No Trains Today

A freight line crossing the Bolivian salt flats – with a freight train only every 3 to 4 days. We weren’t going to hang around for one to appear but the sense of emptiness in this desolate part of the world made me want to record the scene.

Parallel Lines

Multiple tracks on the approach to London Bridge captured from a moving train using an app on my phone to capture the movement seen from looking out of the window.
