FLASH!!!! :Local couple takes train!

May 01, 2015

From our friend Fritz Plous:

You can get an idea of how far this country is behind when somebody's decision to take the train rather than drive is reported as front-page news. And the reporter unintentionally enhances the "otherness" of train travel by describing life aboard almost like an exploration through Deepest Inner Bazookastan.

Good photos of the restored St. Paul Union Depot, however.  The travelers would have encountered something similar when disembarking at the restored King Street Station in Seattle.  Both buildings feature lots of shiny white marble.
