I am in the LIRR 'cavity' Both the KO and PJ lines (and DIVIDE) are <5 miles from home. I hear horns from the New South Rd. and South Oyster Bay Rd. crossing all the time.

I live close to the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail. I have the West Side Avenue line running at the end of my block, which is about a half block from me. The station that is better accessible to me is Liberty State Park. I love that I live relatively close to this great system. The service is definately nice to have over the bus service I get in my area.

I used to live in South Orange NJ, and Mountain Station was basically my back yard, about 60 feet from the house.

I live a 2 minute walk from MBTA Green B-Line, 10 minute walk from the MBTA Green C-Line, and 15 from the D-Line. Also I am about 2 miles from CSX Beacon Park, and Grand Junction.

We live a short ¼ off the CSX Indy-St Louis between CP-98 and CP-99. I can watch trains from my train room window, when there isn’t any corn outback like this year.

Closest line I think is the Lexington Industrial track up in Catlettsburg, about 2 or 3 miles away, with the Big Sandy Subdivision (CSX) a close second, about 6 miles east.

I'm about a half a mile from the SEPTA R3 line, 4 miles from the CSX philly sub and the NEC. And then about 8 miles from the Keystone Corridor. Plus a quarter mile from SEPTA 101 trolley if that counts.
