Subject: RE: Discussion: Love Affair With Trains
Thank you all for the extremely kind comments. There are wondeful train songs that are being pointed out from other countries. But the American love affair with the rails is different due to that pioneering/inventing parallel that helped bring many diverse people together in a large and growing country. America in general has always had some kind of close bond with "machinery" and the railroads were a step along the way.
