You don't need to explain how it works, I moved here from Oakland, remember?

I miss trains.  The Subway, the EL, BART, the Metro, the Underground.  I miss the smoggy light on the tracks before sunset, the fluttering reflection of the skyline in the windows of a train going by.  I miss the press of bodies, the beauty and elegant simplicity of train maps.  When I get to the platform everything snaps into place.  It's the world at street level that I have a hard time with.  Skimming over, or under, it all just passes by.
