Why is that car lettered for Northern Pacific but also sublettered for CB&Q?



"Built as dome-coach #558 by the Budd Company in 1954 for the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy for service on the Northern Pacific’s premier train, the Chicago-to-Seattle North Coast Limited, which the Northern Pacific operated in partnership with the CB&Q."

Just west of Shields on the Lower Arrow Lake, so not far away. Tough to see for the trees, which are the next thing that needs to be in that scene!

Definitely a former Milwaukee Road caboose. Color and Style match up perfectly. As for the number, your guess is as good as mine. Most likely would have been painted above the bay window. Maybe if you can get closer, you could see it?

First, it were not firearms but pneumatic guns, second, this is actually illegal, at the very least to point or shoot at people who don't pose an imminent threat to you personally, if not (this is almost surely actually) to have a gun on a railway at all, because shooting here can lead to a technogenic disaster, and third, these idiots only are known for using (or threatening with) their guns against harmless foamers, such people are usually cowards, they won't harm anyone who can pose a real threat.


> such people are usually cowards
I'm speaking of "these idiots" and not foamers of course.


Not that anyone would object to shooting certain foamers.


Do you want a Darwin award? Because that's how you get a Darwin award.


Doesn't help I have dreadlocks. The saboteur term is monkeywrencher btw. I've read a few books on monkey wrenching, mostly just because the mechanics of heavy machinery are broken down in them. Olympia has plenty of more important things to focus on than trains right now so you're all in luck. They have student protests at Evergreen, the May Day riots drama, some alt right rally. I have lots of friends who live there and so am certain these are just liberal college kids who will move on to something else. Who you really gotta watch out for is CFD. The pnw is their home base, Cascadia Forest Defense, they actually do lots of direct action things like tree sits, sabotage, vandalism, ect.

A little bit of an oopsie. JR East track inspection train derails



Bonus points: it was caught on video.


Looks like only one truck was derailed. A failure of some sort or was there a pre-existing condition on the track?



How ironic…

German long distance passenger train operator Locomore filed for bankruptcy today, after an investor withdrew.

Since December 2016, it operated one daily train between Stuttgart and Berlin.

Aside from normal investors, they also made the news by collecting 600k startup capital through crowdfunding.

They said to require around 1000 daily passengers in order to be profitable. On weekends and around holidays, this was reached easily.
During the week this proved to be more difficult, especially the commuter traffic to Frankfurt (to which the daily train fit pretty well) was weaker than expected.

Problems were also caused by the rolling stock. During the first weeks (including the christmas peak), only four cars were available, which heavily reduced profits.
Recently, the service was reduced to 4, later 5 days per week to allow better maintainance and to have the full train available for weekends.

The last train will run from Stuttgart to Berlin tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile, the similar project HKX, which is running trains between Hamburg and Cologne since 2012, is still in operation. Though they had to cancel their expansion to Frankfurt and cutting weekday service as well.

Can anyone ID this station for me?

Novosibirsk-Glavniy, unified network marking 850609 (if you meant this ID)… actually you could easily google it by the name on the terminal.

In all seriousness the Cyrillic alphabet is really not that difficult to learn

Just wanted to say that the banner images on the top of the page are not centered, i think it's because of the theme settings.


Plus one.


Plus two.


You are correct. I honestly haven't had time to fix it, but it's due to the style selectors. If anyone knows how to solve it, let me know and I'll implement it. Outside of that I'll try to troubleshoot it sooner rather than later.

Does anyone have that one picture of a Japanese train with an advertising wrap for an anime that was awkwardly placed near the gas cap of the train?

It's a thumbnail. There's barely enough pixels for the vehicle number.

Here we go


That's pedantry to a whole new level. It's the same character, on the same carriage, at what looks like the same station! What's the difference?


Look closer.
