What is it about the unique form of travel this tunnel represents that invokes such good vibes? Is it that someone else is doing the driving? That the passenger next to you may surprise you with uplifting conversation? Or is it the view? I’m not describing an app-based ride. Go farther back in our transportation history. I’m talking Iron Horses!
.
Today, of course, the train is not mentioned in horsepower or even “high-speed.” Its future may lie in the maglev-powered transportation concept (think 800 miles per hour!)
.
But for those who passed through this Wilkes Street Tunnel in the early 1850s en route to the Potomac River their time was not spent in the pursuit of leisure at a high rate of speed. It was all work on this part of the Orange & Alexandria (O&R) Railroad. During the Civil War, the Union seized control of the railways in Alexandria, including the O&R. A steady flow of military trains passed through the Wilkes Street Tunnel on their way to and from the wharves along the Potomac.
.
It is one of two 19th century railroad structures remaining in the city. (Hooff’s Run Bridge is the other) The tracks are long gone, but the tunnel has been preserved and is now part of a trail for runners and bicyclists.
.
Is that the end of the story? No way! I’m just getting to the exciting part!!
.
Why this train-related photo/narrative? To tell you about an opportunity from @amtrak!

🐥 Here is a rough itenary of our trip and how far of a trek the journey from Guatemala to the U.S. is for someone who makes it to the U.S. border only to be deported back to Guatemala. +8,000 kilometers= +5000 miles!
🏍 For a migrant this journey could take months, we are hoping to hop on the train this morning and reach the northern border in under two weeks. Wish us luck! #whereareyounow

Dear Darius,

This entire weekend away with you in Vancouver, BC has been amazing! I've always wanted to travel by train. 🚂 We visited the best spots and had the most incredible food and drinks.🥃🍸🍳🍤🍫 All while exploring the city and rooting for sooo many sports together!! 😂😁🏒🥊👍🏻 Dallas Stars won, Seahawks were victorious, all the bartenders seemed hated me. 😂 Cheers to the things we can both remember (and to those we can't) ... and room service. 😉👍🏻🥃🍹
Thank you for a weekend full of memories.

Love you, 💋💕
Brit

🇨🇦 Do you like old movies?
.
I spent weeks, months trying to remember to take a picture of this door. This steampunk Chaplin caught my attention the first time I saw it because I love his movies. Original slapstick was so captivating, which is probably why I like Jackie Chan movies so much.

🇧🇷 Você gosta de filmes antigos?

Passei semanas, mesed tentando lembrar de tirar foto dessa porta. Esse Chaplin steampunk me chamou desde que vi pela primeira vez já que adoro os filmes dele. Trapalhadas antigas eram tão mais interessantes, com pouco ou nenhum efeito, e deve ser por isso que gosto dos filmes do Jackie Chan.

This boy has been begging to go ride a train and after the rough week he had with HFM (and all that rain!), mama had to make it happen. We rode twice, checked out the animals and butterflies, played with dinosaurs and did some important dump truck stuff before leaving. This goes down in the books as one of our best days. Wish it didn’t have to end! 💗

Every morning, I walk a little over a half mile from the Ogilvie Metra station to the Clark/Lake Brown Line to Kimball el stop and take it to Diversey, then walk about a mile from there to work. After work, I take the Brown Line to the Loop and get off at Washington/Wells. From there, it’s only 0.3 of a mile walk back to the train station. I’m almost at 12k steps today and usually average about 15k steps a day!!! 😜 #traincommuter #chicago #cta #ridingthetrain
