Everytime I see a train, I get super excited! I film them with my cell phone when one "drives" by along the highway. I take photographs of them obsessively (the ones I have listed in my Etsy shop and on this blog are a very small percentage of the number of train photographs I actually have). My great great grandfather was a train conductor, so maybe that explains the fascination. I love their aesthetic. The rivets piecing the large plates of steel together, the heaviness and massiveness of them is imposing. They seem so reliable. I love the messages on the risers of these passenger steps. "Watch your step", and "Welcome Aboard."
