The Last Train

As fast as the last train to Clarksville left the station, the railroad company pulled up the rails, ripped up the ties, and collected the rocks from the rail bed.
The rocks from the rail bed were crushed and used in the cement that ended up being used in the highway to Clarksville.
The rails were reshaped into guard rails for the highway.
The ties were cut into planks for the buildings in the rest areas.
When the highway was finished, we drove to Clarksville to visit the train museum.
“Wouldn’t you rather drive to the moon?” asked Michael Nesmith.
