I like these photos-I grew up in Kamloops, B.C. and lived at the top of town, the train ran through below us and in the summer we'd hear their whistles clear and loud, I loved it. Here if the wind blows in the right direction we get the rumble of the trains passing through our little village.
when i was a teen, we moved from farm to 'town' and lived near the train tracks. i came to love that sound, too.
I love trains, but most of the tracks in this area have been pulled and converted to walking or riding trails.
i love trains and i adore the sound of a train whistle!! it just sounds like comfort!!
The sound of a train whistle is one of my favorite sounds ever! When my children were young we found a book at the library that explained what each whistle was for - the long-long-short-long, etc. Wish I could remember now the meanings - maybe I'll look that up on the Internet!
My goodness me, how lovely. This is one thing I really love when we visit the States. I miss that sight and sound so much. Happy Days!
Nice photos! I think every little boy or girl is fascinated by trains, I know I was....And I love these freight trains too, even now!....they seem to last forever trundling along across the country. It's a hypnotic sound. Thanks for sharing!
Until we moved here, I lived somewhere near train tracks and miss the gentle rocking sound of the train/tracks.
Thanks for dropping by...
