Trains

Today’sprompt…

I recently watched a  television show (Doctor Quinn) where the cast were waiting for the railway to reach their town. How trains have changed since those days! I suppose for daily commuters, trains are just a means of getting from A to B, but I rarely travel by train and when I do, I love it. I observe the people and the sights outside, andI always feel inspired 🙂

  1. I love people watching 🙂

    • Me, too 🙂 I once travelled on a suburban train into the city for a writing workshop and almost everyone was reading papers, listening through headphones or just staring out the windows, except one young girl who was staying in Melbourne for two weeks to attend hairdressing college as part of her apprenticeship. She came and sat beside me and we talked all the way (about a half an hour journey). When it was time to get off she thanked me and said how nice it had been as no one had talked to her on the other days but that she could tell right away I was from the country just like her. On the return trip with trains going every few minutes we found ourselves in the same carriage again. That was seven years ago but I often wonder where she is now, perhaps with her own salon in her country town. Two like minds, a generation apart. I wonder if she ever remembers me?
