When we had the rv park, we had many guest who actually seek out trains. It's part of the whole Americana adventure for them. We had tracks several miles away, but not enough miles for me! The train whistle echoed through the canyon, and though I eventually got use to it, I would prefer not to have to listen to the whistle throughout the night!
Anyway, we had a guest who called looking to see if there was a train in the area? I explained there was a few miles away, but they preferred closer! So I did suggest a few campgrounds that might have been more to their liking! The train was really close to them. But due to the size of the guest rig, he need to stay with us!
I explained it wasn't that close, but they would hear it, if that is what they wanted.
explained all the train tourist traps they could visit within a few hours of us etc. Anyway they made a reservation and when I got off the phone with them, another guest just laughed at me when I rolled my eyes that someone would want to hear the train roll through was a bit different!
She like me, didn't understand the desire!
But told me of a time in their travels where they pulled into a campground late at night! (I think back east somewhere). Backed into a site, crawled into their rv, barely got to sleep when all of the sudden their rv started shaking then the train whistle started blasting, the train light
was shining in their window............
Of course their thoughts were, oh god we backed up over a rail road track!
Her Dh jumped up and out of their rig only to find that the site they backed their rv into was 6ft from the track that ran next to the campground...... There was a chain link fence between them and the track, but that was it!
My only thought was why would someone build a campground that close to a train track? I can't imagine! But there really are people who don't mind the rumble of a train.............
