I’ve enjoyed the industrial sounds of a screeching train running across the tracks. The music that that makes. I’ve always had a love for mass transit, especially on rails. Whether light rail, subway, elevated line, trolly, or cross country I appreciated it. I felt this method of transportation represented the working classes, or me and my kinfolk.
