Caught a fleeting glimpse of this white drifter and couldnt help but to rush to the window to see what it was? I am happy to share it here:

Science Express is a unique science exhibition on a 16-coach, fully AC train, traveling across India. This exhibition showcases cutting-edge research in Science. An Indo-German collaborative project; it was flagged off on 30 October 2007 by Honorable Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh and German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel.
