  1. Quite beautiful, and the train idea is just so bizarre & great.

  2. this is awesome.. such a great idea!

  3. In the United States putting pennies on tracks is illegal. A friend of mine almost got arrested for doing so. I guess this means if you want to do it, do it somewhere rural, and not right by a crossing (which is where she was). The law officer told her, though, that part of the reason it is illegal is that pennies can fly out from under the wheels of trains and can be lethal weapons as such. So don't be too close while the train is crossing. Problem is, according to my brother, who used to do it when he was a kid, it's often hard to find them afterward. A metal press is a more reliable way to do it. We had one in the jewelry class i took in college.
