Cozy Railway-Themed Coffee Spots

14 Jan

In the U.S.A., trains date back to the old west and cowboy era, However, during these modern times, wagon trains and railway have inspired many innovations about trails and railways. We can attribute these makeovers to: time, technology and trends. Mass transportation has transitioned from horsepower, locomotion to being propelled by various modern energy sources. Passengers, waiters, cooks, porters and conductors, have all been impacted and/or displaced.

What are some of the changes that have taken place? Railways and trains are being modified into unique structures. Some of the most popular modifications have been stationary museums. Others are used solely for public accommodations. And many are utilized in full or part, for transportation.

As people, places and needs for accommodations keep transitioning, more railway concepts are coming forth. Keep in mind that whichever innovative train adventure you choose to journey, it will be fun, nostalgic and very scenic.

….AOC Commentary

Railroads have been an integral part of our country’s history, connecting east to west, shipping supply to demand, and connecting farm to hungry city table. It’s a rich history tied to – and driving – major events, and it’s a history worth seeing, smelling and feeling up close. The following museums let visitors hear the steam-whistle blow, smell the grease on the axels and step back in time. source

      There will be soon. I think it has just started. Especially after the last 3 decades of metrolinks and railings… they found a way not to dispose of old cargo carriers. Good thing too. Soon this concept will be everywhere.

      This certainly is a sparky 💡 idea. Once trains were the big travel commuters. Preservation of box cars and trains, is a great way to relish special times through the accommodations of historical, recycled treasures of the past.

      I keep hoping that we will revive passenger railroads in more parts of the US where they were the first method of transport. It would be so much better for our environment.

    What better catering train-ing could there be?
    I have experienced steam train travel in South Africa when it was a main means of overland transport, and the dining car was a delight. Superb food and service with sights constantly changing, an ongoing slight rocking movement, and the sound of wheels going clacketty-clack!

      Sounds like a time most enjoyable. It is so interesting the ideas and collaborations have impacted a repeat facade of rail history. And too, I am delighted that the enjoyable rail experiences that you have described, comes even more alive with the onset in our (AOC’s) share.

      And these adventures were and still are more exciting than taking a plane. How nice it is to enjoy travel, bnb at ground level. The train stations were big and exciting then. The cozy-railway themed box cars etc. renovations are a nice comeback. ❤
