Where's a Train When You Need One?

I have to attend a board meeting in Flagstaff today for a community group. The meeting will be a two to three hour session followed by my return to Phoenix. My day will go from desert to pines and back. The meeting will be held in a facility that does not permit teleconferencing.

Where is a train when you need one?

On a train, I could make notes on the meeting, finish reading Seth Godin's Linchpin, wrap up a book draft, and stare out the window. Isn't it odd that at one point many of us began to think of trains as old fashioned? When I look at my schedule today, a train would be a cutting-edge productivity tool.
