I love trains and my nephew made my day during our boating trip on Saturday. A train was coming and he drove the boat so I could be underneath the railroad trestle as the train went over. My heart rushed as I saw the train coming, going over us, and finally leaving. It was a pretty noisy experience but one I'll never forget. The photos below show the stages of the train travel. Glad I was able to get some graffiti on some of the cars. Great experience!!! Now imagine the train blowing its horn and the chugging of the train. There were things falling from the train but I wasn't sure what it was. At first I thought pieces were falling on the roof of the pontoon but then realized that I wasn't under the roof. Little mind game with myself. Funny thing is as I write this, I can hear the train going through my town even though I'm about a half mile or so away. Choo choo choo, choo choo choo, choo choo choo. I hear the whistling blowing and it's calling my name.
Besides the love for trains and water, I love geometric shapes/patterns and architecture. The train photos have it all. What a wonderful day!
