To feed her hungry cubs. Bear spends hours standing in the stream that runs through the woods she is waiting for a fat fish to swim by then she plunges her head into the water and grabs the fish with her sharp teeth often it twists and flops cnot a slippery fish
Raccoon raised his head and smiled bear could see the mask on his eyes nope I didn’t see a thing
Bear shrugged her huge shoulders her stomach as she headed back to her den on the way she met fox she asked fox
The next morning bear got up before the sun rose she hurried thourhht the dark wood to get her bag of food but it was gone again just then raccoon wandered by

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE PASSENGER TRAIN?
AS the 1800s ended the 1900s began. More and more rairoad track were laid soon trains connected every part of our country THEY become a favorite way for people to travel by the late 1920s,20,000 passenger train carried and family visits in many towns
How did this happen? There is no simple answer however we can better undertand what happened by learning more about the history of passenger trains,
RIDING THROUGH THE 1930S AND WORLD WAR II
TRAINS PLAYED A MAJOR role during the Great Depression of the 1930s Millions of Americans were homeless and hungry they ate spoiled food they picked out of garbage cans they under newspapers or in cardboard boxes
THE railroad companies should have been able to build more then 4,000 new cars a year in 1946, they produced only 285 new coaches they nations passenger trains were run-down and not getting any better
FACING NEW COMPETITION
AS the railroads went downhill the American people took to the airplanes were no longer needed to fight the wer now they carried passengers and there was more bad news for the train industry
outomobile manufacturers began producing millions of care Detroit
In 1967, the
post office decided to transport first-class mail by plane instead of train united states
ALL of these things helped cause the near –death of passenger trains
THE Federal govermment wanted to save passenger train service in 1970 congress set up nationl railroad passenger corporation
Passenger trains provided a way for americcans to travel long before the car and the plane-and they still play an important role especially near major cities
