No Destination: Railroad in La Grange

Thirty trains travel each day down La Grange's Main Street
For those of you who read Monday's post, you were probably wondering why I didn't mention the crazy railroad that goes down Main Street in La Grange. If you looked closely at the picture, you noticed what I am talking about.

With parking on both sides of Main Street, there is no "wiggle room" when the CSX train comes barreling down at a maximum 10 mph. Nate tells the tale of a woman who frantically called her husband to tell him she had been in a car accident. Asked what happened, she told her spouse that she had run into a train. Only in La Grange.

Embedded below is a YouTube video (not mine) of a train coming down Main Street La Grange:

I can assure you that it is a very strange feeling to walk right up to a moving train.
