I get it! I feel the same way about old trains. When I was a little girl my grandparents lived a block away from the train tracks in St. Paul, MN. I would spend hours sitting there watching trains go by. And the grabbing of the mail bag in Stillwater, MN? Heaven!

My next goal is a trip on a narrow gauge train. Be still my beating heart...

I was brought up in an orphanage and whenever the trains went by the entire building would shake. Eventually (many years after I departed) the building was torn down because it was beginning to become unsafe. In fact a huge grandfather wall-clock fell off the wall and down the staircase after a long freight train passed by. The tracks were about 50 feet from the building and went between us and the river. We used to count the cars from the school yard and many times the count exceeded 100..and that was in the days of the old big black steam engines...before the diesels.
A bit about the orphanage can be found here (no trains though)
