Today I went on a wild train chase. With rumors of train access coming to State College I was sent on an adventure to track down the passenger train that travels from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, making a slight journey through Centre County. I ventured out to a bridge with a great vantage point of the tracks, but with with fast moving traffic was unsafe. As I circled across the bridge I spotted a truck along the tree line of the tracks. I joined the truck, who had two anxious youngsters with their grandpa counting the train cars of anything that passed. They knew when to expect the train I wanted and helped to assure me I hadn’t missed it yet. The afternoon light was perfect and as the grandpa shared train stories the youngsters counted the 7 cars on the train I wanted.
