Default Point A to Point B ... or maybe Point C?

Here is a common sight found in most towns around the country. This is an older shot taken with my Minolta S414.

I have some other railroad shots that would be good for this challenge but I am still hunting for them.

Neat shot, it's definitely going off in two different directions. I love shots like this.

Me too - love the ambiguity...

Minor detail, I find the 2 cars at the right of the background are a little distracting to my eye, Clonable?

I agree, nice one Cal!

The 'lack of an answer' (ie which way will the train go?) adds interest.

Cheers

There are actually 4 cars and a pickup. The only way to cleanly remove them is with a crop but that would remove too much detail.

Thanks to all for your nice comments.
