You could come hang out at my place for a bit Poppy. We have tracks that run perpendicular with one side of our property, there are at least 2 trains a day. Mine don't even bother to raise their heads when they pass anymore. When I was younger the big fun was to race the trains on our horses ;)
It was always a benefit to have, the closest show grounds to us has an amtrak line running through it. There were always a handful of horses freaking out. Made me thankful for the trains even though I get really tired of hearing them honk, the road intersection is at the end of my drive...that gets kind of old.
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
