Train tracks. Symbolic. How the lives of people can move parallel to one another but never touch, yet they are connected by moments (the cross wood/slats) that forever link them. Train tracks are like memories they go forward and backwards but don’t deviate. A symbol of freedom for slaves (The Underground Railroad) and in several novels, (Fahrenheit 451 for example). Just a moment captured in time that will go on forever, much like the tracks so.
