Default Street Running Train Wakes Up Entire City! 7am Wakeup Call!

I always enjoy these street running videos. Street running is becoming more and more uncommon as towns and cities get fed up with trains rumbling down their streets. My favorite was the Union Pacific Tide Water Southern in Modesto Ca. They tore out the street running segment in 2001. Well, paved over it anyways. The UP installed two switches to bypass the 9th street trackage.

That engineer is laying on that horn like, well like someone has been complaining

My first apartment was this rathole garage apt behind a crazy little old lady's house, behind that was the tracks. That first month was hell, but pretty soon learned to go back to sleep after the locomotive passed, the cars would rock you back to sleep
