    i mastered my perception at a young age while looking at 3d drawn cubes and changing my view of whether they were facing up or down.

    Toward the viewer, I can trace the red segment coming towards me, but it is disjointed going away. Just my opinion though.

    Instead of concentrating on it, try this. Cover one half of the picture with your hand, now cover the other. The train will switch the moment you do this.

    Or cover the center with your finger. Each end of the train is now moving towards the center

    In my city this would be an arrival and I keep on viewing it as such.

    crazy - at first it looked like it was coming towards me but after concentrating real hard now it looks like it`s going straight up.

    I can switch between the two directions it appears to be going. Pretty easy really.

    Charing Cross Jubilee Line northbound. Train going from left to right.
    Or vice-versa.
    Maybe.

    Nice trick, but all it`s doing is back and forth to give the illusion of forward and/or backward travel. Depending on the mind of the viewer

    It looks to me like its just f*cking the tunnel. Its going back and fourth quickly to the point where it gives the illusion of moving consistently in one direction or the other.

    It totally depends on where your mind focuses on the picture, if you look deep into the tunnel, your mind is filling in the blanks and its going in, if you look at the far right of the picture, again, filling in the blanks it`s leaving the tunnel. If you just watch the center you can see, in actuality, the train is f**in the sh## out of that tunnel.

    In reality it should be coming towards the screen as people would rarely be waiting for a train that`s just leaving.
