A Connection to our Past

On a dark night in the country there are few sounds except those in nature, it is so easy to feel the isolation wrap around you like a blanket.  You are alone in the world.  But wait.  What is that distant sound? .  The long, low call of a train on a deserted track in a field somewhere.  It is the comforting sound of an age past

Trains are still alive and part of our daily lives in the rural areas surrounding Dayton.  That comforting, yet eerie cry of a lonely train at night, rocking its way through the countryside.  Also, during the day, when we are in a hurry, that familiar “DIng Ding Ding” signaling we are about to be slowed down.

I can never be frustrated or annoyed by the interruption.  Trains are a part of my past-my father was a railroad man and it is in my blood.

Trains are also a part of America’s past and present.  From the early 1800’s trains have been a vital part of our country.  In a world of exciting technology and classy new cars, it is easy to overlook the train.

I am thankful that the small communities around Dayton have continued to allow trains to be a part of our daily lives.  The next time you are stopped by that train as you are rushing, or hear that mournful, lonely cry in the middle of the night.  Stop and enjoy it.  Really listen and look.  You will find that trains are fascinating.
