    • I thought that the small inter-city railroads got torn up too. (Or were they just casualties once everyone had had to buy a car?)

      I know it was about the same era, because my mother has memories of taking the train to visit her grandmother when she was young. It’s amazing to me, because I know that money was tight when she was a kid, so to think that she routinely got what is now such a luxury blows my mind. (This is also how I know it was before the trains disappeared, and not modern train service.)
