Hope this letter of mine finds you in the best of health and spirit. My heart fills with joy to share with you about my first experience of a train journey from New Delhi to Chennai by Tamil Nadu Express.
On the appointed date, my parents and I reached New Delhi Railway Station at 5.20 am. The train was already on the main platform. We quickly boarded the train and occupied our seats. A tingle of excitement ran through my veins as the train began to move at 6.00 A.M.
I enjoyed every minute of it despite the journey being so long. Comfort is one of the biggest advantages of the train journey. Sleeping berths made the train journey a relaxing experience. I enjoyed the view of the farmlands while the train was passing through green paddy fields. Like me, on a train journey, you can pass time by reading your favourite storybook, listening to music etc. The train journey offered me an unforgettable experience.
No more today.More when we shall meet each other. Convey my regards to Uncle and Aunty.
Question-2: You have been on a trip to Hyderabad by train. Write a letter to a friend who couldn’t join you on the trip, describing him/her about the train journey.
Hints: Beginning of the journey-description-you missed him/her-Eager to hear from the friend

How are you? I’m fine here. With immense joy and happiness, I wish to tell you about my journey to Hyderabad by train.
Train journeys always fascinate me. This time it was more special as I was accompanied by our friends. We reached Sealdah Station at 6 in the morning. We were quick to find our compartment and soon boarded the train. As the train sped up, we all started hooting. Anita sat beside me and we chatted as we looked outside.
Soon after our breakfast, we all played antakshari. Few other passengers also joined us in the game and we had a lot of fun. We missed your presence on the journey. Due to excitement, we could not sleep at night and discuss our love for train journeys for the rest of the night. We enjoyed and made several beautiful memories on our way.
You were not with us, but I hope you enjoyed reading the letter. I can’t wait to hear from you soon. Convey my regards to your parents.
Question-3: Write a letter to your friend narrating to him/her about a funny incident that happened while you were travelling by train.
Hints: Short description of the journey- the horrible incident- lesson learnt

I’m very glad to know from your letter that you are hale and hearty. I cannot stop myself from sharing a horrible incident that happened while I was travelling by train.
My family and I were travelling to Santiniketan to attend my cousin’s wedding. The compartment we boarded was very crowded. After almost an hour we all managed to get seats. My parents were busy talking to each other while I dozed off reading a book. Sudden chaos in the train disrupted my sleep. An old woman was crying as someone had snatched away from her gold chain.
Luckily as the train was extremely crowded the thief couldn’t manage to elope. Passengers caught him by the collar and rescued the jewellery from him. Later he was handed him over to the railway authority. From this incident, I learnt to be extra careful especially while travelling by train and asking you to be alert also.
Take care of yourself. My regards to uncle and auntie and love to your brother.
Question-4: You are Reshma, You have a lot of experience of travelling by train. Write a letter to your friend about the advantages of the train journey.
Hint: Your favourite mode of transport- highlight the advantages- ask your friend’s view
September 26, 2021
I hope this letter finds you in pink of your health. As you wanted to know why I love train journeys, today in this letter I’ll be highlighting the advantages of journey by train.
One of the main advantages is the comfort and convenience it offers especially on overnight journeys. If you choose to travel by train, you can enjoy the view of the countryside from your comfortable window seat. Unlike the aeroplanes, there is no restriction on the luggage.
The time spent travelling can be put to productive use like reading a book or working on the laptop. The train journeys are more budget-friendly. One can carry their own food and drinks. Train journeys are eco-friendly also. So if you care about our mother earth, you should consider travelling by train as much as possible.
I would love to know which mode of transport you enjoy while travelling a long distance. Convey my regards to uncle and auntie and love to the little Bunty.
