16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

A popular railway line remains as main touristic attraction in Battambang (Cambodia). Every day, the drivers of small bamboo trains carry dozens of tourist through a short tour. This activity plays a key role in the economic survival of many families in the area. Due to the narrow and one directional railway every time that two trains meet the drivers must disassemble one bamboo train to let the other pass through. This is a repetitive and tedious process repeated many times during the day. In this picture I captured the feeling of one of the drivers starting the dismantling again.
