Normally, this isn't one of the most memorable views in Boise, driving along Five Mile road near the railroad tracks just north of Franklin. There's razor wire topping the fence around power company equipment. And, industrial-looking buildings along the tracks. But the sunset is pretty right behind some small storm clouds. The railroad tracks run right by Boise Towne Square, the regional shopping mall. And yes, trains do come through, only freight trains, though. Amtrak passenger service stopped about ten years ago. Everyone once in a while, a car gets too close to the tracks when the trains come through and there's a small accident. The trains move slow through these areas. I remember an incident from about 20 years ago when a man ran his truck into the train as it was moving through the crossing. He was an older gentleman. He told police he thought he was too close to the tracks, so he popped his truck into "reverse" and gunned the engine to get back quick - only he put the engine in "drive" instead.
