What about when the gates fail to activate? I've witnessed that too many times from the headend of a train at 79MPH, gates getting down very slow or not even coming down at all.

Not sure of the grade or speed there, but light power moves don't make much noise at all either going up or downhill.

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Then Troy gets run over I suppose, they would still be blowing the horn before they get to the crossing, still enough warning.

Sharp curve equals noisy flanges, regardless if it's a light power move or not.

Things trains in the mountains of WV / VA do not do:

1. Sneak up on you.

Um, Max... based on this post, and the earlier one that included a terrible miscount... I'm wondering if you missed the day in sixth grade when they separated the boys from the girls and everyone got to see a movie called "What's Happening to Me?"

Yeah, Yeah... I know all about that... but he was a woman and kept his womanly plumbing.

You got to lighten up, Dude. Can't you tell I was busting your ball [sic]?

You can take a chevette and throw a LT/LS1 v8 in it, but it's not magically a corvette.

I just complimented Max. That's unlikely to cause an exciting response.

You know Charles, we had a discussion about three years ago about that sick feeling you get when you walk in on.........

Congrats, you have managed to dredge up yet another repressed memory that took thousands of dollars of therapy to "deal with."
