I miss the trains
Not that many years ago, some wise government decided that we no longer needed the train in most of Nova Scotia, the only tracks left were in the high-population areas. Once the tracks were taken up, there were these great trails for ATV's, bikes and walkers.
I sorely miss the train and the way of life they provided - the roads have fallen to pieces as the trucks are overloaded with weight and the leaders of the day actually need to spend more money on road repairs/replacement than it as to maintain the old train and tracks infrastucture.
Oh well. Nice to still see the tracks down on Tower Road and Young Avenue. My old film images don't look this sweet.
