When I was a young kid, I was pretty crazy about trains. It probably had a lot to do with the huge Lionel O-gauge layout we had in the basement. I used to play with those trains for hours and hours. I also loved to look at real trains as well. Whenever I was in the car with my parents, it was always exciting to see a train buzzing down the tracks somewhere. I used to hope and pray that we would have to stop at one of those railroad crossings and watch an entire train as it went by.
