A humble travelling historian’s desire
Greetings to all indigeneous creatures of this board.
I am an ancient traveler on this forsaken land. I‘ve been to countless boards and numerous threads, seen such dreadful beings your minds couldn’t even begin to process. The soul purpose of my journey is to study these distant lands and the inhabitants native to this land.
Therefore I humbly ask you kind strangers to reveal your secret history and hidden treasures to this peaceful historian.

All the oldfags have died of old age (true story BTW), all the newfags have left. We are but ghosts around here... toooot-toooooooooo *creepy ghostly train horn*
We've come to the conclusion that the pole does not determine direction.
We like trains, and I'm 95% sure none of us are cool.
>the pole does not determine direction.
reported for polandphobia, poles can tell direction just fine
The history of train nerds.

n 1942 Ian Allan, then working in the public relations department for the Southern Railway at Waterloo station, decided he could deal with many of the requests he received about rolling stock by collecting the information into a book. The result was his first book, "ABC of Southern Locomotives". This proved to be a success, contributing to the emergence of trainspotting as a popular hobby in the UK.
Around about the same time, an English vicar called Wilbert Awdry was telling bedtime stories to his son Christopher about trains. Eventually these were written down and turned into books, the first being published in 1945, with Thomas the Tank Engine first appearing in 1946.
