596 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE RURAL TRAINS ARE DRAWN BY WOOD-BURNING ENGINES At each station men toss fuel into the tender from convenient piles stacked beside the track, while the passengers casually pass the time of day with relatives and friends.

They are sometimes found in interiors, but more frequently in facades, as here.
