How'd You Like To Live There?

Wouldn't you like to live there?

I grew up near a lightly-used CN branchline in St. Catharines, Ontario. The tracks ran at the end of my street, about ten houses away. I considered myself very lucky to have tracks so close to where I lived; I have memories of trains rumbling by on their way to the nearby Port Weller Drydocks.

I may have lived close to the tracks, but not as close as the folks who live in the house in the photo above!

That house is perched beside the locomotive shop in Altoona, PA. Wouldn't you like to have your bedroom window look out over the scene below?

The view from the house.

Like many model railroaders, I have placed a house near the tracks on my layout—the kind of place I'd like to live, if I could. See photo below.

"My" house on the M & M Sub.
