    Default Trains

    They really could of been the way of the future. Powered by a resource that will last for 500 years even without being energy efficent. They provided a stable resource and job output for many towns which without them just died. Hopefully once gas prices become plain ridiculus we will start using them again. And they look cool.

    They're limited in where they can go, though. You can't drive a train up a mountain just because you feel like it. It takes planning. I do like trains, though.

    It goes around in the spiral thing which does take time. Although nowdays we go more fancy technology so I think we can find a way around that. Although I wonder if magnetic trains are ok for long distance travel? They usually are only used for intercity travel.

    What I mean is that you can't suddenly go off in whatever direction you want in a train. You have to either follow the tracks or lay some new ones.

    Trains are my favorite mode of transportation. I once had to ride 6 hours in a train once. Very relaxing, and very convenient since it was a straight shot without stopping.

    Maybe Kirby thinks that trains will become like the Polar Express and be able to ride freely on ice and roller coaster-like tracks...

    Thats what we should do. Use catapillar/tank tracks and... I'll draw a diagram! THIS is the way of the future!

    I was on an Amtrak (?) before and it was a good trip. Wish there were more trains to more places.

    Who doesn't love trains? I like the older trains better than the new ones.

    Ive been on the Amtrack quite a few times, its pleasant sometimes, but it always gets held up, I almost never get were I wanna go in time. Also, bathrooms in trains suck, ive had some bad experiences with those.
