Spotted in a Swedish magazine from 1952. This is a dial-and-pointer station indicator from a Milanese tram.


Interesting, any idea anyone, was it tachometer and time based or just a simple wind-up clock?

Haven't seen anything like this before.


Seems there were several methods.
1. An electric signal at each stop.
2. Odometer control on diesel or steam lines.
3. Manual change.

Any idea what this is on about?


"Covers the two experimental locos, in particular showing the vast amount of money poured into the British model for such a low return"

How well will they work out for JR Freight?

That thing is a apparently adorable 180 kW or so.

They both feel like a quick and easy low cost renewal solution (not helped by their financial situation I guess) considering the sunset of the DE10. That sideways cab control tho, much like its predecessors and hybrid cousin.

You may want to have a gander at those numbers my friend.

I am surprised they post advanced level 2 questions like that.

I have no idea what happened there.


"We know that the ÖBB wants to compete with AUA (airline) on the Innsbruck-Wien line. Rail already wins by ticket prices, the travel time is the only advantage for flying. But things seem to change here. Passengers were surprised when a faulty passenger information display showed 1195 km/h. This inspired out cartoonist…"

In August, 1967, two freight trains collided at Shinjuku station, resulting in a fire that ate 72 tons of jet fuel, and an all-day shutdown.

The cause, IIUC, was driver distraction and slow braking action.

Those of you that have watched driver’s-eye videos from Japan, have very likely often heard a reminder of this incident, namely the tic-toc-tic-toc sound heard from the ATS ringing ‘upcoming stop’ until the train actually stops.



Not to be a troll or anything but…
72 tons is like one or two tank cars and…
hurr durr did it melt steel beams?


Really just one tank car.

A good average is 30 tons per empty car and 100 tons loaded. At least for hoppers and tanks. Autoracks and pigs are stupid light even while loaded. Like only 30-40 tons.


No, but it gave JFK autism on the moon. Having said that, I might be getting my crazies mixed up.

Someone has actually done something for those that want to play commuter train driver.

1 post and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


it definitely looks interesting, but I don't know if I'd be will to spend ten dollars on it. It just seems kinda like a phone game.



I do play it on my tablet as well as the desktop (great travel game!), 1chan followed the alpha and beta testing for a while so maybe we just have a soft spot for the game. I was more than happy to give them my ten of dollars, but you could always wait until a sale pops up.

You could give GMOD a try if you don't already have it, it's incredibly fun for multiplayer operations. You have to have a lot of patience though. Pic related is my model of an FEC Mountain, took about 2 weeks to fully finish.


>One of the most flexible games ever made
>Uses it to build trains

1chan, please don't ever change. I mean it. I love you fellow nerds.
