Trains tap into some deep American collective memory.  – Dana Frank

 

FOCUS:  Black & White

What is it about trains that strike such a cord of nostalgia?  For as long as I can remember I have heard the train whistle blow as it passes through town several times a day, but most notably late at night.  Whoooooooooot, Whoooooooooot, Whoooooooooot!!  Like baseball and apple pie, this seemingly outdated mode of transportation virtually screams of the ‘Good Ol’ Days’ and ‘Americana’.
