evening commute

I like this train so much that I never mind being held up by the lights.  It's the Rail Runner (a pun, for those of you who don't get it instantly, on the Road Runner, New Mexico's slightly absurd, scurrying state bird), which runs between Santa Fe and Belen, 35 miles south of Albuquerque, and was a terrific Bill Richardson project when he was Governor.  Truth be told, I've only taken it a few times (driving to Albuquerque is faster, and it runs at commuter times), but it's the prettiest of routes, and allows one to see old parts of pueblos that you don't see from the road.  Today, as you can see in the wing mirror, there was a spectacular stormy sky trying to catch up with the transportation.
