Without sounding biased it is hard to adequately describe the part of the world where I was born. Rather let the late Sir Francis Drake do it: gThis cape is a most stately thing, and the fairest cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth h

150m long rail? That's about 492ft as per the calculator.

Why not? They're just going to get thermite-welded into longer stretches of ribbon rail, and Japanese railroading isn't really built to handle trains much longer than that.

>> No.113574

In the countryside maybe
The standard Shinkansen is 400m long
And outer suburban stock like the E217 and E233 in 15 car configs is double that
Then there's the bog standard 200m commuter stock E233 and E231 along with older models

>> No.113576  

IIRC the longest standard trains (1,067mm gauge) in Japan are 328m long (M250 with 16 cars of 20.5m long). 150m long rails are pretty reasonable when you take an engine and equipment into account.

Lurker here, wanted to see if anyone could identify the load I just saw go by. There were about 20 cars that had what looked like trailers on them and they had power and utility lights in between. They were all labeled Norfolk Southern but only in one corner. After, there were about 5 cars intended for carrying large trash and stuff, like a flatbed but with short walls. Then there were about 10 flatbeds carrying various on-track maintenance equipment. Was this just a maintenance crew or is there more to it?

Also I apologize for my laymen terms, I'm not the most knowledgable on rolling stock identification. Pic semi-related, I had a question about that too.

The other thing I wanted to ask was this: a few weeks ago I saw the two cars above and this caboose on a stray siding here in town. I was curious to see if anyone knew what they were all about. One of the days they were here, they had a sign pointing to the access road saying "Time to train" on it, and I saw a few fire trucks there too. Any ideas?

I don't believe so. There's probably some law about mislabeling empty cars. Anyways there's probably some training that can be done at the local level which teaches how to read the codes.
