Train o'clock

I've never lived in a town that had any regular train activity. Now I do.

There are tracks running roughly parallel to the main drag, and they cross many of the connecting streets. The best part of the conductor's (do they still call them that?) day must be rolling through Pierre and laying on the horn. When we first arrived, our hotel was right next to the tracks and that was an experience.

Train o'clock happens about 3 times a day, and so far, I've missed getting stopped at one of the many train crossings in town. Sometimes train o'clock is 5 AM, but I usually sleep through it.
