"You'll get to know the culture and character of a city through its infrastructure," Enig says.

He describes how going down to underground train stations often made him feel like he was stepping onto a film set. He says he is particularly drawn to the Nordic countries for their art, design and landscape.

He is also fascinated by the symmetry and contrast of the railway architectures
