The dude owns Rapido Trains.

He also bought an old GM Fishbowl bus (from Calgary I think), and drove it to Toronto and repainted it like an 80's TTC bus.

Empty coal drag hit what they are thinking was a sun kink near Mattawana, PA. Sadly the news unit was NS 4001. Crew made it out with only minor injuries

Celebrating April Fools, let's have a tread dedicated to jokes and all sorts of intentional and unintentional humor on the railway and transport in general.

Asking for explanation is okay since not everyone possibly can understand the specifics which form the joke. Also the explanation or translation can be given right away like this, for example.

In case I'm really terrible at translating puns… The other way you could translate that is:

> Nothing, let it pass.

"Проехали" in Russian means both "passed by" and "nevermind".

>In this segment, unlike the circuitous and built-up segments to the south, high speeds could be achieved at relatively low cost – the existing right-of-way is nearly flat and remains straight over long stretches as it crosses the Central Valley. It also provides access to a series of cities within the I-80 corridor. However, it is shared with freight trains, limiting passenger capacity to the current 15 daily round-trips.

>The solution, then, might be to make the existing alignment passenger-only by providing freight with an alternative right-of-way. Fortunately, while there is no existing parallel railroad, there is right-of-way remaining from an earlier railroad – the Sacramento Northern, on which freight trains operated until the 1960s.


>Much of the alignment still exists between Suisun Bay and the community of Saxon, 11 miles southwest of Sacramento. With connections via the Tracy Subdivision used by freight as well as Amtrak San Joaquin trains between Martinez and Pittsburg, a new Delta crossing just east of Suisun Bay, and new right-of-way connecting to the existing right-of-way in West Sacramento,a brand new freight railroad could be built in the Sacramento Northern right-of-way, as shown in the map on the following page.

It will not happen, the long haul routes are massive subsidy programs for rural (Republican) districts. Hell, Amtrak is still required to seriously study restarting Pioneer and SD Empire Builder services every few years because those states keep demanding it.

It is interesting seeing some of the people that you see standing at the stations in the small towns. I know it's a tired cliche that Amtrak provides an important service to connect these communities by linking them to the rest of the country, but it's absolutely true and it is the only realistic way for them to get to Chicago or other big cities. There is a certain charm seeing a young man in a suit with his luggage standing at a rural station waiting for the train.
