Train "noise" is often nice, as it is another sign that we are out adventuring, always a good thing.

Train noise then Ruskin, Florida comes too mind! I swear, early morning, like 3 AM, they see a RV park and then they really lay on the horn!

Since full timing a few years ago, it seems like every campground we stay at has tracks nearby.

We are heavy sleepers, so it doesn't bother us.
My thoughts, exactly.

That's it. I found a video and figured how to post. Enjoy.

Try staying at the St Johnsville NY
St. Johnsville, NY, United States - Google Maps

The Buffalo New York City (I am lead to believe) tracks run right at the edge of camp. Follow to the east and count the trains along the views. ISTR that the trains run about every 20 minutes and just about 24/7.

We loved it.

Pretty much all the CGs in the Columbia Gorge, on both the Oregon and Washington side, are next to train tracks. The trick is to not stay at one that's next to where they blow their horns. The worst, IMO, is the KOA at Cascade Locks. All that said, I love the sound of trains, especially working uphill, just not their horns close by!

The page size changes going from post 46 to 47. Maybe Flagship got some CaptMorgan spilled on him?

Darn! I was going to go get another drink to see if the pages changed.

I think I missed my train.

I'm having the same big/small problems with this page- it started right after Palehorse finally got his above-mentioned video to upload using the site's brand-new video upload feature...

I don't know if he's the first to try it or not, but since I'm not having this problem with any other pages here I wondered if there could be a connection.
