Little Red Train Engine

This is more likely the best way to introduce young ones to the ways of railroading. Call me domesticated, but going a round a small park in a little passenger train at about 5 mph is a pretty good time. Mall trains have come a long that they now go around entire malls, however, nothing beats the outdoors and actual track. For as much as like it, I don't think I could cut leaving in a train heavy society. After reading Captains Courageous, it took them something like 57 hours to go from LA to Boston (totally botching the cities, BTW). Then again, if you had money and could have your own car, including dining car, then maybe it was better than flying. Don't forget, I am still holding out hope for teleportation someday.
