Not only were they built ulgy but they were also built without function in mind. Something goes wrong in a F40PH you csn take parts of it off for acess with a Grnesis nope gotta cut a hole and then weld it back up. The cab intior is cramped snd a mess, they have crap aceleration, and are not very realible. While the name Genesis might share its nsme with the Biblicle book of creation you won't find intelgrnt desighn there.

Here is the thing my opion does not matter as I neather run nore mataine them but if you ask the people who do and have also worked on F40s they will almost always agree F40s are better except for the noise. Also what kind of cab does a Genesis have?….

No, I meant the the train going slow like you thought. I thought the issue was going to be with goobers trying to pace the train blocking traffic, but it turned out that the blockage was the backup motorcade that was following the train escorted by loads of police. They were keeping pace with the train just in case something stopped the train, they'd be right there to move the casket to the hearse and continue the procession.

Anyway, here's a fairly quick sloppy edit of the one single shot I got today.

I mean, it is for me. This was the first solo trip I've ever done exclusively to see train(s). It had been years before this since I went on a train spotting trip.

Options available:

Spotting (gotta catch 'em all!): Get an Ian Allen ABC, write down loco/unit numbers, tick off all the ones you've seen until you have seen them all.

Filming/photography: Get a camera. Post pics/videos to 1chan/flickr/youtube

Volunteer at a heritage railway: This will consume all your weekends, and mostly involves hanging around with grumpy old men. Not recommended if you want an actual social life.

Build a model railway: All the fun of the real thing but without going outside.

It always irks me when I see cheap garbage like this being sold to Joe Public who doesn't know any better. Though to be fair, SOME of these bargain-basement train sets actually work decently.

It gets worse still. These are the first model trains I have seen on sale here. Ever.

can we stop posting porn? its getting dumb

 No.6519

A lot of people come here to post stuff that isn't trains. It's inevitable. Mike and I usually knock it out pretty quickly, but we have our own lives and can't monitor this 24/7. On the upside, if you're able to text US phone numbers, sending a message to (512) 953-3619 will alert us to what's going on. This number is always posted at the top of the main page underneath the new thread form. Texting us really does wonders for the quality of the board because the porn/spam/whatnot isn't left up until one of us comes by and sees it by chance.

On a sidenote, lol for thinking that a Carmen Electra photoshoot was fetish porn.

This week in Canuckland: The CP TEC (Track evaluation) train was parked near my house. The sun was setting. I felt a burning need to get photos.

The weirdest thing like that I've ever seen was meeting a local that had an old EJ&E SD38 for power, freight, and an FRA passenger test and passenger car on the rear.

I have to say that is one ugly locomotive. But the old lightweight baggage car behind it looks interesting. I can just make out the old "Canadian Pacific" near the roof line, but I can't make out the word(s) below it near the bottom edge.
