We live close to the train tracks. We run parallel to them, two streets away. No passenger trains here though, purely coal trains – 24/7. Full ones coming in and empties going back out up the valley, as far as the eye can see.
I’m awake a lot through the night and now that it’s summer I have the window open and I often lie there and listen to all the noises the trains make. I quite like train noises.
I walk over the bridge at least four times a day and I always have a look and see what’s happening and take photo’s. That’s the TAFE I go to everyday there in the background, those brick buildings.
