Like a Breeze, the Train Rolls by 

In the days of yore, when freight was largely carried via sail or riverboat, the arrival of a vessel was often a celebratory occasion. In the 21st century, a diesel-electric train passes with hardly any fanfare. Though on this day, at least two people paused to take notice. Canadian National 5527 rolled by with the horn blaring and the thunder of hundreds of tons of steel.
