The sound of a train at night has always been music to me.All due respect to people who dislike hearing trains, etc. But they've always been music to me. Especially late at night, from a windy distance.... All the romantic cliches ring true to me. It's even okay when they interrupt listening to music and guitar playing. I've had some of the best hours and epiphanies of my life on long train rides. And some of my happiest moments are lying on the floor on a summer's night, under an oscillating fan, listening to a distant baseball game, while hearing a train making its lonely route through our nearby river valley. Floaty goodness, indeed.
We'd be a lot better off ecologically and emotionally with available and reliable passenger train service between cities again. Just sayin'....
