Train Traveling

I love trains of all types!  Usually I’m in airplanes but, when I can, I’ll take the train!  I can show up 10 minutes before the train leaves.  I can stand up and walk around while it’s moving.  I can spread out in the cafe car and work without worrying about knocking elbows with someone sitting beside me while I type!

I even enjoy the shuttle trains one finds at airports, whether it’s the train with the cool enclosed spaces at Orlando International or the above ground AirTrain at Newark Liberty Airport.  On those rare occasions when I’m not on the road and can actually visit my DC office, I take the Marc Train in to Union Station and then grab the DC Metro to my stop.

Whether moving by plane, train, or automobile, my Powerocks portable charger gives me the peace of mind to know I will always have power to take photos of the interesting train or station shots I see!
