Thread: A Conumdrum

  1. #1

    Default A Conumdrum

    A question to make you think:

    Does the road cross the railway line or does the railway line cross the road? Tell us which you think it is and why.

    I think that it's the former because the traffic has to give way to the trains. They have the right-of-way.

    Perhaps you think differently. Or perhaps you have a better reason why the former is the case.

    In the same way that the railway crosses the Gisborne airport runway (and not vice-versa), roads cross railways.

    Looks like railway crosses road to me
    Gathering of the storm
    And the winds are blowing wild
    Sweeping over cross and creed, country, colour and child

    They both cross a footpath and everything should give way to pedestrians.

    The road crosses the railway. Anyone who thinks the train will give way will soon learn that.

    Did you not get enough answers the first time you asked the exact same thing 3 years ago?

    Which Is Correct?

    A very important question which I am certain you will want to know the answer to:

    Does the railway line cross the road or does the road cross the railway line?

    I think that it is the former simply because the trains have the right of way. Besides, the part of the road that the railway line is on belongs to the railways.

    What do you think and why?

    Watch out everybody, the repeat police are on the case again! Apparently, according to bevy's law, you are not allowed to do the same thing twice. Can't understand why it offends him so much.

    I don't care if you are laughing. Your opinion means nothing to me. I don't care what an idiot like you thinks.
