Some Folks Travel by Rail -- I Should Give it a Try

It's a Sort of Train in Naha Okinawa



That thing has been around for over 20 years and, I haven't tried it, yet !

It's not exactly, one of those bullet train things the mainland people ride.

But, I suppose, it beats walking or, taking a taxi.

The last time, I visited the big city, I saw the thing coming.

Waiting around outside a hotel, I got bored and, started looking for something to shoot.

There were no critters moving around so, I waited for the next train.

It's called a monorail.  I don't know if it really qualifies as a full fledged train.

Remember when trains had a locomotive and a caboose ?

Well, that's what you see here, without all the extra stuff.

The front car has 65 seats and, so does the back one. Plus, they have standing room.

So, there could be as many as 165 passengers up there.

 It got me wondering if, they have a slow season for train rides.

Maybe, a bunch of us could buy tickets at a discount price.

And, take our cameras on a train tour !
