train kept a rollin

I decided to pay a visit to the Perkasie tunnel on New Years Eve day.  I know the rails are still used occasionally for freight, but there is no schedule.

As I was walking towards the tunnel, I hear the unmistakable low-frequency rumble of an approaching train.

A few seconds later, the engine emerges

And a few seconds after that, it’s right by me. A cool and unexpected surprise.
