It’s been eight years since I’d ridden a freight train. There’s not really a good specific reason why… I was just usually in too much of a hurry, or had too specific a destination. So I’ve hitchhiked, bought bus and train and airplane and boat tickets, bummed rides, lived in a minivan… I certainly haven’t stopped traveling. But I hadn’t ridden a freight train since 2002. But I went to see a friend off on her trip south and decided to join her for the first leg of it. A few more pictures after the cut.
