It was a thoroughly enjoyable and exhilarating RF experience as 5 Kolkata based admins and ardent railfans viz. Sabyasachi, BG, Arkya, Souvik and PKV converged at Santragachi Station at 5.30 pm today evening. The plan for the RF session had been hatched earlier in the morning and all 5 were game enough to participate at such short notice. Absentee invitees were admins Bibek and Gaurav due to pre-occupations.
The railfanning experience at SRC lasted for almost an hour and included a visit to the famous but now hyacinth clogged Santragachi waterbody (jheel in Bengali) which is home to thousands of migratory birds in the cooler climes of December and January.
