The Train Trestle

Walkin' the train trestle!  That's where the train track went over the creek right next to grandma's house.  The railroad ties are set widely apart - wide enough for a foot to fall through and get stuck!  If a train was coming we would either have to run or jump in the creek below.  If we got stuck - well I never got stuck, thank goodness!  Not to mention the creek below was probably 2-3 feet deep and we could've broken all kinds of bones.  Ah, those were the days.

Of course, we also used to go sledding and skating on the Wabash River after it froze.  We didn't even know that was dangerous!

LOL, I think everyone has a train trestle story! I still live in the area where mine is and I look at it and cringe. What an idiot I was!
