Overloaded Trains of India and other Countries


India is famous for overcrowded trains with people hanging off the side, but it happens in other countries too. Don’t worry if you are traveling to one of these countries. Most of the trains are perfectly normal.

Originally I thought this picture was from india, but it is actually people traveling for a religious festival in bangladesh. You can see they are wearing muslim outfits and hats.



Another overcrowded train in Bangladesh

Judging by how the people are dressed in the next pictures I think these pictures are actually from india




An overloaded train somewhere in europe

The next pictures are from a rail line in Indonesia. They better watch out for the electric wires while riding on the roof.



subways get overcrowded during rush hour in big cities around the world. here, it looks like employees are pushing passengers into the train car to stuff more in.

  1. The first pic is not from India. That too is from Bangladesh!

    This is during a pilgrimage season.
    Reportage story on the Bangladesh Biswa Ijtema and the overcrowded trains carrying worshippers to and from the prayer site at Tongi Junction north of Dhaka.
    The annual Tablighi Jamaat Islamic movement congregation lasts three days and is attended by over two million Muslims, making it the second largest congregation after the Hajj to Mecca. Devotees from approximately 80 countries, including the host country, Bangladesh, attend the three-day Ijtema seeking divine blessings from Allah. The event focuses on prayers and meditation and does not allow political discussion.

    An overloaded train somewhere in europe – No. 3 is from the Czech or Slovak Republic, IMHO.

  3. The overloaded bus in Europe is in Brno, Czech Republic, University of Technology Coleege. It’s a bus after student’s party.

    Clearly, the last pic is not taken in China.
    In China, no one is allowed to climb up the train and sit above it. Trains in China are electrical. So it’s impossible to sit above the train anywhere in China

    The train in the fourth photo doesn’t look like it’s in China. The people look like they’re South Asian or Southeast Asian, so it could be a train in Indonesia or the Philippines, for example, but not China.

    • None of the pictures are taken in the philippines. we have one old running train Philippine National Railway but the management don’t allow overcrowding especially hanging outside. We’re humbly proud of our medium end trains like Light Rail Transit and Metro Rail Transit 1 & 2 operated in the metropolis of metro manila.LRT was constructed in the early 80’s and MRT 1 in early 90’s and MRT 2 early 2000. It’s more fun in the Philippines…Try to visit our beautiful beaches. like boracay, el nido, puerto galera etc……peace….
