Middle School students from Nipher Middle School in Kirkwood walk a well worn path that leads them across a set of railroad tracks on their way home after school on Friday, Sept. 14, 2012.  Everyday more than a dozen students take the same path across the tracks as they walk both to and from school. Photo By David Carson, dcarson@post-dispatch.com
