Irish Rail vs Palo Alto Rail

Back home in Palo Alto, a rail line built during Abraham Lincoln's presidency regularly disrupts the life of the car driving public. There, they have to wait at crossings for as long as, God forbid,  two minutes at times. Well,  the Irish seem to  have even more patience.

 In the sequence of pictures above, in rural Ireland, warnings are given repeatedly on roads that deliberately zig and zag for the last 200 yards before they reach  a train crossing. On those "busier" country roads, where there is a barrier that gets lowered, the wait time is an automatic five minutes!! Ugh.......
