For Rent: 24/7 Rail Traffic Included

Many railfans have probably wished they could have a house  next to a busy railroad line. It doesn’t get any better than being able to sit on your front porch or on the deck in the backyard and watch trains go by at all hours of the day or night.

Some have made that dream come true while others do little more than dream about it.

While railfanning early last November along the CSX mainline in Willard, I ran across this vacant house next to the tracks that is for rent. The house didn’t appear to be in the greatest of conditions nor is the neighborhood the best.

But you can count on CSX running train after train after train past your backyard. The shoes hanging from the wire at right are included at no extra charge.
