Wouldn't You Like to Study There? II

Students wait for a train to pass
at Goshen College.

Last fall I wrote about how the Norfolk Southern Marion branch bisects the campus of Goshen College in Goshen, Ind. Something similar occurs on the campus of the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND.

The difference in Grand Forks is that students cross over the tracks (in this case, the BNSF Glasston Sub.), in the so-called "Hamster Tunnel," while students at Goshen cross the tracks on foot.

How UND solves the track crossing problem. 

Of course, the only time I ever saw a train go under the tunnel was when I didn't have a camera; Mitch Walsten, a student at UND, took the great photo below.

  1. They do have tunnels underground connecting buildings on campus so you can go to class or lunch without going outside when it is 30F below.
