Railroads are one of the primary modes of transportation used around the world, both for goods as well as for people. With the development of the steam engine, railroads exploded in use in both Europe and the United States, before spreading around the world, and then experiencing a decline.

However, railroads are seeing a resurgence around the world, particularly in Asia, with the development of high speed rail. Railroads do have some unique challenges though, as they require track to be laid over a wide area, which leaves a noticeable mark on the environment, and they also produce significant noise, which many homeowners object to having nearby.

For photographers though, the contrast between the natural and the man-made can be quite dramatic:
