"Welcome Aboard"

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."
