"I've had thoughts about putting light inlays in the sidewalk that flash when the grade crossing is activated. May cost a bit but may be worth it for select crossings, especially where the trains run at higher speeds."

Thanks (mucho) to Nippon, aka Mr. Fan for the map info from one of his previous posts regarding Hamilton Field trackage. 

I discovered that the area where our apartment complex now stands, which was built in '72, has an interesting railroad history.  I've not been able to find any lingering evidence apart from the spacing of some of the industrial/retail buildings to the south that suggest former trackage (with the map as guide).  From other photos and written accounts of days…

Yes, my second time to Afghanistan, once to Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, & Bahrain. I have been mobilized since Mar2003. Each of the before mentioned deployments were one year each. The other five years, I was at Fort Lewis training Soldiers to deploy around the world.

I hope I can start and enjoy my hobby now.... ;)

Thanks Jennifer,

I am back! I am back in the US. I just completed my last overseas tour. I cannot believe how tired I am. I keep breathing a huge sigh of relief.

Wow! You live in Sunnyvale, CA. I used to live in Cupertino, CA. Sunnyvale used to be one of my old stomping grounds.

Hello Jennifer!
