Trains overhead while walking with a friend on Heritage Trail Pittsburgh along the Allegheny River, Monday morning. I like the sound of a train whistle.
And Saturday night at Sunset- in Ohio. We crossed the tracks just before the red lights flashed and the gates came down. We pulled in the adjacent lot. I got out and filmed the freight train-a short one. It’s almost 2 and a half minutes, start to finish, which is a short freight train.
There was a really loud noise behind me while I was stopped at the red light on North Avenue.
It was a helicopter Allegheny General Hospital. AHN LifeFlight (Allegheny Health Network)
“…..regional emergency helicopter and critical care ground transportation services for critically ill and injured patients who need immediate specialized care. LifeFlight is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

In a week’s time I hosted Charlie and Laura and then Michael,Jack and Maura.
The streetcar parked in the Heinz History Center lobby was a big hit with all the grandchildren

These past few days driving around the city I’ve seen a lot of freight trains. I pulled over to the curb in the Strip District by the junkyard to catch the Wheeling Lake Erie cars overhead. And while visiting at my friend’s house I love to watch the tugboats push the barges on the Ohio River. The tanker truck was in front of me on the RDFleming Bridge while at a red light. Lots of demolition on the hillside there, too. Right now, as I write this post just before bed, I can hear the train whistle repeat itself loudly in the night.
or in this post- Pedestrians.
I’m going with definition one
synonyms: walker, person on foot;foot traffic
Krista Stevens at WordPress created the photo challenge this week.
I went to scan my archives for something that stood out and found plenty of pedestrians in them.
Cars in our city aren’t too courteous to pedestrians. There are parts of the world where you step into the crosswalk and the cars stop immediately allowing pedestrians to cross. Zagreb

Ohio River Sunday night. We were visiting our Neville Island friends again. They live on the banks of the Ohio River. We had a wonderful boat ride earlier and it was time for dinner. Two tugs and their barges appeared up river and down river. Our host pointed out the buoy that marked the channel and told us they both had to be on this side on it. How would there be enough room? As the sun was sinking we watched them approach one another, a horn blew. It was a dramatic end of the day on the river.
THE word of the week is WAITING
