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
Trains Don't Go "Around" Any Bouts

This train between two cities, Chur and Arosa in Germany, simply doesn't care about your roundabout. It's hard to see, but the train tracks run right through the middle of a roundabout. Try driving in circles now!

Whittier, Alaska
Whittier, Alaska

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 ->

No, no, don't put on the brakes! I don't want to be in this tunnel any longer than absolutely necessary...

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.

Hanoi

In Hanoi, these backyards are really just a space for trains! Makes for an interesting neighborhood conversation piece.

This is a different angle of the Head On image. These people choose not to sit in the turn lane, for good reason.
