“I like trains. I like their rhythm, and I like the freedom of being suspended between two places, all anxieties of purpose taken care: for this moment I know where I am going.” ― Anna Funder, Stasiland
On February 5, 1883, the Southern Pacific Railroad completed its Sunset Route, a continuous rail line from New Orleans, Louisiana to Los Angeles, California. With the 137th anniversary of this occasion happening Wednesday, we were inspired to share a few of our favorite people and places in New Orleans and California and a bit of information on this nation-spanning American railroad.
