Tiffany's Tuesday Tunes: Ridin' the Rails

I Been Workin on the Railroad

We like to travel, but not the typical travel you might think of.  Rather than going to exotic locals, we like unusual places,  kitschy places, filming locations, natural beauty.  In short, our destinations are often as nerdy as we are.  And I would not have it any other way.  We always travel by car, as neither of us is fond of flying, and so far we have not traveled anywhere that requires flying, though one day I am sure we will.

We have some upcoming travel plans that include an entirely new adventure for us: traveling by train.  Sure, I have taken novelty train rides, but to actually travel to a large bustling train station?  This is going to be fascinating.  Train travel gaining popularity a bit, but Americans really do not use it as much as Europeans do.  If we decide that we like this mode of travel, we may expand our travel area a little.

In order to prepare for our upcoming adventure, I have compiled a playlist devoted to songs of the rails.  Have a seat and enjoy the ride.
