Closest RR to you?
Author: RailDawg

What is the RR closest to you? How far are the tracks from your home?

For me it's the UPRR on the Overland and it's about 600' from the front door.

Well from work, the BNSF Bakersfield sub main line bisects the site and have to cross tracks multiple times daily on private grade crossing ( with gates no less!).

The Metrolink Coastline. Former UP tracks. Switches back to UP about a mile down track from me.
The line runs behind my house, So about 50' from property line. If I were a good thrower
I could hit a train from my chair here. Or easily off my back porch. I miss all the SP freights
that went by here when I first moved it.It was grand. GP35s SD45s and Tunnel Motors abounded.

Not mine but, in Annetta, Tx on the UP (former T&P) about 60 ft from rear door.  And they have a porch.  Trains speed limit is 50 MPH there.

The line between Hereford & Abergavenny is about a 1/4 of a mile away. I can hear the southbounds taking a run for the hill but you have to be looking in the right place from the upstairs front bedroom window to spot them.
