Artist's Description

This wreck of a loco heads up the Kyiv – Odesa Express as it pulls out of Kyiv Pasazhyrs’kyi on Saturday afternoon. The windscreen is smashed, the mirrors and windscreen wipers are missing, the bodywork is totally corroded and the driver looks about 17. But not to worry, he’s got two mates in the cab to help him.

If all goes well, it will eventually manage the 655km in 11h14m, an average speed of 58km/h.

Photo taken at Kyiv main passenger station, Ukraine, July 2011, as plans for a photo blog of travelling round the world by train start to take shape.

Processing: HDR generated from five exposures (-2, -1, 0, +1, +2) of a single image using Photomatix.
