This photo shows a railroad crossing in Newark, Delaware, with a freight train going by. This crossing is on College avenue, just north of Main st, and this photo is looking northbound.

Freight trains are not super frequent, but somewhat regular, at this crossing, sometimes causing annoying delays at this major artery which separates the bulk of the University of Delaware campus from the northern Laird Campus, which is mostly dorms.
