Trains: The Soothing Sound Of Modern Times


The sometimes soothing sounds of trains in the distance signal you’re living in the modern age of human civilization. Within Great Britain of 1804, the first steam train whistle whaled onward into the dark cold night heralding the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. As smoke stacks rose and electricity illuminated the dark shadows, the diesel locomotive roared forth in 1912 joining its sisters of steam on the railways. It carried forth the familiar train horn most of us now hear as we lie half asleep with the window open on a warm Summer or Autumn night.🚂

The Rise Of Diesel Locomotives


The continued hypnotic clanging of train cars on the tracks mixed with the hum of the engine reassure you that civilization has tamed the wilds of once horrifying dangers. The serene whistle and chug of the steam engine vanished as the 20th century forged pavement ripe with automobiles. Cars whizzing about bow to the grand locomotives amid the chimes of the train crossing warning bells. In more urban settings some hear the distinctive sound of electric engines and muffled subways below ground. Sailing into the 21st century the metal clicky clack of the tracks gradually quiets as the electromagnetic Maglev levitates past with a whoosh still giving us the warning horn.🚄

The Maglev And Hyperloop

By the 22nd century, all goes quiet as electromagnetic Hyperloops hide and glide in underground vacuum tubes granting us insanely fast transport. Even more silence is had as virtually every vehicle on land, water, and air is powered by electricity.  The quiet of 18th century nights return to inform us that humankind made it thought the perilous growing pains of the Industrial Age. We slink into sweet slumber swimming through the digital age of AI automation. Delightful dreams propel us forward to the Imagination Age of creative endeavors. Although with a wary eye we examine the trust we grant smart machines when they take the reigns of work away from us…🤖
