34 of 365

Trains are a big part of my family history.
Even Digby's family.  Our forefathers used to work the railways.
We grew up hearing so many Railway Stories about life on the rails.
Train commuting was such a big part of my parents and grandparent's life,
taking long train trips up middle-Africa to school.
It was part of English colonialism at it's finest.

It's not as glamorous as that here anymore.
But when I lived in the UK - I got to experience that first hand.
I still love the sound of a passing train, 
and train trips are still one of my favourite ways to commute.
