February’s picture shows the front of the Mundo a Vapor Museum (Steam World Museum) in Canela, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The “train crash” is a replica of an actual incident in Paris’ Montparnasse quarter in 1895, when a train arriving in the station was unable to stop and crashed through onto the street beyond.

Three readers sent in correct answers, and TERREL M. EMMONS of Springfield, Virginia, won the drawing. We thank Grace Rickard of Borrego Springs, California, for sending in the photo.
