Hi Diane .Any BiG Trains in your area Tony UK
Hi, Tony...well, just regular-sized trains, as far as I know. :) Thanks for stopping by from the UK!
"Regular-sized trains" in Klamath Falls are BIG Trains in the UK.
Really? Do you mean in car size or total length of the average train?
I'm joking really Diane. Isn't everything in America bigger? Really though, you do have much longer trains there. A lot of Goods trains. UK and Ireland tend to use trucks when it comes to hauling goods. Mainly due to the size on the countries. Smaller, therefore more economical to deliver door to door by truck.
:D Yes, I think everything is bigger. I once measured a 2 mile (3.2 km) train on Google Earth, somewhere in the Southeast. My office is located next to the tracks you see above, and there are often trains that seem at least a mile long, mostly hauling lumber and other building materials. My office is moving, so I'm sad to say goodbye to the excitement and view of the trains! : (
Oh! You'll miss the trains then. :( I've seen trains in England and they're usually 8 carriages long plus the engine. In Ireland they can be from 2 to 8 but these are a new type that has the drivers compartment in the first carriage. The longest in Ireland will haul lumber too or cement but they could have just 12 carriages, so, we're not really 'at the races' when it comes to American trains! Best of luck with the move, and I hope the view from your new office window will help break the monotony of the day. ;)
I'll miss them very much! Oh my, you do have tiny trains. :o :D
My new view will consist of the County Jail and the Juvenile Detention Center. Ugh!!! Hardly an upgrade, eh?
