Railroad Photography! "Green Light! GREEN LIGHT!! GREEN LIGHT!!!"

"Green Light! GREEN LIGHT!! GREEN LIGHT!!!"
(C) Allen Pearson, All Rights Reserved
"Green Light! GREEN LIGHT!! GREEN LIGHT!!!" is dedicated in loving memory to my brother who passed away several years ago and my grandmother who did the same a year before him!

When I was growing up, one of the exciting parts of my summer was going to West Virginia to see my grandmother.  She lived across the street from two railroad tracks which were part of the Chesapeake and Ohio and Baltimore and Ohio railways. Of course, for me, trips to Grandmother's house were made more awesome because of being able to sit on the front porch in a swing and watch the trains go by! I had a front row seat for every show.

When my brother and I went together to visit Grandmother, when we heard a train coming, we would holler as loud as we could, "Train! TRAIN! TRAIN!!" Whenever we went out front if the red signal had changed to green, we would holler, "Green Light! Green Light!! GREEN LIGHT!!!" so the other, and everyone within hearing distance, would know a train should be coming soon.  Of course, for two young boys that began the longest hour or so in our lives! It's no wonder my grandmother didn't like the two of us to stay with her without our parents!

"Green Light! Green Light!! GREEN LIGHT!!!" is available on printed products including traditional quality archival papers you can frame, metal, canvas, standouts, posters, and notecards.
