UN-ATOMIC:

National Train Day: Why slow travel may be better for families : Trains offer a link to the days of slower travel, personal service and enjoying the trip as well as the destination. National Train Day on May 10 offers families a chance to celebrate train travel and its simple pleasures. (Susan Sachs Lipman,  May 10, 2014, CS Monitor)

Sunset Limited. Hiawatha. Empire Builder. Super Chief. I can't hear the names of the great American train lines without finding myself completely smitten. The Romance of the Rails has gotten to me pretty much every time I've taken a train, even a lowly commuter one.

Annually, May 10 is National Train Day, and hundreds of cities and towns across the US are celebrating with events, entertainment, and exhibits at train stations and other locations.
