Welcome to Kyle... RRXing
If you've ever been to Kyle.. you've done this... waited for a train.
Up until a few months ago, when a train went through town it cut the west side of the city from the east side. Nobody was going in or out from IH-35 for a few minutes (a real pain for emergencies). Plus, my wife works in San Marcos, TX (10 minutes south) and if she gets caught by a train in San Marcos on the way home... she'll be caught by the same train in Kyle 10 minutes later.. kind of funny the first 10 times.... or if you're not in the car.
Well.. I finally had my camera close to me when a train passed. This was an AmTrack passenger train so it was only about 6 cars long and it travelled at about 45mph so I waited for all of 20 seconds. Usually they are cargo trains that are a mile long and go about 20mph.
If you're in the area... come on by The Lucky Cup tonight for a Community Happy Hour.
