The article shares the author's views about railroad. The author believes that the railroad is the link with his past, for one thing, and with the city, for another. It is the link that he would not like to see broken. He also believes that the very quality in railroads that has endeared them to him all his life is their traditionalism. He also describes his first rail journey into Maine in the summer of 1905 and the thing that strikes him about the first rail trip.
