... alongside the main road, passing every town along the way (unfortunately though, we hadn’t gotten one with a steam engine – it was diesel). The general cabin got really packed as all sorts of locals packed on along the way, particularly students walking home from school. While the train was in motion, they would run up alongside it and jump on, packing into the small cabin to hitch a free ride uphill. All around us was ...
