A suburban Buenos Aires train


Everyone knows about global landmarks, but I’m just as interested in seeing photos of how people live in various places.

A post-migraine stupor over the weekend had me reading Wikipedia’s articles on the mass-transit system in Buenos Aires, and to this photo of a 500-series train by Maruicio V. Genta. I haven’t been able to stop looking at it.

It also lead me down the rabbithole of thinking where else has yellow suburban carriages like this. I could think of Berlin, The Netherlands, and Tokyo off the top of my head. I wish more did; it’s a striking colour and potentially safer.
