Trip to Kotdwar : A morning well spent.
This is probably another one of the various places that fail to make to an RF's bucket-list just because its remotely located and not many trains pay a visit. Well for me, the station was sheer natural beauty. There was just one train, just one loco, still clicking around didn't approach boredom and it was only after a stern warning by the LP landed over me that I could hit the bench.

The view of Shiwalik hills starts hitting clarity as you approach KTW. It is situated right at the foothills where the gradient just seem to elevate. There's just one platforms and another loop line that bifurcates into two to give way to something you can call a "yard".
Rake of 14041-slip cum 13009-slip is not washed/maintained here but is immediately sent back as 54092 KTW-NBD Pass.

These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
