Kelly was always intrigued by the machinery of motion. Some of his early paintings include Rube Goldberg-type machines composed of miscellaneous mechanical and human parts a la Dali. Later, this manifested itself in his love of the trains and railways which heavily populated his later works. In this painting, as usual, Kelly is fascinated with the role the architecture of the trestle plays within the context of the setting as well as the plunging rush of the train.
