The Night Train to Khayelitsha, South Africa 2009It is  17:35 and one of the trains to Khayelitsha departs from Cape Town’s train  station. The masses of people travelling on this line are packed into the train  coaches. The carriages get so full that people hang out of the windows and doors  or stand in between the coaches. This of course is a dangerous activity  but cannot be helped as there is simply not enough space during the daily rush  hours. After an already long day at work in town the commuters have to endure a  last travel to their homes. The environment is untidy, dark and there is no  space to move around.
