Have you ever cursed or heard a parent do it when approaching a railroad crossing? Sure they can slow you up from getting to your destinations. I can tell you that it never really bothers me. Every since I was a child I have been fascinated with trains. We lived near a railroad track and I would stand in the window watching it do its business.
Not only that, but I owned a couple model train sets as well. Santa knew exactly what to get me. Best of all, my grandma never cursed about the train. She knew I loved to see it! It was never a problem for her to go out of the way to take me by the train station just to look on her way home.
These days those train sets in the floor have been replaced with cameras. Those cameras have allowed me to capture images of full scale trains that I still love to see at crossings. Some things never change.
