Almost 70 years after it was conceived, and 17 years after construction started, the world’s largest train tunnel is to open tomorrow in Switzerland. Dug under the Alps, the 35-mile Gotthard Base Tunnel is expected to streamline and increase rail traffic between northern and southern Europe.
Jason Anzulis will photograph just about anything, but if the colored specks on his camera tell a story, it’s that graffiti artists are his favorite subject.

Holiday train gardens are a tradition for many local fire stations, including the Baltimore City fire house on Glen Avenue in Mount Washington. The Shops at Kenilworth in Towson also has an elaborate garden around its fountain.
The gardens feature dozens of scenes with action figures, Baltimore landmarks, moving parts and, of course, trains.
The gallery shows images from both train gardens, and the video below is from Glen Avenue.
