I used maroon paint on the train cars because I remember watching many cars that color go by growing up in Memphis.
Whenever I visit my dad, I listen to the trains. This was the first time I've been there during the week in a long time. I commented on the number of trains and he told me that 21 trains go by each day. I love hearing the sound of the wheels clacking on the rails. My dad's house is situated between to cross streets so when the trains go by we get a really long train whistle warning of the train's passing. That sound makes me so happy. It's comforting to hear the train whistle. It's a sound of home.
