Cool, just post trains and train accessories and you'll fit in nicely

If you didn't like the Bombardier Acelas, well, you won't have them to kick around much longer.

So, what do we think, folks?


I actually can't wait to see these.

CP got a new scoopin' doodle and was kind enough to store it near my house.

In all likelihood? Nothing. "Do not hump" is just a suggestion in my book.


In this case, they probably don't want a poorly retarded cab slamming into a string of cars at 10MPH and shaking electronics.


It's not really the electronics that would get damaged, but more the mechanical components that could get destroyed. Just the engine is something that you don't want getting slammed into an abrupt stop at 4 mph. Because we all know that 4 mph is the maximum safe coupling speed and that cars NEVER EVER hit harder than that.

4 mph is also a pretty rough coupling if you've ever felt it, so just imagine what actually happens when you're pulling pins at about 6 mph and they pick up some speed in the track. I've literally seen cars JUMP off the bolster and fall back in.


In most of the EU, railroads have long stopped doing fying shunting.


Because they truck most everything or run unit trains. Kicking cars is mostly safe, very efficient, and fun.

Has anyone bought Rolling Line? How good is it without a VR headset? The price is very tempting.

pretty barebones, not everything on the "main" layout is open for customizing yet, but shows lots of promise. it's literally a model railroad simulator and that's pretty much what it delivers.

Yesterday, I found out that Railway Empire got some new DLC. It's set in 19th Century Mexico, and you are advised by General (and future President) Porfirio Díaz. There's also new locomotives like this double-ended Fairlie.

Been so long since I've played Railway Empire, though; I've been forgetting to build maintenance depots at the stations and supply towers on the lines more than a few times. But I'm getting the hang of it.

hello, sorry to bump this thread, but I was thinking of picking up either Transport Fever (With Soviet mod for П36 goodness) or Railway Empire.

Which one of these plays closest to Railroad Tycoon 3? I used to play the hell out of that game and I was thinking about a modern replacement. However, the era I'm most interested in is 1940s/Transition Era (US and So0viet mainly). Which one would be better for that?

Thanks 1chan, keep the trains alive


Railway Empire plays like Railroad Tycoon 3 but with a tech tree and block signals. It goes right up to without including the transitional era; the only diesel in the game is an E-unit equivalent that serves as the 'ultimate technology' express engine.

I haven't played Transport Fever so I really can't say, but if it's anything like its predecessor, Train Fever, then it plays like a shallower, clunkier, 3-D Transport Tycoon. Benefit of the doubt: It may have improved since I played (pirated) one of the early releases.

I’m bored on a train. Can you tell where?

I think you're on to something. Those towering, bleak-looking concrete structures would be the LA County Jail, which is right by the rail line.

Where's your Primeco phone?


We weren't rich like that back then. My dad had a pager, and man at the time I thought that was top notch.



oh god, pagers…

I went to Japan and saw a lot of trains. Here are some of them.

Great use of the siding for advertising..


My wife and I are considering a trip to Japan just because we can get there so cheaply. Does anyone have recommendations for guides because there is no way in hell either one of us can wrap our head around the moonspeak and we'd really like to avoid the language barrier issues.

I gotta get my fix with high speed trains. I got a slight taste of it a short while ago and now I have a speedlust that can only be satisfied by bullet trains. Since Texas won't be getting one for a few years at best, I gotta go to Japan.

In my opinion… Don’t sweat it. English is sufficient for touring Tokyo and Osaka and it will only get easier as Japan continues to prepare for Olympics tourists. We have made several successful trips now without any formal language preparations.

>>5771 – If I understood things correctly, the Evangelion 500 is to become the Hello Kitty 500.

>>5774 – According to the museum’s web and the Wikipedia, it is KuRo 381-11, a driving trailer with second-class seating, used by JNR and JR Central on the Shinano express service.

Oh yes, my train. The one on the left. Sexy 68 propelling mk3s. Sounds good purring along. We've just left Banbury

Stray shit I found on YouTube, in light of an actual quality thread.

Sorry if I am doing a repeat.

CP train crews were on strike for a single day last week after CP tried to push a contract that started with "we can change anything we want in this later, unilaterally"
I think I may have found a tiny protest.


Great picture!

Sometimes i'm amazed at what management tries to pull.. and sometimes i'm not.


Look at that mountain of sand!
