One windy autumn Saturday, my husband, sister and I went for a walk downtown. A few minutes into the walk, a train could be heard in the distance, so we raced over to the tracks in front of a local coffee shop to watch it go by.
We waited and waited, but the train didn’t seem to be coming. We grew tired of the odd looks the people at the coffee shop were giving us as we stood in the parking lot staring at the train tracks, so we decided to forget the train and continue our walk.
We had barely walked one block before the train’s horn sounded again, and so close! We ran back to the coffee shop parking lot to get an up close glimpse of the train.
After we finished our walk and were getting in the car, we could hear another train on the way! We drove past it on the way back home.
We even crossed under it!
I love spotting the train as it travels through the city.
