Yes, Virginia, there are still passenger trains in the US

September 30th, 2013, 11am

It was 27°C with scattered clouds. The wind was calm.

It didn’t stop here, but there’s probably a dozen people loitering in the shade of the platform and its sycamore trees. I wonder what line they’re waiting for?

As I write, the crossing gates lower again. This time, a pair of CSX diesel engines rumbles past, horn blaring.

Cassie and David Wade said thanks.
