We live on the wrong side of the railroad tracks. When you first come to my town, the train seem picturesque. But, get caught by it twice, and you'll probably be over that. My town has at least three trains go through it each day. And, because it is going straight through town, it has to slow down to do so. It usually takes anywhere from 5 minutes to 10 minutes to go through town. And, if you stay on the main road, the cars can line up 20 deep. After the train goes by, you have to wait your turn through two four way stops. I have, for the most part, avoided the train in recent months because I can go down the road that runs parallel to the track to get where I want to go. However, if I want to get on the highway in town, or if I want to go to the 'commercial' district of my town, I have to go over the railroad tracks. The pictures were taken Wednesday, as I was waiting to get past the train to go to a doctors appointment. I love my town, and I'm sure the train is a great thing for tourists. But, I could seriously do without it. There is a tiny Irish pub that the boys and I frequent. Whenever we're sitting in it and the train goes by, the boys always comment something to this effect, "I'm glad we're not trying to go somewhere!"
