Train Tracks of Life

I do some of my best writing while taking Amtrack from Los Angeles to the Bay Area. One can focus very deep and drop the words with the rhythm of the rail. I know trains very well as I used to work for one. I am what one would call a transportation/logistics expert. I can get you from point A to point B like no tommorrow. But when a train derails, it is a mess. The writing stops and time stands still. Don't bother the drinking car at this point, it might delay the passage but the words still flow. The trip up the coast is highly recommended as the scenery is beautiful. It takes all day to get there but amazing what is accomplished when you are deep in thought! Some like it hot! Those tracks do get hot!

Having taken the train many years ago to the interior of Mexico, Gudalajara to be exact, I must agree with your desire for trains. A wonderful way to travel by means of transportation that time has forgotten. It is sad to find in this day and age that one can no longer take a journey by way of rail as it used to be. In these modern times if one is to book passage on a train that requires more than one day, it is necessary to disembark for the night. No longer may one stay aboard and sleep like a baby as the train rolls on through the darkness of night. Sad, but true. I do long for those days. Quite romantic they were.

Well, one thing I have never done is the HOBO route....Train spotting and look for the empty car with the door open! We can take a free ride with destiantion unknown...easier to pack that way too! Do you mind carrying my 5 bags! Ha!
