After that, the train started moving. At first, it moved slowly. But gradually it gained speed and began to run very fast. I could see the train running among green fields, beside hills, forests, and houses. The train stopped at only a few stations such as Feni, Comilla, and Zia International Airport stations. At last, it reached Dhaka.

It was so crowded in there. Cars, taxis, rickshaws, and other vehicles were coming to the station with passengers. Porters running behind them. There was a long queue before the ticket counter. We had to stand in the queue before the ticket counter for some time to buy tickets. We bought two first-class tickets.

Description: We were traveling in the morning sitting in a first-class compartment on the train. The seats were very comfortable. The train started for Dhaka. I sat beside the windows. I kept looking outside through the windows. The train ran on. The train sped up and the houses and trees on both sides of the road seemed to be running speedily backward. The pleasant breeze of the open space cooled the compartment and made it more enjoyable. The scenes and sights were changing every moment. I was quite glad to see the farmers plowing their land. I saw many people catching fish in the river. I saw a lot of interesting sights. Lots of boats were sailing on the rivers. Apart from these, I saw many attractive things during the journey.

When the train left Kulaura junction and was approaching Srimangal, I saw many beautiful tea gardens, rubber gardens, and hills. The natural beauties of Srimangal are beyond description. I never forget these wonderful scenes. The train stopped only at a few important stations during the journey. The hurry of the passengers, the noise of the hawkers and vendors, and the movement of the exciting people were really very interesting sights in my train journey.

Conclusion: It was getting dark. We reached Kamalapur Railway Station in Dhaka at dusk. We got off the train. My cousin along with her husband was waiting there for us in their car. They took us to their house at Uttara in Dhaka. We stayed with them in Dhaka for a week and enjoyed our stay there very much. Then we return home by train again. It was really a wonderful journey by train. I shall remember this journey forever.
