Not really , this common in the Northeast. But they tend to be Arch tunnels or underpasses and not small beam underpasses.

Now, about the weather: at the same time Europe is complaining about the heat, we're getting our first cool weather of the fall after several weeks of mugginess (I had my air conditioner on every evening and night for about two weeks, until about Thursday). Highs in the 40s Fahrenheit (5 to 10 celsius) in places like Pittsburgh today, and I see that they're forecasting 52 (11 celsius) in Washington, but 62 and 63 (17 celsius) farther north in New York and Boston tomorrow. I guess the cold front's reaching Washington first.

I have the Weather Channel on, muted, while I listen to Car Talk. They're showing...gasp...some form of frozen precipitation (ice, sleet, freezing rain, rather than snow) in the western tip of Maryland and over the line in West Virginia now.

I am not ready for that.

There is no heat and all people who complain are British and they aren't Europeans..

Without getting into the question of whether Britain is Europe, I'll just say personally I'd be happy if it was 27 to 30 celsius (80 to 86 Fahrenheit), with low humidity, year-round.

EDIT: And reasonable amounts of daylight. I hate the dark of November and December even more than the cold.

This year we had the hottest September in the last 150 years. But we need it, after a lot of rain in July. Today the temperature ranged from 27°C in early afternoon to 16°C now (however 10°C daily variations are common in autumn and spring). But until 2-3 days ago you felt comfortable with t-shirt even at night.

I bet there isn't the same situation in NL: this train is always crowded (at least in the last 3 years since I use it) and they are doing nothing to improve the situation (for example adding an extra carriage).

Well our current and historic Railroads have tours of the old and current rolling stock and the cars tend to be that jammed.
