Can you find my birthplace? It's in the maple trees, this side of the barn...upwind unfortunately!

Check out the crossroads in the upper right corner of the picture. A car is about to cross the railroad track. That white line the car is about to cross looks like a road, but it is the ballast of the B & O Railroad. Follow the line to the right and you will notice that it becomes a railroad 'cut.' From our house, you could only see the steam of the engines, the train was mostly hidden in the cut as it passed from Cincinnati to St. Louis or visa versa.
