Trains on the Brain
This summer I went to the Railroad Museum in Monon, Indiana. There is a restaurant which has trains, of course, running on tracks above you.
This Saturday, I went to the library and picked out a book to read called Nothing Like It in the World by Stephen Ambrose. It is all about the Transcontinental railroad. I truly find it fascinating how the civil war and the theme of unifiying the nation shaped how the railroad came into being.
So, I guess I have trains on the brain.
