Joyous moment with Train

This image was selected for our Trainspotting 2012 photography competition and exhibition. This photograph, taken in Bangladesh, was highly commended for the Diesel electric or electric trains or trams category

The photographers caption reads:

Kids are really fond of train. This is hard to find a child without having a toy train in their home. And when they see the real train, their happiness knows no bound. Here a slum boy is frisking with an abandoned train on a rainy day. In fact, being fascinated to train from my childhood, I expressed myself through the boy.
