Yup there's Nimata who will likely be the full successor, but she also has Chibi who is her current assistant. She's only like a year younger, but still she will probably outlive Tama.

>> No.125571  

With regards to furfaggotry and foaming over trains, they seem to go hand in hand most of the time.
There's also quite a good handful who work in the railway too. Not me though, I'm just an engineering student who has art of himself in the uniform of a fictional railway from somewhere...erhem.

Is there any sort of wind speed limit on bridges like these?

We don't have any railroad bridges like this in Houston, we do have a high road ridge that was closed when this same storm hit us yesterday.

Also anyone know why the power flash at Raising Canes? I mean I saw the power line get severed by the falling cars, but if that was powering the building wouldn't it stay off?

>> No.125509  

>>125508
No idea. Maybe they have a generator and it kicked in?

As far as wind speed restrictions? None that I know of, but I'm sure they'll make up a rule for it now.

>> No.125510  

>>125509
Found the answer for the power on reddit

"The reclosers (basically a smart circuit breaker) are designed to shut off when there is a fault (that giant explosion you saw). And then they wait a bit and reconnect and check if anything is still wrong. In this case it looks like it saw the disturbance, shut off, and then restored power. Pretty sweet if you ask me."

Anyways I could see the necessity for wind restrictions in conditions like these. I'm sure a remote anemometer can't cost too much.

At least the wind didn't take the whole bridge

>> No.125522  

That happened to me once in Montana. Minus the train actually falling. Strong storm winds were rocking the train so hard that it sided out for like 4 hours. That was especially bad for us hobos onboard who got rained on and shaken by wind for 4 hours.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinzua_Bridge

>The bridge was originally built from iron in 1882 and was billed as the "Eighth Wonder of the World", holding the record as the tallest railroad bridge in the world for two years. In 1900, the bridge was dismantled and simultaneously rebuilt out of steel to allow it to accommodate heavier trains. It stayed in commercial service until 1959 and was sold to the Government of Pennsylvania in 1963, becoming the centerpiece of a state park. Restoration of the bridge began in 2002, but before it was finished, a tornado struck the bridge in 2003, causing a large portion of the bridge to collapse.
>> No.125555  

Well I think BNSF has a wind restriction in place at the old C&S High Bridge in Cheyenne Wyoming
Cause when the wind goes up traffic increases around my areas
The bridge still says C&S on it driving on Lincolnway

We had this happen in Chicago about two years ago.
double stackso love to flip over in high wind.
surprised they weren't any flip overs in the Rochelle tornado.

Man, that flu has really been screwing with me. Now I forgot to mention that the brochure was published in, I think, 1968. The Korean disco cars are not quite as innovative as their owners would no doubt like to think.

So apparently a station on the Talyllyn Railway was broken into and trashed. Can't imagine what scumbags would do this.
