Christmas Train Tooting

I have been wanting to post this since 2:30 am this morning. How do I know it was 2:30 am? I looked at the clock to see the time.

So, we have a train trestle about 8 houses to the south of us. We have both passenger and freight trains that go by 24/7. However, last nights train was THE WINNER of all trains.

After I hear the train "toot" at the 1st crossing in town, I waited to see if it did it at crossing #2. It did. I woke the husband then and told him to listen . . . normally we can hear the "toots" clear into Buffalo. Not last night  . . . no more "toots."

So, you ask, "Paula, what is SO SPECIAL about the toots of the train?"

Here is how they sounded . . you might have to do your own "toots" out loud to know what the song was.  (hint: song)

toot     toot     toot    

toot     toot     toot    

toot     toot     toot     toot     toot    

If you know the song, (hint: Christmas) it was tooting, leave me a comment. I'll post the answer tomorrow.

    I too have train tracks about 1/2 mile from the house. This year the Polar Express was running 3x a day. So cool to be the North Pole!
