That's mighty close, Mary Moon. Good morning to you.
I see it. I happen to be on a train right at this moment!
I see it, too. I sort of wish I was on it.
Wow, that is in your backyard. I have always lived near trains, even now here in the country there's a line that runs past the far end of my road. I'm so used to the sound of trains that I don't usually hear them. But I think that would be a little too close.
Your yard is beautiful. Is it too close for comfort?
I grew up in a house so close to train tracks that my bed would shake when it went by. At first, it drove us crazy but after awhile, it was soothing. I love trains!
Nancy- It sure is close. If it fell over, it would take the chicken coop with it I think.Angella- Our trains are always freight which makes me so sad. I would love to wave at the passengers. Where are you going? Elizabeth- You'd have to be a hobo. Or an engineer. They don't even have cabooses any more. Did you know that?Ellen Abbott- We are used to it but if we're on the phone when the train goes by, we do have to say, "Hold on."Ms. Vesuvius- Not unless I think about toxic chemical spills. heartinhand- This whole house shakes when the train goes by. And yet, after 154 years of such shaking, the house is still fairly sound.
That is close. My aunt used to have a house with tracks that close and I kind of loved it. I don't know whether I would love it now though.
I have loved the sound of trains for a long time. And that whistle--I think that I could have been a hobo or midnight rambler.
Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
