Ignore the children.

There was no railroad crossing, just a streetcar crossing before the downhill lefthander after the overpass (I think it was called Turn 12?).

Urgh really?

I’ll check it out later, not sure what the issue is. Dailymotion was being troublesome yesterday and when I uploaded to YouTube it was immediately blocked by FOM on copyright grounds.
