There’s Something Incredibly Unique About This One Small Town In West Virginia

St. Marys is a small city in Pleasants County, West Virginia. With a population of 1,860, it’s a charming little place, but there’s something else that sets St. Marys apart from most towns. It’s one of the few towns in America where trains share the street with cars.

You can see the trains and cars sharing the road in this video by YouTube user Conraildan.

The cars pull to the side of the road when the trains come through.

This looks like it would be fun to see, unless you’re in a hurry to get somewhere!
