Dragged Kicking and Screaming...

... into the 19th century!

Work has finally begun on the Commuter Rail Station in my home town. We actually had rail transit here before- in 1890! Some things go round in circles I guess- although this Commuter Rail will only go back and forth to Minneapolis, at least at first. I found it interesting that some communities opted out vehemently, but this was before $4 a gallon gasoline, however. Maybe, just maybe, I will finally be able to fulfill my dream of walking to Iceland.
