Come to think of it... do they even have thunderbirds available in case the tunnel blacks out for a long time?

Working on a track cleaning car using these Lego erasers I found in the bargain bin at Bed Bath & Beyond. Now I've got them mounted just right so they rub on the track without creating too much resistance, I'm trying to figure out how I want to motor it up.

I'd like to do something like this where the little cart in the first picture rides underneath a large machine like this, but I'm not sure I can build it short enough to both fit the little cart AND survive the 15" radius curves.

Very nice, but the woman doesn't go the to root reason of it all. The rails! That allow the train to go into a single direction only. Kids with the gift of autism just recognize right away that this is the superior form of transportation.

I remember as a kid when traveling with my family in a car, I often wold imagine if all the roads we would travel were railroads. I'd see a dirt road like this and imagine it all was some little used forestry railroad.

Why steam trains, one would ask. My suspect is the mechanical simplicity. A kid 4 year old could understand how the thing works (maybe excluding steam cut-off). Heat a kettle, get steam, steam moves a piston. I remember trying to work the valve gear out with pen and paper, the problem of dead center would bother me greatly. I ended up with something that wasn't unlike the Coalbrooksdale locomotive, baby steps.

And no, no autism here. I think it is because my grandparents lived next to a railroad.

Both trains were Stadler Flirts

>> No.131820  

From what images and video I have seen, both sets were three-car FLIRT diesels. The line itself is a single track with PZB 90, an intermittent ATS.

Some journos have been keeping up their trade's rumoured factual fidelity by claiming that the "Fahrdienstleiter" (train dispatcher/controller) had switched the protection system OFF to expedite a delayed train.

Well, I checked. AFAICS, the headcode 1Z99 is still in use, but 2Z99 has been retired. That one was given to line-clearing trains returning from an incident or otherwise not involved in line-clearing. They are now listed as freights of an appropriate class.

I think it gets trumped by 1X01, unless that's the reason for the 1Z99.

Hopefully, 1X01 will never need any 1Z99 attention, except for maybe a plough ahead.
