Now I am curious enough to spend some extra time tyoubing.

Aside: What manhwa is the pic from?


Giggle Translate thinks that “鉄道安全” (tetsudō anzen) is the proper term for “railway safety”.

Got a JR East ad on their striving for passenger safety out of it if nothing else so far: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5edNhH097y0
And their channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCioFlMsGwVfA-uWnn0ZWo_Q

Dunno about CGI bad driver, but there's a vid of that drowsy Yamanote Line driver.

I can't help but feel like this is a perfect commentary on their clientele.


I remember that the footage, I think was for training but it got out on the loose and of course all the Japanese otaku had a field day editing it and many hilarious ways.


Leaves me wondering when was the last day he got any sleep.

Any of y'all been to the huge Amherst show near Springfield, MA? I'm thinking of taking the train up Friday, spending all day at the show Saturday, then taking the train home Saturday evening. Any other worthwhile train-related stopovers to make between Springfield and DC?


Yeah I am at the Trolley Museum booth.

Anyone got a good list and/or comparison of commonly (historically and currently) used railway signalling systems (and their ups and downs)?

That was fun. Thanks, train.


What if I told you that Amtrak 59 was led by the IC9631 yesterday?

I know it did for a fact, but no railfans got a picture of it that I can find.

Has anyone taken the WP&Y from Whitehorse, Yukon to Skagway, Alaska?

I'm thinking of flying into Yukon Airport, paying a one-way (coach from Whitehorse to Carcross, Youkon, then train through British Columbia to Skagway, Alaska), then taking the Alaska state ferry out.

Would love to hear more about any experiences, if lugging luggage along on a trip like this is practical.

I'm planning to fly from HNL -> YVR (visit relatives) -> YXY -> WP&Y to Skagway -> Alaska state ferry to Whittier or Seaward -> Alaska Railroad to ANC -> fly back to HNL

The YVR -> YXY leg is just be an award flight so I can burn some Aeroplan miles (at a surprisingly low 7500 miles one way + fees, we pay the same in miles for a 30 min interisland flight in the islands), and WP&Y does allow one-ways in each direction. I'm thinking of a rollaboard carry-on each for the 2 of us travelling? Am struggling with how to do laundry if we are carrying so little. didn't find much in the way of condo-type properties with washing machines inside


I've also thought of doing this trip backwards: HNL -> ANC -> Alaska Railroad to end of line -> coach to Carcross -> WP&Y to Skagway -> Alaska state ferry to Prince Rupert or BLI -> fly back to HNL

The very frustrating part is there are no scheduled flights between Whitehorse and Alaska, and spending endless hours in transit in between by something Greyhound is not how I'll like to spend my vacation time.

>be unfortunate enough to take Greyhound

>get head chopped off by insane passenger next to you
>criminal pleads insanity, avoids any responsibility
>gets out of jail because this cucked country is soft on crime
>ex-con legally changes name, disappears off the map
This would be funny if it didn't already happen in real life…



You cant just hop the bus from Fairbanks to Carcross, there is no Greyhound up there.

I managed a bash on it when I was working on cruise ships. It is THE most scenic railway I have ever been on. If you can afford to get up there (or get a job that takes you there) do go!

This is how I was able to do the Alaska Railroad from Fairbanks to Anchorage and back, it was great

Anyone know if the wild fires along the westcoast have affected rail companies?

Don't really wanna die of smoke inhalation because I just wanted to visit my mom.



nah its not that bad. You might feel it in your chest a bit but you wont die.


This is the guy you should remember: the German politician Heiko Maas (SPD) who was the first to faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaart

(Don't bring crazy politics to 1chan)(TRAINS OR GTFO)


Yeah, yeah, I smell what you're stepping in Fürher cat, but what I'm really interested in is your trains. You jive?


Spoiler: Both the left and the right are cucked as fuck in Germany, if the people had any sense of what's happening in Germany Merkel should be hanging in the street and kebabs promptly removed

Welcome back stasi. But then again it's not like you guys ever had free speech to begin with…(Jesus Christ, don't advocate for the murder of a politician. Serious or not, that kind of talk attracts unwanted attention)
