I remember the day I made this drawing.
Ulf Nystroem, a nerd on trains and tracks, and so
pleasant to work with, had initiated a serie of
reports on old industrial railways.
This was our last commission on that subject.
And so we went by this engine
heavy laden with timber. Up in Dalsland.
Slowly, very slowly, we passed old stations, green fields
and meadows, glittering lakes and rivers.
The track was not in the best shape and
there were a good deal of tossing.
We brought sandwiches and coffee.
It was a summer day in 2008.
