Why is it so many other countries have this track arrangement? Never seen it in Murka, learned about it the hard way numerous times in MSTS.

>> No.124252  

It looks like they're protecting the main. We have some switches with similar effect.

>> No.124254  

It's equivalent to trap points or a derailer, but means that a slow moving train won't end up eating ballast if it moves in error or. It's also conveniently futureproof if it's ever desired to double the stretch of track in question.

>> No.124260  

i think in the past it was more common in the US, until passenger ops started dropping off and railroads got more stingy about turnout installations.

Part of me wonders what's at play.
I can understand the Tokyo Metro rage vid considering complaints were filed and people got upset. Not quite sure what's up with the vid here though. The uploader is also prominent. Neither videos are mine.

Either this dragon is having bad luck or 1chan is bad luck. Or it's 2chan's fault!

I meant a former Conrail Locomotive in general... Although NS does have a few former Conrail SD40-2Rs.

Hyperloop Construction Starts Next Year With the First Full-Scale Track

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, the company that wants to move the revolutionary transit system out of Elon Muskfs brain into the real world, plans to start construction on an actual hyperloop next year.

OK, it will only run five miles around central California, and it wonft come anywhere close to the 800 mph Musk promised, but itfs a start.

The charm wore off? How do you still love it if the charm wore off? Or is it too complex to really put into words?

>> No.124095  

The romanticism of it all has worn off. Sitting on the engine doesn't have any child like wonder to it anymore. It's just a job for the most part, now. I mean, I love my job, but the mystique of railroading is no longer there. You don't wonder where those cars are going. You know where they're going. Meeting a loaded coal train isn't something you try to catch on video, it's something stopping you from getting home.

I love the railroad, and love learning more and more about it, but the things that once captured your awe and imagination are now just part of your working day.

I used to liek ariplane. I could go to an airport and park under a runway and watch planes take off and land day and night. It was pretty cool. You could take a girl and make out and finger bang her in the backseat and stuff. Now after 911 you can't get near an airport to planespot. So I changed over to trains. They're big and loud and always a different color scheme. Like when we had delta and eastern and all of dem different painted planes. I haven't tried to finger bang a chick when a train goes by because tfw no qt 3.14 gf.

>> No.124128  

If you love plane spotting I'd recommend going to the Founders' Plaza at DFW if you're ever in the area.

It's a nice setup, has a radio feed of the tower, covered seating, free binocular machine things, and plenty of parking. If I ever have a gf again I'll probably take her there.

You are safe in traffic, then. There is nothing train-related in it. Much better to type "I'm a Train" into Google and click on a Youtube link mentioning Albert Hammond; something like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3tlCqqg7lw At least you can stomp or even sing to that.
