Railroad Tracks

Another time I was plowing a piece of ground across the railroad tracks at Franc Siding over in the quakies. I had finished and was going to the next field which was back across the tracks. I pulled the white top buggy behind the plow carrying the fuel for the tractor from piece to piece. I had my coat hung on to the end of it. As I got to the railroad tracks ready to cross them I noticed my coat had fallen off. I stopped the tractor and got off to get the coat. I was about 3-4 feet from the track. I had just barely climbed back on the tractor and the train whizzed by. If I had been a split second sooner or if my coat had not have fallen off, I would have been on the track when the train came and it would have hit me for sure.
