Panaromic View of Udhampur Station - A perfect picturesque view with huge mountains on the backdrop.
Right at the background is the taxi stand. The building at the centre is the opening into the station premises while the one just right to it is the GRP Office.
Right at the middle building, one can see the rightmost portion covered with

glass. That is the security check where the luggage are frisked. One has to lift every bag in order to put in the machine.
The building leads to the FOB which one has to climb down to get into the platforms.
The station has 2 retiring rooms (Non-AC). Charges of which are 400/- for 24 hours and 300/- for 12 hours. The waiting room for lower classes are located to the left of this entrance while for the upper class is to the right.
Just to add some points:
1) Security is pretty tight inside as well as outside.
2) Two ATM's are located outside the station premises; SBI and J&K Bank.
3) The Taxi/Auto stand is located bang opposite to the station building.
4) Food options are pretty limited. All you can expect are biscuits, cakes, water and cold drinks.
5) The SM Room is located to the left of the main entrance.
6) The guy sitting at a room just left to the Waiting Room for lower classes has the chart for each and every train ex-UHP with him. If in doubt, one can approach him to verify the final status of your PNR.
7) There is a slope-way leading from PF 1 straight to a level above in front of the entrance.
8) Not much coolies hanging around.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
