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.

1chan will be down for maintenance on Sunday September 24th. The maintenance will last from 12-18 hours. The site should go offline around 12 AM EST.

Unfortunately the interruption in service is unavoidable and is due to a data center migration. During the migration 1chan will be inaccessible. No data should be lost during the move.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to leave them in this thread.


You mean 24th?


Went ahead and updated it, thanks!


Looks like it's all finished.

Thanks for your collective patience!

Street 'art' vandals paint Union Pacific engine to look like a tiger. Both people in the freight graffiti world and railfan world are angry. The graffiti writers are mad because painting engines is one of the most obvious no no's. It just makes doing graffiti at that spot harder and crack downs more often. Railfans mad for obvious reasons. This street art collective are the same ones responsible for all those Donald Trump "has no balls" statues that popped up everywhere. And Bum Fights, yeah same people, they're political now I guess. Pic only semi related, just a picture I took in kc with graffiti in the background

You gotta admit tho, it looks fuckin dope

Railroads ought to paint more engines in crazy-ass schemes like this.

>does it cover up reporting marks, or anything else necessary for the proper functioning of the equipment?
>does it cover up fallen flag logos, or any other markings of historical significance?

If no, does anyone really give a shit?
Or to play Devil's Advocate, you could argue 'broken window theory', i.e., letting minor crimes go unpunished emboldens criminals and enables greater crimes.

>the same ones responsible for all those Donald Trump "has no balls" statues

Hadn't heard about this until now. So they're tryhard edgelords.
>And Bum Fights, yeah same people
And for the sake of the ignorant, this group of people does what, exactly?


It does look pretty sweet, but it does cover reporting marks. I think it should be patched. Regardless of artistic worth it doesn't deserve to be there. However I feel that if proper permission was received, this would make quite the good addition to a railroad museum, possibly as a traveling piece.

The videos feature teenagers and homeless men…fighting and attempting amateur stunts in exchange for money, alcohol, and other incentives.

the lowkey problem with this is that pretty much everything under-frame has its maintenance history or last service date painted on it, and they pretty much obliterated all of that

So why wouldn't we start the first RZD thread on the new 1chan?

As usual: I provide you with stuff, you provide me with questions and topics for discussion on the subject. Something like this basically.

Well I hope 1524 is satisfied with my as always overly complicated and boring answer.

> Long train is long

Oh, really? And here I am with >>4199 a 14-car double-deck train with one thousand three hundred sixty seats (that's the world record for the regular train as far as I'm concerned)…

*being sarcastic of course. If I would be really snobby about number of cars than there will come USA to crush my ego under their 32-ton axle load. Still we have longer passenger trains than them:)


>Still we have longer passenger trains than them:)

Longer bread lines too… I kid!





I really like these two pictures!

Fantastic info here btw. While I may not comment often, your Russian train threads are a source of interest to me. My curiosity also extends to Russian far east, from about Lake Baikal to the Kamchatka Krai region. Beautiful country around there.

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.

I love that remark on how Uzui has 0 passengers per day figure so to hell with barrier free! It doesn't get passengers but bloody hell it's a long line that's closing.

Also, ??? Toblerone Kintetsu train makes it to print, among others.

>>4330When is the Cotton Belt going to be built? Is it true that it could reach Murphy and Wylie if they opt in? Is it true that Dallas is building a subway, and if it is why did the article show it having like 5 stops? Why even build a subway with only 5 stops? Will they eventually expand it?


Sorry I didn't mean to greentext I'm new. Just two more questions, whats the percentage chance of Texas High Speed Rail between Dallas and Houston actually happening anywhere near the time they're claiming? And what about that Medium speed rail project between Dallas and Fort Worth?


File: 1505663962284.jpg (2.98 MB, 3024x4032, IMG_20170913_231722.jpg)

I haven't heard about the Cotton Belt project going to Wylie or Murphy.

The D2 subway project is projected to only have five stops because it's not designed to be a standalone subway project. It's a realignment of probably the Green and Orange lines in order to alleviate congestion in the existing corridor downtown. As it is, ALL trains are going on that same stretch through the Central Business District. If anything goes wrong in that stretch from Northwest to Southeast junctions, it impacts the entire system. No bueno.

I'm not privy to that kind of information about the Texas High Speed Rail project, and haven't heard anything about another rail project between Dallas and Fort Worth. Seems kind of redundant, honestly.


Thanks my man. Do you think the Coton belt extension is a good idea?


We'll see if it happens period.. If it does, it will be quite a while. If construction doesn't start next year like they claim, then don't hold your breath.
