I loved riding the train when I was little. We'd go from Minneapolis to Rockford every summer. I was fascinated with the sink and toilet. I remember if you held down the 'flush lever' you could watch the train tracks zooming by underneath. (eouwwwwwwwww! no more walking train tracks!)

You gotta be pulling my leg!!! :\:
I was wondering the same thing.....sometimes I remember what I THOUGHT I saw/did/heard when I was a kid. BUT....then I also remembered this little song my mom must have taught us, and looked it up just now:

Customers will please refrain
from flushing toilets while the train
is standing in the station, I love YOU, dear!



Sooooooooo.....I'm guessing that it was real. :O

Passengers will please refrain
from flushing toilets while the train
is waiting in the station
in full view.

But while waiting on board ship
Passengers can flush their sh**
for it will feed the fishes
in the bay.

Passengers will please refrain
From flushing toilets while the train
Is in the station, darling I love you.
We encourage constipation
While the train is in the station
Moonlight always makes me think of you.


:lol:

Trains are BS. It is not even worth it to take them nowadays. Karina and I were going to take the trains to Santa Barbara a couple weeks ago and bike around for the heck of it. It was going to cost us $160 round trip for something that would've been half a tank of gas round trip. I can't justify wasting that much cash.

When planes typically cost about 2/3 or less of what a train costs, I can't see why anyone takes the train anymore. Amtrak, you suck.

I don't get my mom anything for moms day, but I try to make sure to give her a call and tell her I love her!

love

Trains are good for commuters. They can sit and read the paper instead of driving in traffic. I have considered some trips like yours before Nick and it's even worse with 3 kids.

Oh, local metro is a different story. I know in LA you can take the train to work for just a dollar or two each way. That is a whole 'nother story. That makes sense. You can have a relaxing morning that is cheaper than driving yourself. I'm all for that.

If more people rode the train it would be cheaper. I lived in Japan for a year and LOVED the trains there. Very fast and very smooth. Our trains suck in comparison.
