Share the Street with a Train

Although the tracks set into the asphalt resemble those for harmless trolleys or "light rail," they're used by full-size crush-everything-in-their-path trains.

Share the Street with a Train

The South Shore Line runs from South Bend, Indiana, to Chicago. For two miles in Michigan City, Indiana, it runs down the center of city streets. And, yes, the train has to stop for the traffic lights. During the work week about 24 passenger trains come through Michigan City every day.
