Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday 452 : 12 January 2019

This week’s prompt challenges us with a photo of a train wreck in Ireland and the workers starting to get things back on track. (Excuse the pun.)

I searched for an array of train photos to fit this theme. Here’s what I discovered.

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!
