Short Paragraph on A Railway Station
Question: Write a paragraph about ‘A Railway station‘. In your paragraph, describe the atmosphere of a railway station, the movement of sellers and buyers, hawkers and porters, etc.
Answer: A railway station is very crowded. It plays an important: role in the road transport system in Bangladesh. In a railway station, the passengers stand in queues to collect their tickets in front of the ticket counters. The station is always crowded with passengers, hawkers, and porters. There are stalls of peddlers, booksellers and waiting rooms in large stations. Vergers shout their trade cries. Who has not heard the trade cry `Cha-gram’ or ‘Thanda Pani’ in the railway station? When a train reaches the station, the passengers hurry to get off the train. At the same time, passengers waiting for the train want to get into the train. As a result, a collision of two groups of passengers takes place. The whistling sound of the departing train creates a sense of vacuum in the minds of passengers.
