No doubt that these luggage carts have faithfully served more than their fair share of trains and loyal passengers over the years. But there is more. These icons symbolize a time when passenger trains were the primary means for people to travel to see loved ones, travel for work, and travel for Christmas or vacation, or perhaps, travel to a ball game. Think about how these carts were filled to great heights just like the locomotives stood at great heights. They never failed us…morning, noon, or night! An era of the past filled with many stories and maybe some childhood memories. May 2011.
