I grew up about a block from train tracks. For some reason the high-pitched singing of the rails as a train approaches (before you even hear the train) is one of my favorite sounds...

One of my favorite memories is staying at my Aunt's house and hearing the train at night. Oh Dawn....your new house is so wonderful in so many ways.......

Hugs!

"Hear that lonesome whistle blow"....that is a sound you will have to get use to being that close to the tracks, I am guessing.
How many trains come thru at night ?

That is country living for sure.

What is it about trains and their whistles?
We have tracks about a quarter of a mile from the house. In fact, to sets of tracks that meet [well, just about meet] just down the hill from here.
The whistles remind me of my not so distant ancestors who worked for the railroad as many Irish immigrants did.
Could I move to a house with not a train within hearing distance, I think not.

Hugs & ♥♥♥s,
Gerry

I Love living by a Train ~ I am lucky to have a Train where I live now & the last place I lived ~ as I look out my front window, the Train Tracks are in the Back yards of the Homes across the street, the tracks are built up on an embankment with trestles to cross roads so I rarely hear the Horn ~ but I feel it all the time, it makes my whole place shake ~ You'd think it was an Earth quack ~ Something So Peaceful about a Train.....

I thought about you yesterday. I was in Griffin to welcome home Blake Rodgers. I wanted to stop by your booth at the antique mall but that little town was jam packed. Have a blessed day.

My Grandma lived by the train tracks, I loved hearing the trains go by. I sure do miss her and the sounds of the trains. Loving that Rose picture.

Train tracks!!! I love trains : ) We used to have one right up the road from us when I was a kid. I loved laying pennies on the tracks and coming back to get them after they were squished. So fun! I'm loving all of the new home posts, Dawn. The house is adorable. Can't wait to see what all you do to it! Your touch will make it a HOME : ) *sigh* So nice to hear things are going so well. Lots of love to you!

One of my fondest memories is of "spending the night" with my Memaw and hearing the trains come to and go from the lumber mill. What a lovely view! xoxo Andy

Having always lived by the tracks, I know that you will enjoy hearing that whistle blow and, if not, that you'll get very used to it. You'll always be able to tell which direction to go, too. ;>

I love that you are letting us join you on your journey of the "new" to you farmhouse. It is so much fun to see it transform into your dream.
We also are looking to leave the town life and our too big house to a nice plot of land out some with a small farmhouse. We'll see if it works out.

I love hearing the trains by by! So much better than auto traffic. It brings back memories of living with my grandparents and hearing the train whistle in the distance...both my grandfathers worked on railroads. Both came to this country from The Old Country and worked very hard to raise their families during the Depression. Yes, memories...especially since neither is no longer with us. Wonderful men, both of them.
Thank you for the lovely pictures, Dawn.
Hugs and blessings and the house is looking great!

Dawn, I love the view. Will the trains keep you awake? When will you move in?

Jo said...

We have trains running along the end of our back garden - there's only 2 an hour peak time and they're pretty quiet. I'm actually rather fond of them. Thanks for those gorgeous free images - they're so lovely you could trot them out again and again and they'd still be just as lovely!

Lovely pictures and the view out your window is stunning!

You lucky, lucky girl Dawn. I just love the sound of a train, especially at night. Love it.

Halo Hill said...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I love a train. Being in bed hearing one go by is always comforting for some reason. Have you already moved in? I can't quite tell? Anyway, it is an awesome house, Dawn!

Hugs,
Sheila

Good Morning Dawn! I was thrilled to see the image you posted of the flowers and the little bird because I have a very very old print of that exact painting. I found it in an antique shop, it has a slight tear in it but it is absolutely gorgeous and very large. I don't know if it's a lithograph or even how to tell, but the back of the print is very aged (yellowed). Is there any information you can give me about who painted it (I'll have to look at it again to read the name as I don't remember it off the top at 6:30 am!) Strangely enough the little image of the bees I believe I got from you a while back here and I have it printed on some muslin to add to a tote for a friend! What a happy thing to see both these images this morning! Good luck on your move - Also, I have a great giveaway happening on my blog if you have time to check it out! XOXO, Dianne

Love hearing trains! You are so lucky to be near them. Lived in a small town my early years, and trains were one of the things I loved! House is looking good.
Have a great week end.

Smiles and Blessings,
Nancy
