(Harbert, Michigan) People ask me why I don’t have a model railroad.  I am, after all, a lifelong choo-choo cuckoo, so I should have a model railroad down in my basement. Well, we don’t have a basement, and we don’t have the scratch to buy all the rolling stock and track and trestles and what-nots one needs to create a modern model railroad.  So, what’s a poor train nut to do but to hop on his bike and head over to the CSX tracks that run through his hometown and wait for some real model railroading.  Nothing like watching real railroaders operate the layout, up close and personal.  Case in point:  I was northbound on Prairie Road this afternoon (2/21/17), when I heard an eastbound freight hammering its way toward the unprotected crossing at Youngren Road.  “If I just put the muscle to the pedals, I can…
