Wow that 2nd train with 236 cars in unreal. I understand the logisitcs of
Precision railroading, but how about these small communities that have to
deal with traffic backups; or medical emergencies, etc.
I lived in Waycross 15 years ago, before the big CSX reroute of mid-western
bound trains. Great times for me, but not for all the crossings blocked from
Plant Ave; Isabella St and all through Waycross. These were not 236 cars long,
but on average at least 100. The trains were frequent, and I loved the sound
of trains blowing for all those crossings even 5 miles away - day and night.
We wonder why people take chances to beat the train at a crossing.
