A proposal at a train station seems like something one would watch in a romantic-comedy movie. Last week, Nirmal Chohan, 27, took the plunge by tearing a page from the script and proposing to his long-distance girlfriend, Vidya Patel, it in real life at London’s Euston Station.

Patel, 26, had just arrived at the London’s busiest interchange station after travelling from her home in Birmingham. To her surprise, Chohan got down on one knee and asked her to marry him in the presence of both their families.
“It has been a dream planning this surprise. For the proposal to happen under such circumstances, with both families present, is truly special. None of this would have been possible without their help, and that of Avanti West Coast and Network Rail, so I’ll always be grateful for this,” said Chohan.

The young couple used to meet at the Euston station after long periods of being away from each other, which made the affair so special with Chohan adding, ““The trains and Euston station collectively made the distance in our relationship less of an obstacle, and more a warm, homely location where I knew I’d always get to see her again.”
