    TRAINS! Anybody else like them?

    I am headed out on my third cross-county train trip tomorrow.

    Are there others who like trains here?

    I love to hear them go by in the distance, but I've never ridden on one.

    They cover some beautiful scenery in the US.

    This trip is Chicago to Seattle, then a layover, then down to Los Angeles, with roomettes in the sleeper car.

    I have ridden on Steam Trains a number of times, in fact more often than diesel. I rode a diesel only once. Talk about irony. Yes I enjoy trains, but I can't say I enjoy people that obsess over them. I find most of them a bit prickly and childish. There are a few exception to this rule.

    My dad was a railroad man, so we traveled a lot by train. It's a pleasant and civilized way to go, and Mrs. Barbarian and I enjoy riding them.

    By the time I was old enough to notice, the old steam engines were just about gone; electric diesels ruled.

    Good to see that there's more track being laid now; high-speed rail between cities would be a great way to deal with infrastructure problems.
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.
