3 Trains

On the way home from the airport tonight, I had to stop and wait three separate times for trains…thought I was back in the big city about 25 years back…they were all passenger trains…half-filled if that passenger trains…I remember the good old days when the mile long freight trains would block the crossing for an hour…they’d be almost past when they would stop and back up…and of course you were in a hurry to get where you were going…always wanted to go somewhere cross country in a train but it’s not cheap and their routes look like they were designed by Picasso…no such thing as hopping on and getting somewhere direct…at least where I live.
