Great image and PP!
I used to know a house that was about as close.
The lady who lived there had been in a train accident as a child. She lost an arm and a leg.
Still lived so close to the tracks. Imagine that.
Wonderful shot, Alan! The clarity is such that it could be two photos stitched together. Wonderful lights, especially in the house railings. Great feeling of motion.
The proximity is scary. I once lived in a parsonage that was about 50 feet from a N&W mainline... coal hauling out of Kentucky for northern Ohio and Detroit. The noise was deafening when trains went through. The whole house shook and it felt like an earthquake every time. I was glad to move away!
So, how long did you have to wait for the train to pass by?
