Old and New

I have to park my car and walk 10 minuntes to get to the beach I call heaven... on the way back to my car on Saturday I was struck by this view...


In the background the ultra modern waterfalls of the Koolina Golf course~~~ street lights, paved road....


In the foreground... a railroad track a hundred years old at least...The Hawaiian Railroad was used to haul sugar cane and carry passengers and almost circled the whole island!




Then it occurred to me that this train in old Hawaii, took people to within STEPS of the beach i call Heaven...



I think in the new Hawaii....we goofed! We should of kept the train..... dumped the cars!










i am an island gal....

Years since last I was in a train travelling across the country.
Agree with you that it is indeed a wonderful mean of movement, maybe the second best, after feet.

Please have a wonderful Wednesday.

We should have done the same here in Lake Tahoe.

We have the same problem here in South Africa. The railway system is falling in disrepair while transport is lacking. On the other side of the coin the tourist trains are thriving.

I love train travel too.

And I think I'd love Heaven too.
