Trains

From: "Henri" archaeology1280@excite.com

I work near a railroad that always has slow trains passing us. They are very old cargo trains on a very old railway and I'm very concerned about them since they are moving along a railway path that has been mapped and created right next to a stream. It must have been built a long time ago.

In the future we shouldn't build railroads next to water areas since trains work with electricity and water that is near that kind of system is not as safe as those that are far away from water. For safer trains we need less rails next to water streams. It's actually very nice to see trains quietly riding along stream paths though it's also risky.

This is one of those e-mails that seems very drawn out. Though, I just thought that I should mention it to you. The museum seems like a good place to share chatting ideas with on trains. I'd send this message to a modern train company though these trains are a bit ancient.
