Trains were the invention marvel of the 19th century.  It thoroughly revolutionized land transportation and made possible the unprecedented movement of goods and people to and from prairies, villages, towns, and cities.  Unlike airplanes in the century that followed, trains slice through our own civilization up close, leaving behind deep in us an unmistakable rhythm that is punctuated by the bellowing of horns.  This signature sound, even to this day, evokes in us the sense of connectedness to our far away brethren.
