Chicago & Alton 1879 Railroad Depot II


I think I would rather take a train over a stage coach any day.  Can you image riding even 10 miles in a stage coach and I'm sure many endured much greater distance.

This coach looks marvelous :)

I think you would need quite a bit of padding and even then it would be difficult.

It's not for me! Imagine doing it in this heat.

Just imagine travelling in that thing!

I certainly can't imagine it. Glad we have a more modern approach to travel, including air conditioning!

I recently read a book recently a book that included some vivid descriptions of travel in the early 19th century. There is nothing appealing about it. WSe have it pretty good today.
