American Freight

Trains are becoming more scarce then they once were. They are a great symbol to Americas great history. This freight train is one of the life lines for American cultural. Without this we would not get as many goods as we do, and people would not be able to travel on passenger trains and be able to enjoy the beauty of the country.
