Creativity: The rooftop depot by Francesco Bochicchio

Francesco Bochicchio from Italy has been playing with perspective. He made his Piko Nightpiercer and Piko Gallarate Vectron the stars of these witty little scenes.

Francesco explains: "It was an improvisation, made on the roof of my house in Liguria. I built this small scene of a locomotive depot. Last Saturday afternoon there was a beautiful warm light, and I quickly took advantage of it."

"With these photographs, I wanted to capture a small piece of the sea and the mountains, typical for my Ligurian home area. I hope to see these locomotives reach the Ligurian Sea one day, once the Corona quarantine is over and we can leave our houses again."

"For me, these images of the depot represent home, tranquility. I chose to reproduce a simple Italian depot, still with its the old water columns and the coal deposit."
