Like the trains they take as subject, the poems in this collection carry the reader along a journey. The scenery changes, characters come and go. From Ken Silvestri's nostalgia for a train-rich childhood, Natasha Rabin's world travels, and Cat Weaver's excursion into literature (imagining Anna Karenina dressing for her fateful encounter with a locomotive) trains appear in a variety of functions and facets. Like an actual train journey, these poems leave us changed and enriched by the experience.
