Brief Video Tour of La Grange, Kentucky
Most people don’t really believe me when I tell them that yes the trains really do go right down the middle of the street in my hometown of La Grange, KY. They always say that I have to be kidding, there is no way they would allow that. Well, not sure who “they” are, but here is the proof that yes, the trains really do run down the middle of the street in La Grange.
It has been going down the middle of town for years, from what I remember due to the trolley tracks of years ago, and now the trains take the same route. Not sure if that is correct, but that is what I have always been told.
Growing up, especially as a teen, I have no idea how many hours I have sat there twiddling my thumbs waiting on the train to get through town. It is one of those situations, that if you are caught, you will be there for a long while. Usually a train is well over 100 cars, and due to the fact that they do go through La Grange, they move very slowly.
Anyway, I still think that it is pretty cool that they do it, and where else would you ever get such a close-up view of these monsters. When you are up close, they are simply HUGE! It is always a pretty impressive site to see.
