Couldn't resist stopping right in the middle of the tracks and shooting down it. Boy was is really snowing...... to the point that this looks B&W... it isn't !!!

I pass this track twice every day, and think it would be nice in the theme!

    Let me get this straight. You have never been a railroad employee. You are on a working railroad, single track, maybe stopped in your car. You are looking in only one direction. There was visibility of no more than 100 yards. There was snow which deadens sound. A train at 60mph travels around 30 yards in a second. Train crew get very distressed when they have to clean pieces of people off the front on their engines. Please remember this everyone!!
