Random Photo: Choo-Choo Tracks

On our walk from the library to the arena where they were holding the circus, we crossed a bridge which is located right above some train tracks. I'm rather glad the train wasn't passing by. I'm sure it's speed would transfer some motion to the bridge. You don't see many trains go by very much, though I think many travel by in the early mornings to avoid clogging up traffic during the day. Waiting on a train can be a pain when it never seems to end.

  1. I think Adam you don't know much about trains???
    I have yet to be on an overpass here in Australia
    where the overpass moves due to the speed of a passing
    train. If that was to happen then the WPHS people would be
    onto it like a dog with a bone!
    Yes the construction company which built the overpass would be finding themselves in court and heavily fined, and with possible suspension!
    The same would apply in Europe, China and Japan where their trains hurtle along at speeds of over 300 kms an hour!
    It is far better for vehicular traffic that freight is carried on rails rather than trucks clogging roads and being hazards to ordinary day motorists.
    Be thankful for rail freight transportation and few minutes at a rail gate never hurt anyone.

    I forgot to mention that there is a lady who comes to the Harlequin Club and Bistro at the Sofitel Brisbane once a week with her friend, and this lady is the "SPITTING" imagine of your Aunt Denise. They come to have a little flutter on those horrible poker machines - $10 only but shrieks of delight are heard with their "wins" and then they have lunch.
    I am pleased to report that this lady is the most entertaining and friendly lady that you could ever meet.
    I guess you could say that even though she is the absolute "look-a-like", in temperament she is the complete opposite!!! ha ha
    I almost fell off my chair here at my desk when I saw the photo of your Aunt Denise.
    Cheers

  3. I've always been fascinated by trains. I relish being lulled to sleep by the lonely sound of a locomotive's whistle in the misty distance as I...excuse me, I came darn close to being all poetic and stuff.
