I hear that train a-comin’.

Bon voyage to Mr. Living Small, who departs for Los Angeles via Amtrak this morning. It’s a 36-hour train trip, folks — that’s a lot of sustained silent reading — but he chose rails over airways for their lower environmental impact. Want some figures? Flit on over to this chart devised by the Sightline Institute (go, Seattle treehuggers!) on the subject of CO2 emissions according to transit type.
Have you ever long-hauled it on the railroad? How far did you go?
(And how late did you arrive?)
