I grew up in this town. I remember the trains coming through at all hours. They never bothered me. I remember some of my braver friends "hopping" the train. Riding the side of the cars to another point in town. The trains go very slow down the middle of Main Street. It made driving interesting if you were caught on Main when the train came. You had to stop. I grew up on River Street. Graduated clas of 78 BAHS

Yes, this is great.. Very unique situation for the town. I love the sound of the passing train, very nostalgic and romantic.
