Travellers of the great age…

Commuter, Grand Central Station #4

Travelling in this day and age has become so commonplace we barely take the time to look up. But there was a time when travelling was an undertaking not made lightly, and normally was a more celebrated endeavour which gave way to the Golden Age of Trains. Train hubs were built as small towns, with all the shops and amenities that wayfaring travellers would find both useful and entertaining, making a person’s trip more enjoyable.

Though travelling today is more tech-driven with GPS, WiFi, Internet and such technologies at our disposal, there are still so many bastions which harken back to a time when  travelling was an adventure to embrace and enjoy, and time meant more than getting from A to B. Those were days where your next adventure was just a train ticket away.
