Historical Context:
This is significant because the train station was a major move allocated to the government and operated under their control.This is a picture of the train that Posada has criticized throughout his career, and there was so much frustration by the public that they pushed it off if the track. Posada claimed it was ineffective and the brought too many soldiers into the city to guard the train stations.
