Being on a road with a train coming towards you is the stuff of nightmares. Check out these weird places for trains to be:
Bitch, You’re a Bus? I’m a Train.
This street in LaGrange, KY, basically stops all bus-iness when this train comes rolling through.
This alternate view of the Lagrange train shows how if you're in one of these shops when it comes rolling through… you're not going anywhere for a while.
I hope you don't feel like running the gate, or you'll end up playing a game of chicken. With a train. On a bridge.
Trains Don’t Go “Around” Any Bouts

The town of Whittier has an entrance that everyone has to go through… even trains. If you're in a car, you don't want to find yourself going head-to-head with a train in a tunnel, so you might have to wait a long time for your turn. Next slide is a pic of inside the tunnel ->
I Couldn’t Think Of a Whittier Title
No, no, don't put on the brakes! I don't want to be in this tunnel any longer than absolutely necessary…
Silly train, running red lights is for cars!
Rear View Train
Apparently this is a normal thing in Tampa, to casually glance in your mirror to see a TRAIN just coming alongside you.
Four Lane Railway
Chestnut Road In Redwood City, California. Remember a time when trains were the backbone of our economy? Google maps remembers.
Thailand Street Market
These people are crazy, in order to save space they run their food market right up to the tracks, and manually raise and lower their canopies to let the trains pass. Being the engineer of the train must be nerve-wracking.
In Hanoi, these backyards are really just a space for trains! Makes for an interesting neighborhood conversation piece.
Head On: Apply Directly To The Train
Head On: Apply Directly To The Train. Turn lanes have never been more exciting.
Lake Charles, Louisiana
This is a different angle of the Head On image. These people choose not to sit in the turn lane, for good reason.
