    Given the fact that you're still here, we can safely assume you didn't catch it! :allteeth:

    Must be Gary!!! In the first shot I'm just about even with crossing guard, I heard it start dinging, turned toward it, then immediately turned back, and saw the train coming around the corner. I got up moved off the track, and it was on me!!! I didn't think old freight trains ran that fast!

    Actually more like a Cheetah able to run really fast for short distance. We did some intermodal back when. It took 2 weeks to get a car moved from Atlanta to Birmingham. It took two hrs moving and the rest of the time on a siding waiting to be hooked up or unhooked.

    I try to be a man of my word, so here is the sign from the spot I was talking about. As I said earlier in this thread, Norfolk Southern leases the tracks now. The previous company was Canadian Pacific ( I do believe ), and the sign was a little different.

    @Dean_Gretsch no signs here. People walk the tracks, hunt along, etc. Fenced rail yards are a different story.

    This stretch of track runs between the Susquehanna River and a ridgeline of hills eventually passing through a state correctional facility property a couple miles away. The SCR probably has something to do with this sign, but you'd think it would be mentioned?
