While driverless metro trains have already been around for some decades now, most operators still choose to have a driver on hand at the cabin of the train, more so if the tracks are running above ground and in the unlikely event that there are people/objects on the tracks. These are some of the newer metro trains (by Bombardier, in case any of you are interested) introduced in Singapore and they run fully underground. So the rolling stock provider has supplied trains that are fully devoted to commuter space and there are no driver cabins at either end. So there I was, bracing myself against the emergency door frame and with my camera lens placed closed to the glass and squeezed off a slow speed shot.

You got a fantastic result, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I was fascinated by the colour tones: a mix of train headlamp reflections, several communication related LEDs and the exit signages, Ray. Thank you.

I guess this will be today's most original shot, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I never know what will turn up when I plan something like this, Lisl.
Bonne année et bonne santé !
Ayush Basu: Merci, Martine, and all the best to you in the coming year 2018.

A great image Ayush, keep on experimenting!
Ayush Basu: Every now and then, a fancy strikes me, Chris.
And THAT, my friends, is the way to start a new year. BRAVO, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the most encouraging remark, Ginnie.
and got a great result Ayush. I am not sure about driverless trains though
Ayush Basu: Apparently the ones in the London Underground are capable too, Bill, but have some degree of manual control left in.

I've got tunnel vision smile It works really well. Our Docklands Light Railway works with driverless trains. No we have rail strikes as the train operating companies want to remove the guard from the train.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I can see that argument and I am sure both sides have thought of it, Alan.
wow!!! what an awesome shot!! looks like you broke the matrix!! lol i love it, would make a nice desktop pic, hint hint for a large copy haha
happy new year!!! or is your calendar different? lol
Ayush Basu: No I do follow the same calendar, Elaine. So happy new year to you too! Actually I do prefer dark backgrounds for a desktopsmile

Fabulous shot. Happy New Year to you, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: And a very Happy New Year to you too, Astrid. I will be looking forward to your Deutsche Reise pictures.

A stunning ghostly image Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I was fascinated by the colour tones: a mix of train headlamp reflections, several communication related LEDs and the exit signages, Chad.
I love light play of any kind. In the past, many, many rolls of film were devoted to such.
Ayush Basu: I do not often engage in this kind of shots, Mary, but sometimes the results do turn out pleasing.
Thanks for the explanation Ayush, it explains the picture somewhat.
Ayush Basu: I did not want to convey the impression that my new year revelry was affecting my composition skills (or lack of), Brian tongue
And very artistically abstract is the result!
Ayush Basu: I tried a few shots and this was one of the better ones I felt, Tom, thank you!
That is nice. Creative.
Ayush Basu: I tried a few shots and this was one of the better ones I felt, Michael, thank you!
This is actually quite beautiful!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for your heartening response, Elizabeth.
Nicely abstract...
Ayush Basu: Yes, every once in a while I do something like that... for no particular reason, Larry!
