When I visited malappuram, I had an opportunity of crossing the Nilambur Railroad track. I always wished to travel in train by this track. It was the perfect timing that helped me a lot in taking this shot. I was inside my vehicle at the front seat and set my camera before I clicked. When I clicked it, I was very happy to get such a photo, because this the first one of this kind I have taken till yet.

Nilambur Railway track was established during the British rule in India. They wanted to take the goods which was mainly the teak wood to the civilised areas and had this track built, connecting to the Calicut side. The Nilambur teak plantation is the oldest teak plantation in the world.
