Between Khar & Bandra
What lies between Khar Road and Bandra?
1. A Graveyard
2. A Crematorium
3. A Turntable
4. All of the above
5. None of the above
As the train takes up the bridge to cross over from the Western Line to the Harbour Line, the horizon opens up and a new world unfolds.
2. Here’s the crematorium. I have often spotted mourning people around a pyre here.
3. Here’s the turn-table! The massive turn-table. My best guess is that it is used to turn engines around. All my friends laughed when I told them this. They thought I was speaking about electric trains. Electric trains can be run either way you see. But me, I was speaking about the long-distance outstation trains. They have engines you know, and maybe they turn engines around using this turntable mechanism? It looks out of this world to me :-)
What do you think it is…?
