Just because you don’t have a passion for trains, you’re not interested in them at all, you hate them, or are even disgusted by them, that doesn’t mean you don’t need to know their history.

Whether we like them or not, they are part of the landscape in which we live.
And their presence in this landscape, like that of churches and swamps, like huge rapeseed fields or semi-deserted housing estates, is not of an arbitrary nature.

Which is why tonight we will attempt an exercise in memory.
In the hope of simultaneously doing an exercise in justice.
