Inspiration for "BeltLine Fatigue"

There's this great line from the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. Frances our heroine has purchased a 300 year old villa and is in the process of restoring it. In the process, she has become fatigued and in need of some spiritual restoration of her own:

"Signora, between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains. They built a train track over these Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks even before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew some day, the train would come."

~ Martini to Frances, Under the Tuscan Sun
