Project Athena - 13 (Trains and Rails)

I've Been Working on the Railroad (Theme)

Two drunks were walking upgrade between the railroad tracks. One of them said, “this is the longest stairway I have ever been on.” The other replied to this, “It’s not the stairs that bother me, it’s the low hand rails.” Ha-Ha.

Another day of shooting by the railroad tracks and I am perpetually impressed with the essence of this form of transportation. It is pure fortitude and resilience along with determination and power. Next week, I will actually get to ride on a train for the first time since I was 2 years old. I look forward to hearing the groans and clanks of steel on steel and feeling the force of the engine tugging at the cars. Maybe I will even post an extra train picture for fun.
