Sound of a train whistle

Off in the distance I can hear a train whistle and it sounds so welcoming.  I wonder where the train is heading and where it's coming from.

Taking a train instead of another mode of transportation can be such a change.  It may not be any faster than driving, but it gives you a chance to relax and see things differently.  A train can sometimes take you through areas where there isn't a road close by, and other times you will be right beside a road.

Trains have been around for years, and it is amazing how many people have never taken a train other than their community trains, such as Go Transit or TTC.  A train will get you to small towns and communities where commercial flights don't go, and show you a different view of things.

I have taken a train between cities, and I found it so relaxing, and it gives you time to think, work or recharge.  Listening to the sounds of the train can also be a soothing sound.

The whistle blows again in the distance, and now it fades away.  An adventure is happening for someone and someone else may be left behind only to see the train fade away in the distance.
