/rail/,

Does anyone remember playing MSTS? If you do, do you remember at the big terminal on the Settle Carsile line, if you make it past the station and through the train yard (the consist I used were the two BNSF locomotives backwards, so I could drive forward on it), you can make your way onto some secret line that isn't marked on the map? It's been years since I played it and I dunno if anyone else remembered it but google searches didn't help me find anything on it so I thought I'd ask here. The only memories I have of it was that the scenery was very bare and it had a few unnamed stations every now and then. Can anyone who has this game try it out? Or is it a lost cause? Thanks.

when you look past 'trains!' a railroad is a company that owns land

GLBT has announced they're at the 'acquiring' part - I think Kelo v New London will play hard and long

There's also a yuuuuge amount of hot money looking to move (out of china..) and laundering via 'real estate partnerships' is the other big play here

I'm fairly sure this will progress to the land buying stage, but much less certain it will ever turn a wheel..

What reports were you telling us all to read to get a true picture of a company's worth and operations as compared to the puff pieces they put out for investors?

I'm at that point now that I need to start investing and I can think of no better or wiser a man than you in that respect.

I'm genuinely surprised they didn't already have something like this. Your average 'Murkan MOW crew has the odd cooler strapped to the back of a tamper or some other such machine.

It would be a glorious day if a property owner went to court against a Class 1 because they found one of the MoW taking a shit in their yard.

The device can dispense hot and cold water, it seems, so coffee should not be a problem. Heck, it even has storage space for cup noodles or something like that, so there is a way to keep the gang fed.
