It took me a long time (10–15 seconds) to get a clue on the odd-looking sleepers/ties just ahead.

I like that station indicator!

Why there would be a pantograph on a totally ordinary WaMu goods car, I do not know. But there it is.

Wallpaper, ho!


I give up, what is it?


>>2776 – They are, as far as I can tell, the remains of a set of points. My guess is that in the past the platform back loop diverged (or was intended to diverge) further out on the bridge than it does now.


It could be the remains of a derail rather than a full switch.


>>2784 – Whether the loop was once longer or there was a trap there, the bridge would have had to have be wider to accommodate it.

So I’m wondering, was it ever wider than it is now? I have no idea which line this is, so finding out will not be easy at all – assuming it is even documented on the Web.


>>2785 – OK, I finally thought of sending the thread through Giggle Translate and hope to get something understandable back.

Now, if I did understand correctly what I got back, this is in fact the new Yamashita station on the Joban line, and the oddity on >>2720 is there for future expansion. Should have figured it out; the timbers looked far too new…

Anyone looking for a Toy to play with?


I already have a X CP M19 Its got winter wheels on the back. Need to trade them for some regular wheels as I don't plan to run it in winter.

You do not often see an EL blowing off steam, do ya?


me but rather have the VW one or make one out of a junked Delorean
Railorean LOL


>>2863 – AFAIC, a Jaguar XJ-S loose-top would be cool, too.


Is that for steam heating?


I believe this is the steam engine behind the electric locomotive, look at the position of the steam cloud.


>>2871 – If I retranslated Giggle Translate’s utterings correctly, the EF58s did have oil-fired steam generators for heating. ETH was a late addition, and only some units got ETH equipment. #61 is not one of these, according to jp.wikipedia.

ION, #61 is mostly retired now. Cracks were found in the frame, and repairs were considered uneconomical. One can probably still spot it running light, but its hauling days are over.

As you can tell, the GE999 project is a bit more than vapourware.


Just a reminder to everyone, please keep all of your images SFW. Just because it's not sexual doesn't mean it's SFW.

Warning – Low bridge!


Less than 4 feet! I wonder what the purpose of the bridge is? Animal Crossing?


I was all ready to say "it's clearly a pedestrian path" and then I realized that four feet is stupid low.

Maybe it is, though. Maybe Willy Wonka moved his factory to Japan and this is in the Oompa Loompa's housing district.


Four foot is about average height for Japan, isn't it?

I was going to make a joke about what happens if a vehicle hits it, but the gauge is probably wrong.

A quick pictorial explanation of what happened when a JR Central N700 trainset derailed earlier this month.


Still high enough for the average Jap to go under without crouching.

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.

Spotted this ‘anteater’ while looking around.

Oh, and below, for a short while, is a wax-nostalgic thread about the JNR 103 EMU, which was mustered off the Osaka Loop Line on October the third:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/103_series – For the record, the type is now in its sixth decade of operation. Wonder how many will be running in 2064…

An attack of Teh Cutez. Something about this perhaps being refugees from the Kiso Forest Railway. My words, not theirs.

Seems that fhe first railroad to run dual-mode buses in regular traffic will be a tiny one on Shikoku, the Asa Coastal Railway, whose only line is ca. 8,5 km long.
