What's the history of 1chan and why did they kick trains off 4chan?


As far as I know there are still train threads on /n/. I just happened along this site on my adventure of every chan made and active. Welp, off to the next one


moot deleted the '/n/ (Trains)' board off 4chan back in ancient pre-historic dinosaur times (2004), so thatdog made his own trains board, with blackjack, and hookers. then after about 10 years the PHP rusted into dust and thatdog ran out of whale oil to keep it running, so the current owners took over with a vichan fork.

1chan was the first chan I went on.. irc I found it through a google image search around 2007(??). Up to that point i'd never heard of 4chan but found it when I started systematically searching 2chan, 3chan, etc hoping i'd find more train pix gold. I stopped going there in 2011. Stopped in for visit in 2016 for a few minutes and haven't gone back. I don't miss it.


'cause furries, my man. :(

Long time no see. I'm still around and riding them rails. Tho not as much as I used to, I have an apartment in southern California now. But its trackside and watching trains roll by day after day made me antsy and I just caught one on a whim. Anyways I'm in Longview WA and I know theres a lime that runs through here but can't remember which. I'll probably hitch hike out of here if I can't figure it out. Its cold and wet and have plenty of friends in either direction that'll house me. Pic from Roseville CA after getting off that train I caught on a whim.


Riding in winter takes some fucking stones. I'd head home and chill in the warm.


Be careful, you can slip easily. The ice makes it tough. Don't end up like strobe.


I only catch stopped trains! I'm more worried about the temperature. But also I've ridden from Portland OR to Bakersfield CA two years in a row arriving in CA on Christmas Eve both times while on my way to visit family. The coldest points always being from Oakridge OR to Klamath Falls OR, always get absolutely covered in snow there.


Also I ended up hitching out, and will hitch back to Portland to catch a southbound train from there, IM headed to LA, typically leaves around 4-6pm, gets to Eugene around 9-12, typically I sleep and wake up in Dunsmuir CA early morning, getting to Roseville around 4-6pm then finally arriving in Bakersfield around 3-4am usually but of course it varies. Only things I really hate about riding in winter is good and water freezing.

My GrandFather, my Dad and all my uncles worked for Erstern Pacific/UP all their lives. Railroads are dangerous places. My Uncle Albert was killed at work when a box car door fell on him, my dad almost got killed when an idiot mechanic defeated the deadman switch and the engine crashed into his office, destroying the WP concrete offices and his workmate got accidentally COUPLED—-Joe was alive to call his wife and kids and to dictate his will. He died 41seconds after they decoupled him

Lessons Learned:
1. Always Eye 👁 Ball ⚽️ the Rollbys
2. Never go under the cars to cross
3. Do not walk between gaps in train cars
4. To test if a train is about to leave, throw a pebble against a Tank Car. The customer will lose money on gasoline tank cars because gas ⛽️ will spoil after 30 days!!! Filled tank cars have priority.
5. Never completely close a box car—closed box cars get locked!!!
6. Never hop trains drunk or stoned—-wait until you are onboard.
7. Never break a seal on a sealed box car—-that’s a FELONY!!!
8. Try to carry a camera and stand with you. FOMIES rarely get hit with Tresspassing charges.
RIP Strobe Dah HOBO!!!

That is one of the dumbest things I've ever read.

It's almost as dumb as
>Joe was alive to call his wife and kids and to dictate his will. He died 41seconds after they decoupled him
But not quite.


Train hopping is not something that we encourage on 1chan. We tend to have a focus on safety because several of us have worked on trains at some point. This is not the forum for sharing tips on how to catch trains. Please don't do this again.

1. Don’t die.
2. Don’t make others die.
3. A good shift is when everyone gets to return home to their families. Make all shifts good shifts.

Anyone take the train in Taiwan? Am going on a trip am wondering what to expect.

Just from reading about it, I'm going to get a huge kick many of the trains are the same models as they have in Japan.

Taiwan train derailment in Yilan County kills at least 18.


Maybe you should reconsider if you are going to travel in Taiwan after this accident.


Why should Anon1 do so? Are railcrashes that frequent on Taiwan?


Taiwan is like visiting China but everyone is nice and the country is relatively clean, but not autistic like the Japanese

Fuck no am I going to reconsider going there


According to the news the Limited Express "Puyuma" sets were 5-years old and made by Nippon Sharyo so its not really suspect. What they do suspect is something on the track or maintenance issues.



>A spokesman for Taiwan Yilan District Court told Reuters the driver told his bail hearing he switched off the system himself to boost the train’s power when it had slowed down on an earlier stretch of the journey.

>Reuters was not able to reach the train driver, You Zhen-zhong, 48, for comment. He was granted bail of T$500,000 ($16,167) and barred from leaving Taiwan after being detained for the investigation.

A fire broke out in an InterCity Express travelling between Köln and Frankfurt yesterday, 2018-10-12. No deaths, five light injuries among 510 passengers.


News video:


not bad

forgot my marshmallows though


>utterly disintegrated, including the frame

And then they say aluminium is just as good as steel, just lighter…


WTH was do flamable?



It is curious. All i've found so far is a report that it was a "technical fault" in the last car and that the fire spread to the adjoining car. I'll assume something went wrong on the HV side of things.. traction motor failure? ..or maybe something in an electrical cabinet? ..burning electrical insulation?
