Transportation Facts

I am riding on a train for about 100 miles, we have already traveled about 15 miles so far. It is made of steel,metal and wood. This train is powered by coal. The best thing about this form of transportation is that it takes no effort to get where I'm going, I receive plenty of food on the train and it is pretty cozy on here. The worst thing about riding on here is the smell of the coal and that it is a bit crowded. But I am pretty pleased with my choose of transportation.
