I wish trains had wheels because my bus is late

Trains do in fact have wheels


Wrong type for OP’s sulk. Not that they would help, because road trains would have even greater problems in city traffic than buses already do.


It's called a tram anon


Holy crap, if only those had caught on Light Rail would look more like mid-century American design, and not Euro-Trash leftovers.


>>5659 I would build a Rail Bus like that but I'd try to find a 15 passenger Shorty bus like it

At least there's a reason for that. That's my "reading light". I also have, for some reason, two sets of cab lights - red and white. I hate those red lights - they make everything really hard to read, especially on the pink paper I have to use for Sunday schedules.


That is an option with the new GE engines. I don't care much for the red lights. I just want a dimmer switch.

I'm no driver, but it would certainly be a comfortable place in the peak hour crush lol.


So I've got to ask: what's the difference between the town and country options on the horn?


>>5926 – “Town” is softer, “Country” is louder.

And Now For Something Different… German steamers:

Who runs these? Are they sponsored by DB or privately run?


>>5913 – I think it is all kinds of everything. The locos and stock are owned by museums, clubs and societies, I velieve, but much of the track is DB track.

Because there's far too much stupidity in this country, because efforts by Operation Lifesaver and the railroads themselves just aren't enough, the US Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have joined forces to shout into the abyss.

At the time, I didn't know. However, I do now.


Ah, by foamer recognition I would have thought this would have gained some notice in the general public too.

The campaign itself looks quintessentially American. Is it but a gross exaggeration that the general public really generally expect trains to blare that long-short-long-long signal in every unguarded stoppings? Because I think in much of the rest of the world those are implicit stop signs.


Here in Brexistan, we've done pretty well with two simple messages. Pedestrians get SEE TRACK THINK TRAIN while drivers get DON'T RUN THE RISK.

Doesn't always stick, though.

Holy shit!

Also, is that how railroad crossings in Bongland sound?


Passive-aggressively polite Britishness.

The engineer sounds "caution" (TOOT-toot, motherfucker) and then starts to slowly crawl towards the traffic. What do you know, the path was cleared by the time they reached the crossing :)

Cool, just post trains and train accessories and you'll fit in nicely

If you didn't like the Bombardier Acelas, well, you won't have them to kick around much longer.

So, what do we think, folks?


I actually can't wait to see these.

In all likelihood? Nothing. "Do not hump" is just a suggestion in my book.


In this case, they probably don't want a poorly retarded cab slamming into a string of cars at 10MPH and shaking electronics.


It's not really the electronics that would get damaged, but more the mechanical components that could get destroyed. Just the engine is something that you don't want getting slammed into an abrupt stop at 4 mph. Because we all know that 4 mph is the maximum safe coupling speed and that cars NEVER EVER hit harder than that.

4 mph is also a pretty rough coupling if you've ever felt it, so just imagine what actually happens when you're pulling pins at about 6 mph and they pick up some speed in the track. I've literally seen cars JUMP off the bolster and fall back in.


In most of the EU, railroads have long stopped doing fying shunting.


Because they truck most everything or run unit trains. Kicking cars is mostly safe, very efficient, and fun.

what do you think is the best train/railway games/simulators, or do you have any recommendatiotions.

Has anyone bought Rolling Line? How good is it without a VR headset? The price is very tempting.

pretty barebones, not everything on the "main" layout is open for customizing yet, but shows lots of promise. it's literally a model railroad simulator and that's pretty much what it delivers.


File: 1528638373159.png (3.22 MB, 1920x1080, Railway Empire.png)

Yesterday, I found out that Railway Empire got some new DLC. It's set in 19th Century Mexico, and you are advised by General (and future President) Porfirio Díaz. There's also new locomotives like this double-ended Fairlie.

Been so long since I've played Railway Empire, though; I've been forgetting to build maintenance depots at the stations and supply towers on the lines more than a few times. But I'm getting the hang of it.

hello, sorry to bump this thread, but I was thinking of picking up either Transport Fever (With Soviet mod for П36 goodness) or Railway Empire.

Which one of these plays closest to Railroad Tycoon 3? I used to play the hell out of that game and I was thinking about a modern replacement. However, the era I'm most interested in is 1940s/Transition Era (US and So0viet mainly). Which one would be better for that?

Thanks 1chan, keep the trains alive


Railway Empire plays like Railroad Tycoon 3 but with a tech tree and block signals. It goes right up to without including the transitional era; the only diesel in the game is an E-unit equivalent that serves as the 'ultimate technology' express engine.

I haven't played Transport Fever so I really can't say, but if it's anything like its predecessor, Train Fever, then it plays like a shallower, clunkier, 3-D Transport Tycoon. Benefit of the doubt: It may have improved since I played (pirated) one of the early releases.

I’m bored on a train. Can you tell where?

I think you're on to something. Those towering, bleak-looking concrete structures would be the LA County Jail, which is right by the rail line.

Where's your Primeco phone?


We weren't rich like that back then. My dad had a pager, and man at the time I thought that was top notch.



oh god, pagers…

I went to Japan and saw a lot of trains. Here are some of them.

Great use of the siding for advertising..


My wife and I are considering a trip to Japan just because we can get there so cheaply. Does anyone have recommendations for guides because there is no way in hell either one of us can wrap our head around the moonspeak and we'd really like to avoid the language barrier issues.

I gotta get my fix with high speed trains. I got a slight taste of it a short while ago and now I have a speedlust that can only be satisfied by bullet trains. Since Texas won't be getting one for a few years at best, I gotta go to Japan.

In my opinion… Don’t sweat it. English is sufficient for touring Tokyo and Osaka and it will only get easier as Japan continues to prepare for Olympics tourists. We have made several successful trips now without any formal language preparations.

>>5771 – If I understood things correctly, the Evangelion 500 is to become the Hello Kitty 500.

>>5774 – According to the museum’s web and the Wikipedia, it is KuRo 381-11, a driving trailer with second-class seating, used by JNR and JR Central on the Shinano express service.
