A Gift from Karl & Melanie Lobo (Part II)

Continuing with the superb pictures which KARL LOBO has sent us, we have a second post featuring another set of shots from Walter Tresslor's times. All priceless, of course. Sometimes I wonder why we didn't discover Karl earlier. . . His contribution has made all the difference to this webpage changing it from a struggling, amateurish blog to something that really conveys the flavour of the Railways of the Raj. As before, picture captions will be found listed together at the beginning.
