Double Trained

Every morning, around 7:20 or so, I start listening for the freight train on this line (Baltimore & Ohio). Sometimes it's a little early, sometimes it's a little late, but often I get stopped. These trains usually fly, so I don't have to wait long, but it's personal to me to get across this crossing before I get stopped. On the way home tonight, I got stopped by this bad boy.

While the train was passing, another came from the other direction. While this isn't unusual, it was fun to see both trains at the same time.

These Bradford pear trees began opening their flowers on Tuesday, and fully opened today. This is the fire house right across from my office in Auburn.

The birds are really beginning to sing loudly in the mornings. Spring is good!

Happy riding!

Two trains at once. That's half the stop time for the most cars. Cool!

I love trains so much that if I see one coming and I can beat it I stop anyway just to watch and feel it go by. Do you know that engineers still wave at us kids?
Trains and dirigibles are the best of public transportation. They are at the top of my list. I have yet to go in a dirigible except in my imagination.

Double train would mean the effort in transportation if doubled too. Then things will be faster and easier.
