Time to consult the freight train schedule

Because, unbelievably, I have just run into another train just as I got to the tracks. At the same intersection as yesterday! Thankfully this one was short. Who knew so many freight trains were still in operation? Not I. Advertisements


I just waited 7 minutes for what must be the world’s longest train to pass. I have never witnessed a train that long. It was so long that I bet it was blocking every train crossing in Berkeley and Emeryville simultaneously.
