Truly I Am A Fortunate Man--Now I Commute By Rail

In my post on The Model Railway Show podcast I mentioned long lonely Washington DC commutes, radio my only friend, blah, blah, blah.

Thought I'd follow up with how my commute is all different now, because I've been riding a train to work every day. I ride the Washington Metro Red Line back and forth to work, and it rocks!

The train that whisks me home every afternoon. (Steve Lee, 2010)
Plus, it's an electric train--which we like best around here. Pantographs and catenary are preferable (more to follow there--most of Dunes Junction will be under wire) but a third rail will do in a pinch.
