Inspired by the songs of elizabeth cottons´ & sohail rana´s train stories,
this is a short selection of some mostly unknown raiload tracks. I tried to skpip well known classics like bruce springsteen or tom waits as well as the amazing rail band du mali for it didn´t really match to the mood of this compiltation.
The Photos are shot after a stormy day out of a train window between frankfurt and mannheim.
