I'm up to some no good nonsense again.

Ft. Worth is already building its part and it's to begin service next year.


I know, Texrail runs to the airport. I was talking about the proposal to build an extension of the bullet train from Dallas to Fort Worth via Arlington.


I actually haven't heard anything of this. Shows how much I pay attention.


Are they really that far apart? I'm all for rail, but a bullet train, is that necessary?


Not really, and we already have a pretty good rail service between the two. There's no point in adding high speed rail service. On top of that, Arlington pretty much hates public transit, so I don't think they'll be buying into anything like that soon. I seem to recall that they're the largest city in the US without a good public transit service. DART runs exactly one route with only four stops in the city.

Simeon Webb conspiracy theories?


Thanks, but no thanks. Making up shit about the dead is a most dishonourable practice, IMAO.


As in the Casey Jones guy?

Why don’t you put a rubber hose connected to train air over the wheel bearings? If the bearings overheat the hose will melt dumping the air stopping the train.

>>4560 – Ow. That was one really screwed journal, allright.



Back in the day it was obvious ThatDog was several steps removed from the board and that Ham was effectively grandfathered in as a mod.

I'm not saying that being a moderator should be a popularity contest, because it absolutely shouldn't, and I'm not even saying that Ham doesn't do anything positive for the community - I'm sure he deletes just as much CP and Russian/Ukranian/Acrylic spam as all the rest of you…

However, he has the following traits that I belive make him a pretty horrible moderator.
1) He is divisive in his existance and it will colour any action he takes against users.

2) He is prone to shitpost - he seems to have cut back on the anti-furry since 2010, but we still get "lmao f40ph" and frankly it's not adding much signal to the board.

3) Posts like the ones in this thread; borderline nonsense, mostly asperger's-driven mumbles about tangentially related things.

4) His longstanding feud with you, Tex, which he's (nearly) always seemingly been the instigator of and which you have broadly dismissed and moved on from, much to your credit and seemingly his frustration. Admittedly the last time this came up the (public) message posted towards him was "shape up or ship out" but still - it colours all of his future moderation actions as someone who holds grudges.
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


1.) I have never taken any action agenest any real user, just spam and porn.
2.) When was the last time I made an F40PH thread?
3.) I am putting a solution to a problem. Otis never worked in the elevator industry, and stepheson wasn't a Railroader.
4.) I helped save 1chan and I put Tex in charge of the temporary site.
5.)Not my fault.


It's not even a debate, but you have misunderstood my 3rd point - I'm not even complaining about your original idea, which may be a sound concept and might actually be original enough that you'd be granted a patent.

My point was that your individual responses are so rambling and tangential to the posts they refer to that the thread will rapidly devolve into "no that's not what I was saying, you didn't even reply to my point". This has happened repeatedly!

Anyone have links to the cgi bad Japanese train driver videos.

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.
