19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Old railroad car Number 46

This is a photograph of an old railroad car at the Southern Pacific Railroad Museum in Campo, CA. It is rusting away in the sunshine, riddled with bullet hole, its metal side sporting a remarkable likeness to a Mark Rothko painting. Although old 46 is no longer in service, it certainly makes a statement.
