In August, 1967, two freight trains collided at Shinjuku station, resulting in a fire that ate 72 tons of jet fuel, and an all-day shutdown.

The cause, IIUC, was driver distraction and slow braking action.

Those of you that have watched driver’s-eye videos from Japan, have very likely often heard a reminder of this incident, namely the tic-toc-tic-toc sound heard from the ATS ringing ‘upcoming stop’ until the train actually stops.



Not to be a troll or anything but…
72 tons is like one or two tank cars and…
hurr durr did it melt steel beams?


Really just one tank car.

A good average is 30 tons per empty car and 100 tons loaded. At least for hoppers and tanks. Autoracks and pigs are stupid light even while loaded. Like only 30-40 tons.


No, but it gave JFK autism on the moon. Having said that, I might be getting my crazies mixed up.

245 km/h (152mph) 1980 Rosslyn to De Wildt South Africa Locomotive 6e 1525….High speed pantographs was tested for British rail on locomotive number E1525. The idea was abandoned thereafter. E1525 was modified for high speed experiments and holds the world narrow gauge speed record of 245 km/h (153mph )

Someone has actually done something for those that want to play commuter train driver.

it definitely looks interesting, but I don't know if I'd be will to spend ten dollars on it. It just seems kinda like a phone game.



I do play it on my tablet as well as the desktop (great travel game!), 1chan followed the alpha and beta testing for a while so maybe we just have a soft spot for the game. I was more than happy to give them my ten of dollars, but you could always wait until a sale pops up.

You could give GMOD a try if you don't already have it, it's incredibly fun for multiplayer operations. You have to have a lot of patience though. Pic related is my model of an FEC Mountain, took about 2 weeks to fully finish.

>Uses it to build trains

1chan, please don't ever change. I mean it. I love you fellow nerds.

It was bound to happen – for real.

MTR Express in Sweden has named one of their Gothenburg–Stockholm trains Trainy McTrainface following a poll run by them and the newspaper Metro.

Well maybe in Russia trains are still considered too unusual hobby to be totally okay with but many "normal" people actually kinda like trains (not as an interest but just sorta peace of mind) so it is unlikely you will be treated like a nutjob should anyone find out about this hobby. It is more likely some slight misunderstanding rather than plain arrogance.

But NO ONE actually can logically justify why they think it is… not an obvious interest even though regular cars or planes are totally fine in everyone's eyes! And this is the common trait between both hemispheres, am'right? Only one familiar girl of mine actually managed to give somewhat of a logical explanation to this and the funny thing she is totally okay with the foaming.


Whoever he is he has damn fine taste in train pictures. :^)


Not my photo, but if I were, I wouldn't mind having it sprayed around meinkraft!

Trains are a weird hobby. I think we're all over it.


What the heck mod is THIS?!


I suppose the answer is on the same picture:)

Like most nip workplaces JR is toxic AF. Read about the root causes of the Amagasaki crash.


>>4106 – I take it you mean the crappy relations between floor and tower within JRWest. It has come up here a few times.

No need in this thread when there is already

On the subject, it would be nice of the admins to implement the search. Yes, it is plausible to go through 10 pages but it will definitely save people some trouble.

And fix the banner positioning… please?


If you know how to fix the banner, lemme know. It's not that I'm not trying to fix but it, but rather I can't figure it out.


Have practically zero experience in this, sorry.
I suppose it's not a document where you can (for the lack of a better option) just use space symbols to push the picture one line lower :)

Happy Fourth of July 1chan!

While I know not all of you are American to celebrate the 4th, this is also the approximate time when Railchan was founded, which led to rebirth of 1chan.

It's been a great year so far, and I look forward to many more to come!

That train is still a mystery to me. They did it for the Independence Day, but details of what went down with it perplex me.

Nevertheless, have some amusement stolen from somewhere else out in the internets. The N gauge American Train is well known, but the Amtrak one lol.

Ah yes, the E60CH, about as well known as the P30CH in terms of Amtrak legacy. Too large to take the NEC at high speed, so demoted to mail trains and long-distance services that didn't need as much hustle, and scrapped a little earlier than anticipated.

One survives at Strasburg.
