Cochin Harbour Terminus revisted - Photos from Cochin Harbour Terminus and Mattanchery Halt. By Jimmy Jose
Stolen from the Colonial age. The impressive Cochin Harbor Terminus Station served as the nerve centre for Railway activities in Cochin for over 50 years until being abandoned in 2004
Another view of the colonial station. Mute reminder of a bygone era
The old clock. Broken and dead. Forever??
Platform no. 1 of the Station. Station has no station master to keep it clean!
Platform No. 2. Imagine a WDM 2 hauled Netravati Express here!
Station Manager's room. Locked forever?
Empty and locked up offices of the station.
Another view of the ghost station. The table and chair belonged to RPF personnel posted there
Freshly painted late running board. Was it ever used after the painting?
Erstwhile train timings, when on the day the station was closed down. Note the board reading "NO TRAIN SERVICE FROM THE STATION".
Interior of the building. Railway offices are placed as an island inside the building with corridors on both sides.
View of the platform and signalling cabin of the station head on. What a terrible sight. Imagine a busy train preparing to leave here
Proud signals that once held their trains in place. No more trains to control. Yet they strikingly stand out
An old goods wagon now rests peacefully near the coach maintenance area. RIP!
The once busy coach maintenance yard is now anti social's heaven. Thanks to the railway apathy
