    by rail c. 1945 here as I drive around now.

    Last night's trip could have been done that way, since what we took were two large suitcases and my purse. Drive to nearest station, train down to Indianapolis, taxi to party, reverse.

    The only issue might have been that we might have had to get a hotel or find somewhere to hang out for about three hours in the early morning when we left the party, because I doubt there would have been a train at three am. But if we budget for gas now, there's no reason we couldn't have budgeted a hotel room near the station in a different reality.
