  • great symmetry all in all.. i really dig the diagonals crossing the verticals.. excellent shot! :)

  • funny – my first reaction was to look for someone driving this train – but of course it’s all computer driven or something like that. odd not to see anyone though through the windows and only see the figures decorating the outside of the train. great angle.

  • this train is wonderful. I can’t stop looking at this image to discover always new interesting and fascinating details!
