Long time no post. Hello everyone, I had retired from the rails but I guess I wasn't ready for apartment life. Last night in Eugene OR I witnessed a derailment right as I was arriving to the yard. Still caught out anyways. Do any of you know what route Union Pacific is rerouting trains if they are to avoid the wildfires? I'd imagine it's mostly likely the Feather River Route out of KlamathFalls then the regular route after Roseville right?

Here's a bonus pic. Me in the hole before I switched cars to be with my friends. I just hid in there til we were clear out of town.

Here is a 360° trolley video I did https://youtu.be/l9Wh-BXL9kY


Okay man, I know I usually hassle you, but I'll hand it to you this time: this is an excellent use of the technology. What kind of equipment did you use? Was post processing any more difficult than usual?


Gear 360 paired to an S8
And it took much longer to upload and process.

What is the middle rail in the bridge of this railway?

I've seen several images with the same middle rail in the bridge but I don't what is.

That thing looks like it belongs in Russia.


Maybe, but it is a Swede; a Y6-class railbus.

Sigh, at better times there used to be Cross border passenger traffic. Either by those or a long distance train, but I think it was from the Swedish side.

If there was an Oulu-Tornio local train, it's last leg could service as Tornio-Haaparanda -shuttle. That would be a synchronization nightmare on the other hand, matching a local train and express train both in the middle of their route.

Not in near future.

Not really. It has pretty Swedish design. All that roundness and soft pastel colors.

In the Soviet Union I believe locomotives were mostly poison green ammoboxes on wheels designs by that time. They digged their industrial green pretty much.

These locomotives looked more cheerful in soviet red and yellow.


More like Czechoslovakia or Hungary.

I don't know if this is allowed here but my life is fucked and I'd like to travel around. I'd like to maybe meet someone else to follow around and go where ever with.


Don't do it. It's dangerous in many more ways than you can imagine. However bad you may think your life is fucked, this will not help make it better.

I bailed on 10 years of wanting to build a tiny layout and finally started to build a tiny layout

that's it, thanks

Nice tiny layout. I particularly like how tiny it is.


SD-40s are too mainstream. SD-38s have more class and sophistication. *turns nose*

Noted, thank you

The plan was a straight Inglenook, which ended up getting an extra track to make up for the other tracks being under-length to do it right

Tiny is its own reward

That's just like, your opinion, man

Started to put some power and brains together. Power is a 300w ATX PSU from a dark corner at Microcenter. For now, one molex rail is feeding 5v to a raspi zero, while a servo controller takes way more 5v straight off the main connector. Eventually the raspi will move to 5v standby power so it can run while the rest of the layout is shut off, and one of the 12v 6-pin rails will feed a NCE Powercab.

Nothing exploded so now I need to make the raspi talk i2c to the servo controller and get some turnouts moving.


Will the Raspberry Pi run the trains? Or just provide the power?

You know what I like about French (and Italian) railway stations: They mostly still have all their quaint old goods yards and sheds (even if they aren't used), where in Britain this would all have been rationalised and the land sold off for redevelopment.


I'm against this, as abandoned rail infrastructure creates excellent anti-rail propaganda.


It night actually be cheaper to leave them be than to let the NIMBYs in.

What I like about Swiss (and Austrian) railway stations, they use their yards.


That yard ladder pains my autism but the more I look at it the more it makes sense.

Not entirely rail but close enough.

Also test of new Cat 61 phone.

Now ordinarily, a pile of saw dust isn't all that impressive but this all from the steam sawmill.

If anyone cares, posting update on the tram in Barcelona. For those unaware, QRD
>In 2004 a second gen tram was opened in Barcelona (no trams since '71)
>two systems were opened:
>one in the south reaching out into some burbs that lacked metro or train service,
>one in the north not reaching so far into the burbs and covering more parts of the city with bad coverage
>both systems run on part of one of the main thoroughfares, Diagonal avenue, which cuts diagonally (derp) through the grid pattern and crosses the city
>systems were meant to be joined together along this thoroughfare, creating a trunk line with branches
>NIMBYs are opposed, as they use that thoroughfare as an urban highway to go from the rich uptown to the city center

For 14 years we've been discussing 3,6 km of tram line which would have been an immense boon, as said thoroughfare lacks parallel rail service and bus lines on it are completely saturated. Current mayor wanted to finally get it done, got the project ready, but it didn't get through the city plenary.
That means no tram connection at least until after the next elections, and it's possible that the separatist issues will skew the vote in favor of anti-tram parties.
The arguments which we've heard over this tram connection would prolly make your brains bleed (can provide examples). It's been a pathetic first-world-problems-tier shitshow while public transport stagnates. This tram connection would have been hugely useful to make the tram actually convenient, while right now the popular southern system usually requires 2 subway transfers.
I'm actually quite saddened by this, so here I am venting my frustration. We could have had something awesome, instead the pro-car NIMBY richfags got their way once again.

Are there many businesses in the immediate area? I know when they built the line down one of the main streets in Edinburgh businesses on that street reported drastically lower footfall, and the council had to pay out shitloads in subsidies to keep them afloat. Is there anything like that at play or is it literally just NIMBYs?


The street in question is somewhat of a commercial street, however precisely the part lacking a tram line has many closed shops and isn't doing well. That part of the street has literally 8 lanes plus 2 bus lanes, and very small sidewalks.
Sounds weird that a tram would hurt businesses, here wherever a tram was built business thrive. Howver the tram lines here have only been built on large streets which previously were very traffic-oriented.


It's the disruption caused by construction that tends to keep people away while it's going on (especially if it overruns by years), but then again if that part of Diagonal is already slightly run-down that would mean the effect would be lessened, and empty units present opportunities once it's finished.


if trams could run over strips of yellow plastic instead of rails both networks would be already connected

heck every street would have its tram

even water road would lol
