(Paragraph-1): A Railway Station

A railway station is a starting and stopping place for trains. There is a platform for the passengers. Passengers board a train and get off the train at a station. The building of a station is generally made of red bricks.

There are separate waiting rooms for male and female passengers. In all the railway stations there are shed over the platform to protect people from rain and sun. A railway station has different office rooms to use for different purposes. There are restaurants, book stalls, tea stalls, newspaper stalls, and stationary stalls here. A railway station is always a crowded place.

Passengers come and go away. In big railway stations, people stand in a queue to buy tickets but in small stations, they do not need to stand in a queue to buy tickets. When the train arrives, the station becomes a busy place, but when it leaves the station, it becomes calm and quiet again.

The signalman moves his red and green flags to control the movement of the train. Train plays an important role in our communication system and that’s why railway station also serves an important role in our rail communication system.

The train journey is a very popular means of communication among passengers. Compared with other transport the ratio of accidents is much less on the railway. The train journey is also comfortable. There is zero possibility of traffic jams in rail communication. These are some reasons why people love train journeys so much. Whenever the train moves it makes a beautiful sound. This sound makes the passenger nostalgic. This is also a reason why people love train journeys.

Hawkers or vendors are not allowed to roam around a railway station in a developed country to sell their products. But in a developing country, it is a common culture. The hawkers are available at the rail station. They sell different types of things to the passengers. Beggars and vagabonds also roam around at a railway station.

(Paragraph-3): A Metro Rail Station

Bangladesh has entered the era of Metro Rail. Among all the metro rail stations of Dhaka, the first station is Uttara North.

There are so many differences between a normal traditional railway station and a metro rail station. The normal railway station is situated on the ground. But, the stations and the rail track of the Dhaka metro rail (MRT-6) are about 10 meters up from the ground.

A few days ago I made a journey by metro rail from Uttara North station to Shewrapara, Mirpur. Uttara North station is located at Diyabari, Uttara. I was amazed at seeing the massive station. The station was far above my head.

By using stairs I went up the first floor of the station. The rail track is on the second floor. I was surprised to see the beauty and cleanliness of the station. There was not a single dirt on the floor of the station. The whole station was neat and clean. There were no beggars or hawkers. This is unimaginable in a traditional railway station in Bangladesh.

To go to the second floor the passengers have to purchase tickets. There are two ways of buying tickets. One is manual. Paying money to the ticket seller and collecting tickets. The other way is automatic. There is a ticket vending machine to collect tickets. The passengers put money in the machine and the machine gives the desired ticket. Before giving money a passenger has to select the destination and the machine shows the amount of money.

Buying a ticket for Shewrapara station I went up the second floor. This time we the passengers used escalators (moving staircases) to reach the second floor. This is the top floor of the station and the rail track is set on this floor. This floor of the station is also neat and clean. The whole environment was calm and quiet. What a serene atmosphere it was! I fell in love with the beauty of the station.

Within a minute our train came to the platform. All the passengers boarded the train. The train started running toward Mirpur leaving the Uttara North Metro Station.
