TRAIN TALES

jan13th

I’d rather travel by train than by the road.

Why so?

For a few good reasons.

What reasons?

You can stretch out and not have to sit all the time. It helps my back.

That’s just one!

I love to watch the scenery pass by and the way the topography changes.

Then?

You could go for a walk to stretch your legs.

Okay.

You can watch so many interesting people, both in the train and at stations.

You would get the same by bus travel.

Sure, but I puke in road travel! There’s nothing more embarrassing than that!

*Today’s pic had my mind scrambling in different directions – should I talk about how I used to travel by train to school, or write about my cousin whose favorite past time was to go the station & watch trains, or about how my husband works for the Indian Railways, or the history of trains in India which has the largest network of rails in Asia or …?Β  This won out and I have also added below my favorite song during my school days and would wait for the music master to lead us in it. I still love this song!
SONG LYRICS
Train whistle blowin’,
Makes a sleepy noise;
Underneath their blankets
Go all the girls and boys.
Rockin’, rollin’, ridin’,
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Driver at the engine,
Fireman rings the bell,
Sandman swings the lantern
To show that all is well.

Rockin’, rollin’, ridin’,
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Maybe it is raining
Where our train will ride;
All the little travellers
Are warm and snug inside.

Rockin’, rollin’, ridin’,
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Somewhere there is sunshine,
Somewhere there is day,
Somewhere there is Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Rockin’, rollin’, ridin’,
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

Rockin’, rollin’, ridin’,
Out along the bay,
All bound for Morningtown,
Many miles away.

  1. Dear Sabina,

    Last spring, for the first time since I was a child, I took a long train trip. I really enjoyed it as I enjoyed your story. Puking on a bus would be most embarrassing. Good one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  2. Or if you’re in the UK you end up sitting on the floor outside the toilet. If the train even turns up.
    Trains which do turn up and aren’t too busy are lovely, though πŸ™‚

  3. I love this, great train of thoughts. I liked to go by train, but I had to do it regularly for a while and the many delays, expensive tickets and overcrouded wagons really put me off it. I do like the bus, but I like everything when I don’t need to drive myself. πŸ™‚
