A Million Footsteps

“As I walk into the stately Maradana Railway Station approximately forty years later, not much has changed. Dark iron arches into the tin roof over the platforms, and the wooden stairs sag with the weight of a century, a million footfalls, and tens of thousands of rush hours.”

The recently renovated stairs connecting the broad centre platform of the Maradana Railway Station to the wood and iron pedestrian walkway above, and (below) the way it looked five years ago. This is Colombo’s second-oldest operational railway station, opened in 1908. Shot on assignment for Serendib magazine. My story, A Visit to the Maradana Railway Station, ran in the June 2017 issue.
