I think it is a bit sad to see a railway station clock out of order.
This lonely electric train is in Porto Ceresio, on the Italian side of Lago di Lugano. Railway line from Varese to Porto Ceresio was opened in 1894 and closed in the end of 2009.

A title that well illustrates this abandoned train station. Well presented the train stopped in the curve of the rails.

Attractive train scene, always a good subject. It looks being out of order, we have also a lot of railway stations closed nowadays...

You choose a very nice angle beside the train, you create depth and perspective
Fantastic panorama view about the area.
Composition and presentation are very well photographed.
Very well done, TfS.

Looking at this lovely picture I should say: Line closed at 2008-07-19. The machinist stopped the train here an hour ago and everybody left. Deserted forever. Eternalised by Ktanska.

The station looks rather sad with all the grass and weeds growing up through the concrete and railway lines. A great shot with strong curves and colour.
Kind Regards, Ann

Sad situation but beautiful scene and aesthetic composition. The train is a cute subject and the display of colors is nice.
