there are no more trains in newfoundland. so the only experience my grand children will have of trains is in visiting the train museums.
i travelled alot on trains in my late teens and early 20's. it was the late 60's and it cost $50.00 one way to travel from toronto to vancouver. there was such an elegance and decorum (even if i was an impoverished backpacker). eating in the dining car with crisp white linen.
the cosiness of the sleeper cars.
the grand children find their own ways to enjoy trains.
