Sepia Saturday

2014.05W.27
This week’s prompt shows railroad tracks heading towards the horizon.

I’m not sure why, but I think it’s because when I think of trains I tend to remember all the train accident cases we had to read about in law school. The 19th and early 20th century had frequent derailments and accidents at stations.

This Montparness derailment in 1895 is so transfixing. What a horrible accident!

  1. I reacted to that first photo in a similar manner as if the engine had been an animal. which had come to grief. Somehow it looks as though the engine had been a living thing and now it is broken and twisted. As for the Paris photo. Quite horrifying. But the same applies to all train accidents.
