Note to Self, vol. XXIX

When you decide on a whim to stop photographing a bridge under construction to beat feet to photograph a train approaching a crossing, remember that trains not only blow their whistles by the whistle post preceding the crossing, but also at the crossing.

I.e., it is super. fucking. LOUD. And sounds like a horn rather than a whistle.

So, you know, if you intentionally set out to photograph trains at crossings in future, bring serious ear protection!
