Why Trains Are Awesome

Travel by train is how I think we will feel about travel by car in a decade. You get into a locomotive, and go somewhere.

The beauty is in the letting go. You know there will be some stops, maybe a delay, but that you will arrive. This letting go and arriving feels wonderful — it’s natural rather than forced.

The second piece of beauty is in the tracks. Train tracks go where cars don’t. You get to see an entirely different perspective on your trip. Savor the view.
