I don't think anyone actually cared, to be frank. You deleted your own post because you got heckled a bit.

We got a cause yet?


I'm putting my bet on a loco hitting the switch.


At least it wasn't precious orange juice and only automobile parts.


What am I going to drink my OJ out of now? Chessie will catch hell for this.


Looks like a seized traction motor.

Can anyone tell me what vehicle is this?


File: 1559755605967.jpg (162.13 KB, 1024x768, rvp-17_0006.jpg)

It might be AT-T heavy tow, those were often used in the tech rescue (repair) trains. You can clearly see the T-34 chassis.

Or it might be some other T-34-based heavy equipment, for it does look more bulky and angular than AT-T. Where was this pic made?


The road sign is, from what little I know, in Polish, and the Wikipedia mentions the Polish Railways as a user of the T55-based WZT-2 recovery vehicle.

So I'm overnight on a Amtrak train. Let's see how slow the board is on a Friday night… Ask me anything.

>>7473 Philly, Dilly Dilly!

All three cars were in SAV tonight. There was a small event in the dome tonight with plenty of friendly waves to those stretching their legs on the platform. It sucks that Amtrak's new rules, rates, and restrictions are really killing the PV business. I can understand the focus on OTP. Yet some of the recent restrictions I've heard about at WAS just seem petty. The Dearing is a neat car, hope it finds a good home.


I hope so too. I got to tour it a few years ago and it was absolutely gorgeous. It's a shame that the owners were pressured into selling by the new policies. I understand the need for OTP and all the other metrics that determine if Amtrak is running "well", but I'll bet that if Amtrak had sat down with a few representatives from the RPCA, we'd have a better policy that everyone would be at least sort of happy with today.



FWIW, the owners aren't selling it (which is a bit surprising, considering how far in the hole they are after last years New River Train) just putting it in storage and hoping for better days.

Meanwhile, the State of West Virginia, in conjunction with Amtrak, announced that the New River Train will continue in 2019… exactly HOW has yet to be explained.



How were the new seats?


Well that's good to hear. I thought I'd read somewhere that they were selling it. Maybe I misremembered it and read that they were *considering* selling.

I think the owner is holding on to it due to her extreme personal connection to the car. I'd bet she's willing to put it in storage for a while hoping for better days rather than just dumping it on someone else because she loves the car so much.

I propose a caboose thread!

As an aside, I have a question for Parovoz/1524 - in Russian/Soviet service, are there cabooses? What are they called?

I am also interested in other countries' equivalent to cabooses - I know that the brake van in the UK is roughly analogous yet served a different purpose. Were there other caboose like cars in other countries?

>How would you call these escort cars? Служебный вагон? И еще один вопрос - камбуз, это вагон ЖД или что-то другой? Дякую з допомога)

"Вагон сопровождения" их обычно называют. Камбуз в русском к вагону не относится, оно обозначает корабельную кухню. А ви шо, з України?
Sorry for anyone else for that native language insertion, it was some cheeki-breeki linguistics so no big need in translating it anyway

Anyway, if you've read my posts below the one you replied to, as I said, even much more recent freight cars had this platform for shunting purposes. Since I don't know much about railroading operation in 1800s - early 1900s I can only assume it's the same here.

Dammit, but why did I stumble across the near PERFECT picture to illustrate local freight service in Russia only short time after I've already posted another pic? Anyway, here it is, better (by quality) illustration of the local freight service in Russia, for convenience often done by shunters (road switchers).

sup y'all. glad to see such an open and diverse community here (learned more about Russian railroading in one day than I have in 16 years of living), and I'd like to join it.
any hoosiers here? Or am I the only one? cuz I am one, and live not 3 miles from a double-track CSX/NS mainline, and help out on a family farm, so I could probably contribute a lot, since grain trucks and trains often meet each other (as in hearing switching maneuvers over a walkie).

also a furry, btw, but I'm sure everyone's fine with that. so, yeah! that's me!

lastly, how does this username thing work? I've never used a chan before, and I don't want to screw up my username forever.

What do you call an eighteen year old virgin girl in Kentucky?
[spoiler]Fast enough to outrun her father, her four brothers, and her twelve cousins.[/spoiler]

Do spoilers even work on 1chan? Eh, I don't care. Have some L&I.
The southern third or so of the state (Indian Country) is closer to the south culturally than it is anything else, so long as you stay away from the brain eaters.


Someone thinks they're being funny but they're not. >>7459 I 2nd this

Choo choo.


What about a fire fighting train?


Might as well…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=378HTagRxSA – Rescue and fire-fighting trains stationed in Fulda and Kassel. German fire-fighting trains are on ALERT 5 around the clock.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFSkBSfOJnU – The Fulda train on exercise in the Krieberg tunnel.

The Swiss trains are known as LRZ (which stands for Lösch- und Rettungs-Zug – fire-fighting and rescue train). They are numerous enough (the Swiss Railways run 16 trains, BLS runs one) that one should be at any accident site within an hour.

1chan's future is at a point where some kind of change needs to be made. It seems that everyday the world becomes more decisive, combative, and political. Unfortunately 1chan, which couldn't be further from the aforementioned problems, is often used as a platform to promote these ideals. Most of the time, this is "accidental" and we're chosen as a target merely for having chan in our name. 1chan is a place where free speech is respected, but the discussions MUST be on topic.

As such, it's at this point where we must decide how to move forward. The current Image Board software is no longer in development, and is subject to hacking attacks. The alternatives are finding a new image board software or converting to forum software. As we are a chan, anonymity is a core way of how this board works. Optimistically we'll find image board software that will suit our purpose. However, realistically with anonymity we're always open to attacks.

For the most part, our userbase is a few loyal returning users. Which leads to the question should we convert to a forum? Essentially the only difference would be the addition of a profile connected to posts. I'm curious to hear from the users before any decisions are made. What do you all think?

Ha, during the upgrade all the original pages are overwritten. Unfortunately the Catalog is not coming back. I just don't see the point. This board is slow beyond belief, people rarely go past the first page, almost never past the second. It also eats up my resources to generate the page.

I've looked at fikaba and while it's an interesting idea, it doesn't fit what we need. Specifically it lacks things like stickied and locked threads. Both of which are things that Wakaba (the second software 1chan used) were able to do.


On 1chan.us, you have to register to post. Bronnen.net uses vichan and has an optional registration.

I also found this: https://github.com/ECHibiki/ViQa-Kissu. Just throwing stuff out here.


It's possible to post anonymously on forum software. And you can also enable premod for anonymous users.


Try to enable opcache in php.ini. Do you use mod_php or php-fpm?


I know I’m late to the table on this but I thought I’d throw my two cents in.

phpBB is ugly as sin. I’ve got history with many a forum using it, and no matter what brand of lipstick you put on that pig, it’s still a pig.
I’m not as well versed in coding and chan technology as I once was but I still revel in the fact that not only is this place a legitimate Chan, but one of the oldest Chans still in existence. I like the layout the way it is, and I would hate to see it go.
As far as I’m concerned, the occasional porn posts and political spam isn’t a big deal unless we make it one. I’ve been around a lot of Chans and I’ve seen far worse. Plus it’s not like we have to remain advertiser-friendly like 4chan once tried to be. We’ve got the usual 15 dickheads that come here for the same thing and I don’t think some tinfoil hat nutjob posting about the Koreas is gonna come between that.

And yes, this comment was partly to prove that someone does in fact go to page 2 ;)
