(Arguably, no pipeline? OK, we'll just carry this stuff down the rocky hillside, next to the curves of the river...)

...and excess rolling stock is parked all over the country including the Adirondacks and on a couple rail lines near here. On the same issue, they're compressing gas and trucking it over the road into NYS because the pipelines are being held up. I'm not a big fossil fuel guy but a rational distribution plan would be preferable.

I never thought of that dep't: In 1857, before time zones were invented, every town had its own time.

(Not in Britain, where a more civilized nation had Greenwich posting an agreed-upon time for everyone by 1852...)

It was the railroads that forced a common time to happen. Suddenly there was a need for everyone to understand the same time. The agreed-upon time used to be called "Railroad Time". But people agreed to call it Standard Time. And we still do.

It's interesting which are the principle cities in the US, Toronto's inclusion implies a pretty porous border. With the trains running they probably didn't mess around with border checks.

Hell, in my time, driving through the border meant a 30 second stop to hear welcome to Canada.

When we crossed about a hundred years ago, the guy said "Ya got any guns, eh?"

We said "Uhh--"

He said "Welcome to Canadia, eh."

It wasn't that strict crossing back.
