I think trains are cool. I don't know a whole lot about them, but I like them.
I find rail networks to be fascinating.
I used to have an HO train set as a kid. I thought about getting back into model railroading.
My dad belongs to a larger scale (the kind you can sit on) model train club.

Trains jut fascinate me. The history, the size and the noise. I will go to the train station and watch trains for 4-6 hours and stay completley content. I also enjoy model trains as well;Ho scale in particular. I guess it would be my special interest. My interest though, have nver changed.

I rode on a train once. One of the guys who worked there decided to regale me and my other female friend with all sorts of train facts. He got really creepy.

All my life. Trains are the one loud thing in this world that just never seem to bother me. :)

I do like hearing the whistle of a freight train in the night and hearing the faint sound of it's passing.

I love watching trains and riding on them. There's also something romantic about them. I just wish the U.S. had better rail systems.
