  2. That's such an American rural scene (from my English perspective!)- love it. A clever retro quality to the photos too.

  3. I adore trains and think that one of the great tragedies of our nation is the disassembling of the rail system. A few years ago I had a train running through my front yard. One of my favorite things was to rush out when I heard a train coming and stand within ten feet of the tracks as the engine passed. It gives a most exhilarating rush!

  6. As a child, I remember seeing both the passenger cars and various rail cars transporting all sorts of goods. They stopping at our small town station and the various crossing across our town.

    The last I visited my home town, they were well underway in removing the tracks.

    Thanks for the memories!

  7. We live in a train town...the main hub is not too far from us and there are tracks next to the dry river bed nearby...it's amazing how many people park on the street nearby to watch the trains roll by!
    Happy New Year!!

  8. I love the different colors in the train cars...sometimes I squint and can see patchwork fabric in things like this. xo

  14. many minutes of my childhood were spent waiting at the railroad crossing of our small town for the trains to pass. they were always freight trains and my brothers and i used to count the cars as they would go by. i didn't lay eyes on a passenger train until we moved to minot, which is on amtrak's empire builder east-west line.

  15. They always make me wonder where they are off to and where they have been. "The City of New Orleans" is now playing in my head! :-)

  16. Now this may seem very ordinary to you, but to me it's rather exotic and somehow essence of America.
