Closely Watched Trains

I got caught at a railroad crossing yesterday while a very long cargo train passed. I realized this is something that almost never happens in New England but frequently occurs here in the Midwest. Once on a trip down to Columbia, MO I swear we were on a main highway with the speed limit around 60 and there was a railroad crossing bisecting it. Insane.

Same track but I was on Scott Blvd over by Fareway.

We saw one in Wyoming carrying coal that must have been 5 miles long. I can't remember the last time I saw any train here in CT
