Get your choo-choo on

Tomorrow is National Train Day. According to the site,

On May 10, 1869, in Promontory Summit, Utah, the "golden spike" was driven into the final tie that joined 1,776 miles of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railways, ceremonially creating the nation’s first transcontinental railroad. And America was transformed.

NTD will be celebrated this Saturday in DC, LA, Chicago and NYC. In D.C., National Train Day Spokesperson Al Roker will join the Amtrak CEO to celebrate "the way trains connect people and places." I’ve already addressed my love of trains on this blog before, so I guess there is no need to iterate. But the celebration at Union Station this Saturday sounds pretty cool--specially the historic train tour and the free concert with Sara Bareilles (Sara who?).
