I have included six portraits with three being ‘workshop’ staff and three being ‘station’ staff. I think it is interesting to compare the details of their attire and environment next to each other to see how these people doing very different jobs at this same train line compare visually. Beyond the visual though they share mutual interests in the community aspect of the line as well as the interest in old trains and all interact daily. That was where my interest for this series gained its strength really. I was interested in what drives everyone at this line to work here and the general consensus was for the comradery/ community and keeping the old trains/ tools and ideas alive. The non-human photographs represent everyone’s mutual interest, despite very different roles to play in the smooth running of the line.
