Sunday Drive Part I: The Signpost Up Ahead

Photo by Dave Spencer

This past Sunday, when there was no flooding rain and no tornado warning, I felt it was time to hit the backroads. I think, over the years, I’ve covered about all the ground you can cover in a car in Daviess County. Yet, I still see things worthy of a snapshot, like the railroad crossing in the accompanying picture; it’s located on Yelvington-Grandview Road just past Maceo. Notice anything about what’s in the picture that kind of stands out?

Well, at first, I drove right past it. Didn’t think a thing about it. Then it hit me. So I backed up and took the photo. Now, I’ve seen plenty of yield signs; we all have. And they’re usually in spots where drivers might not be certain to whom they should give the right of way. A bypass or interstate onramp comes to mind. But this yield sign–actually, there were two of them–just cracked me up. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’ve ever needed to be told to yield to an oncoming train. I mean, there have been times in my life where I’ve needed things pointed out or explained to me. But not fighting a locomotive for the right to pass isn’t one of them. I think, thank God, that I have cleared that hurdle.
