8 Railroad Crossing Signal Lights by dmrams

8 Railroad Crossing Signal Lights

These signal lights are down the street from my house and every night and early in the morning I can hear the train's whistle...I used to wake up from the blaring, but now I sleep right through it.
Isn't it funny how we become accustomed to things like this? Good choice for #8.

Interesting thoughts about how things at first are annoying...but then we eventually get used to them. The picture shows this as well. Good idea.

This is a great eight shot. I have lived near railroad tracks my entire life until about 2 years ago. I didn't realize how much I relied on the sound of the train to fall asleep until I moved away from it. To this day I have trouble falling asleep without it and when we visit somewhere I can hear the train, I sleep much deeper.

I envy you and Heather, having lived near train tracks... I love the sound of a passing train! How conveniently handy there for you Della...

many people would think silent nights are better for sleep..but i agree the noise of a distant road or passing train can help you drift off... & a nice photo too
