I chose Ax's thread, cause he described the town a bit more.

No hard feelings!

And you people trying to set me up with a fellow albino railfan I've met just once should be made aware that she plans to go to Canada in a year or so, perhaps not permanently but certainly for a while.

Perosnally, I'm just hoping to strike up a friendship. Come on, someone else who likes trains? Made of SuperWin!
