National Train Day

It's National Train Day! A day to celebrate trains, because in America very few people take them and they're considered something of a novelty.

People came and took pictures of Tampa's train station, named "Union Station":

It's rather modest, but the clock there is pretty:

The crowd consisted of mainly older people, but also parents with young children:

The biggest draw seemed to be the model trains:

Out back, they offered a tour of a passenger train. A lone singer belted out Sinatra-style tunes and people ate food from food trucks. The audience didn't seem enthusiastic about the food, as if it were a little too exotic for their pallets:
