In Denmark, bumpers on cars are called cow-catchers.


Growing up in Texas, I always called them cow catchers.

“The Cassandra Crossing” could have been the trope namer for Just Train Wrong. Having locomotives do the hauling was about the only correct thing.

Despite being named “Rail Wars!”, this fan service anime has mere scantlings for the rail fan. One of these is the fictional (in our timeline) KiHa 381, an express with gas turbine power cars.

Ironically, the epic "train crashes into the station" scene from "Silver Streak" was filmed inside an airplane hangar.


That's neat.. love the movie. Some guy went and tracked down several of the locations used in the movie:

The director of Edge of Darkness envisioned intercutting scenes of nuclear flasks being moved in order to maintain a sense of tension, but understandably BR wouldn't have anything of it. So they went to a heritage railway near Leeds, where they lashed up a pair of shunters and put a shell over them to look like a mainline diesel.

The Hall of Justice from "SuperFriends" looking lice Cincinnati Union Terminal is no accident; Hanna-Barbera's parent company at the time, Taft Broadcasting, was based in Cincy.

Also, one of the most prominent proponents of preserving Cincinnati Union Terminal was former mayor Jerry Springer. Who is better known as the host of a long-running trashy daytime talk show.

In 1980 film Reds the tram was played by an Anerican too, a 1920 Brill.

(The trailer was a 1916 Asea.)


A ship can also have a caboose. This is when they galley is in a deck-mounted cabin.

In the American Hockey League, the rivalry between the Chicago Wolves and the Milwaukee Admirals is called the "Amtrak Rivalry", given that the two cities are linked by the 86-mile-long Hiawatha Service corridor.

Amtrak not only endorses this sports rivalry, but even awards a trophy to whichever of the two teams wins the most times every time they face each other over the regular season.

I remember. The struggle was real.



I'm pretty sure that the guy in the middle there is the one who just recently got canned from Amtrak in Chicago

I have no idea. I haven't been fanboying Amtrak like I used to.


is this real??


>>5937 – Yes. Incidentally, the T43 (another NOHAB product, btw) is a road switcher. So, basically, the MY and the T43 are as close to US style as could be had in Sweden.

Mind, the Wikipage on the movie says that the T43 did not actually show up.


I found the T43 image in >>5465 here:
