    Post your Train shots!
    Taken by Mrs. Sandpatch with her cell phone at Seneca, SC is a train on an NS branchline. We were taking an evening walk and couldn't believe our good fortune. This was a nighttime train and was only recently changed to run in daylight. The 7127 is a 30 year old GP-60, as is the second unit.

    Curious what elephant style means. Would you explain it, please?

    Locally there is a heavily traveled railroad crossing used by commuters. When a CSX freight train rolls through, it takes forever.

Residents who live near it complain bitterly about all the noise while they are trying to sleep. It seems the township's noise ordinance doesn't apply in this type of situation.

    Elephant style means locomotives connected nose to tail. Like the elephants did when they paraded to the circus.

    Ah railroads & neighbors who dislike them. Yes trains can & do block crossings for a long time now. The trains have gotten to crazy lengths. I think CSX is one of the worst offenders. A train now can be more than twice as long as one just a few years ago. If they are going into a yard it can take seemingly forever to get the whole thing in there. That is a real problem.

    As far as noise goes, the way I see it is the rail yard was there long before the houses were. A rail yard is not a quiet place & there is no way to make it quiet short of shutting it down.

    Same with those people who move to farm country and complain about the smell of "country fresh air"

    I'll do that. There was a milepost to our left and I thought I should tell her to run that way so as to include it in the composition, but I then thought the better of it. There was little time to react and I felt she'd get a good shot anyway. I'm glad she grabbed it. I've tried taking cell phone shots of trains and am terrible at it.
