Another RR Pix Of A Way Of Life That Still Exists

This pix was taken in Myanmar AKA Burma a few days ago.

I, as a Westerner, am always taken by life styles in other less industrialized lands, and this pix shows that in other places livestock have the right of way apparently, i. e., no one expects the goats to make a ewe turn.

The ID caption did not state who that individual with the flag is, i. e., the shepherd, or some RR employee.

Also obvious is that the goats are more than smart enough to realize that there is a limit to the patience of the engineer and they should not kid around by delaying the train, i. e., it would be prudent of them to cross the tracks with alacrity.

Actually goats and I have a great deal in common as we both wish that we had mohair.

By the way, there are still places on this planet where passenger transport is by steam locomotives (and with all the rather considerable maintenance/upkeep they require).

Our trains are smaller than yours, I believe. As a driver (engineer, as you lot call them), I was always taught that animals of a certain size always had right of way, if you could stop in time.

A cow, for example, COULD derail a train. Unlikely, but more than possible, especially at speed.

It couldn't be goat - could it?
