Hear the train a comin’

I admit it, I still think there’s something really cool about the sound and power of a big locomotive rolling down the line.  Feeling the rush of wind and the ground tremble as several thousand tons of steel carries cargo loads to and from all over the country.  A friend recently suggested I hop a train and just go somewhere, anywhere.  I may just take her up on that idea.
