My heart is warm with the friends I make,

And better friends I’ll not be knowing;

Yet there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take,

No matter where it’s going.

Edna St. Vincent Millay, Travel

French Impressionist super star Claude Monet (1840-1926) was fascinated with trains, particularly the challenge of capturing the changing visual effects of smoke, whether in a Parisian station or the countryside as depicted above.
