Speaking of JR500, someone could get to injecting the Kansenja series into Kamen Rider or something!

Also matching JR East's pokémon train offer I guess.
But what bites me more is that it feels like they're spelling out that the JR500 series is going to be retired in a year or 2, just as the E4 is going to be now that they're repainting them.

On the contrary. He was wearing a bag over both shoulders and had his back to the tracks. If he got caught on the train, he'd be dragged until something fell off. His body.

There is a grand total of one mixed train left in North America, which serves native reservations in northern Manitoba with no road access. Until 2007 a similar train operated to the remote town of Moosonee in northern Ontario, until it was replaced with separate freight and passenger services.

I hopped onto a running loco once. It was an old EMD NW2R. It was on a side track in Galveston, TX down near the docks. This thing was ANCIENT it was still wearing a full SP livery and mind you this was in like 2007.

Anyways so this thing is getting ready to head down to the dockside railroad, and all of the sudden the engineer sees me. Thinking oh boy the jig is up, and preparing to be booked by a rail-cop. He waves me up into the cab.

I step inside and stand with my hands behind my back. The loco lurches forward. We start to get close to first of the many intersections and he signals for me to hit this huge yellow button. It's the horn he tells me the sequence to blow it in. We continue forward for nearly a mile. Before slowly coming to a halt. We then proceed in reverse back to the side track we came from.

We come to a stop at the end of the side track. I smile and thank the engineer for being so gracious and hop of the locomotive. I then proceed to look at the rest of the exhibits at the Galveston Railroad Museum.

The train was run by the Galveston RR Museum as one of their exhibits. You're fully allowed to ride the train, although generally you're in a caboose (the only car attached to the loco). Our group was invited into the loco as a boy scout group had "reserved" the caboose.
