Happy National Train Day!!

There is something captivating about watching these 1.5 mile long trains dashing across the Kansas Prairie at 70 mph. Freight trains are so economical and environmentally friendly that even shipping companies use the railroads for long distance shipping that isn't time sensitive. 

I've often thought the powers-that-be designated National Train Day to be the day before Monther's Day so Mom can take a nap before she is awakened early the next day for breakfast in bed. 
So, happy National Train Day and here's a salute to the men and women who work 24/7/366 to keep the trains rollin' down the track.
