Letter writing about a railway journey, writing format.

So, here I am going to show how you can write a letter. In this article, we will provide you with detailed information regarding the formal letter format about a railway journey. Read on to know everything about formal letter format. Below I have given the full format of a letter, by following which you can write the letter and can apply for.



Santhal Parganas,

My dear father, 16 January

I reached here safely last evening. Though the compartment was rather full, I had a pleasant journey all through. Among my fellow passengers was a class mate of mine. We took our seats on a side bench and enjoyed the sights of scattered greens and of the fields full of crops of all kinds.

The train reached Asansol at about 3 p.m. when we shared our tiffin and tea between ourselves. Leaving Asansol, we noticed the Indian Iron and Steel Works at Burnpur, a short way off. After Sitarampur a distinct change was noticed in the landscape. The soil was reddish, the fields were undulating and full of shrubs and small trees here and there. At Chittaranjan we saw at a short distance the great Chittaranjan Locomotive Works.

When the train reached Madhupur, I found Mahendra waitingon the platform with his mother. They greeted me heartily. Bidding farewell to my class-mate, I got down with my luggage and reached.

Mahendra’s house at about 6 p.m. Everybody here is all attention to me, and I feel quite at home. You need not have any worry about me. With respects to you and mother and love to Chhabi.

I remain,

Yours affectionately,
