I was forced, unexpectedly, to take an Amtrak train from BWI airport to Harrisburg, PA. I usually have complete control over my journey by driving in a rental car from one point to another. Once on board the train, I relaxed into my fate and began to remember how much I used to enjoy taking a train. With a two-hour ride until my transfer to another train in Philadelphia, I snuggled into my reclining seat with ample leg room and began watching my favorite on-line Kelby training using the free, yes FREE, internet service on the train. It wasn’t long before the gentle sway and sound of the train’s rhythm took me over and transported me back to a simpler time. Occasionally, I gazed out the window to see the landscape blurring by and family and friends reuniting and saying goodbye. When I finally arrived at my transfer station, Penn Station in Philadelphia, I must say that I was a bit remorseful. Never fear, Penn Station was just another adventure on my journey. I can’t wait to take another train.
