Everyone seems to love #5 the most and it almost got overlooked. My first time through the shots I completely didn't even see it. Glad I looked back through a second time. :) Thanks!

I'm liking #4 most, though I like all of them. Not a bad one in the bunch.

Cool shots, nice B&W conversions.

The one with the gate though...maybe it only happens in Plymouth, but the gates seem to go down an awful lot for ghost trains. That might be a bad situation.

Thanks mlav and photoguy. And no, mlav, I've lived in Royal Oak for the bulk of 31 years and never seen a ghost train trip the gates. I'll keep an eye out though  :p

Great shots, brings back some good memories. I just hope he understands the part about jumping off the tracks when he hears/feels a rumbling, ;).

The pictures are great; the message in them is a concern...railroad tracks can be dangerous places to be:

Great shots! Like them all! It's a good thing there's not as many trains rolling through there like there used to be years ago.:)

Hmmm, I'm a bit surprised that so many people see the potential concern in these shots (it was brought up in another thread). They've all come from US folk as well, which makes me wonder about mindset. Not to fly all the way off topic, but just to throw it out there to avoid future concerns with it... he's my son. He KNOWS trains are dangerous (and is pretty smart about tools and various implements and which ones are safe for him as a child and which are not). I had an assisstant (my mother) there JUST outside of the frame at any given time. While he loves trains, the noise they make alone scares him to death. But he still loves watching them. He covers his ears and shakes but gets furious if you try to get him so far away he can't see the train.

At any rate, part of your job as a parent is to instill into your child what is dangerous and what is not. I have guns, too. He will probably be firing them by the time he's 4. Guns are as or more dangerous. But only if you do not have the respect for them that they deserve. Kids in rural areas grow up firing weapons early on. They aren't the ones that "accidentally" shoot their younger sibling a couple years later. It's all about teaching children, not fearing for them all the time.
