I am angry. Angry about trains. And I want answers.

I live in a town in rural Oregon, and I am currently typing this at 3:01 AM. Go ahead, ask me why I'm up at 3:01 AM.

>Why are you up at 3:01 AM, OP?

Well /n/, I'll tell you why. Every night, and I mean every goddamn night, your train conducting faggot friends roll through my town at precisely 2:45, and they LAY ON THE FUCKING HORN. For the life of me, I can't tell why they do this. I'm assuming it has to do with not wanting to turn the occasional drunk indian asleep on the tracks into a fine red mist, but let's face it, Geronimo picked the BNSF to be his bed for that evening, he drank too much fire water to be awoken by any decibel level anyway, and the Great Spirit picked him to repaint the front car. Run over a whole tribe of ugly natives, just don't wake me up.

You know, in a way it's nice because I know that whether you're black or white, rich or poor, male or trainsexual genderfluid pterodactyl, you're going to get woken up by the Gay Nigger Express if you live here. It brings the community together and we can all wake up and watch Dr. Phil reruns and talk about them at the water cooler at lunch when we're all tired as shit the next day. Mind you, I live nowhere near the fucking train tracks so I can only imagine how much life sucks for the people that do. If I went nuts and started murdering train engineers, I would claim temporary insanity due to sleep deprivation and get off scot-free.

My grandpa told me this joke when I asked why his parents had so many kids;

They lived next to railroad tracks and a train came by every morning at 5am blasting its horn.
Too early to get up, to late to go back to bed.

Are ponchos worn by men too? I think they look effay as fuck, but mostly find pictures of qts wearing them. They look simplier and more useful by not being too hot and keeping your whole body dry.

If budget is not a concern, buy a whole kit from Shower Pass and go full waterproof.
https :// www .showerspass .com

Or, if you're on a budget, just buy one of their pants and use any waterproof hiking jacket and waterproof hiking shoes.
I live in Cascadia and it pours for more than 160 days per year here. The waterproof, breathable pants + waterproof hiking jacket + waterproof hiking shoes will get you dry under anything other than a storm.

>Musk’s venture came out of a desire to solve traffic congestion in major cities. The company has a long-term goal of bringing down costs in tunnel construction, enabling cities to build intricate networks running 30 tunnels deep underground. These tunnels could support traditional roads, metro rail, or even vacuum-sealed hyperloops.

Hey idiot. I'm from New Jersey. We have our LRVs (they were literally the last streetcars, we used the streetcars for 40? or so years before we upgraded them to LRVs and now Super LRVs). This works, it does all of this, and unlike your borderline autistic rants, it is practical and cheap.

The LRV to SLRV model is proven, scales well, and cheap to set up. Please stop pushing the metro meme, even Knki Sharyo makes a metro that can also be a LRV that can also be a streetcar, Bombardier does, hell, Alstom does, spoiler alert unless its super narrow like the first generation midwestern systems the sheer weight of a dedicated 700VDC or greater makes it useless for all but the larger cities. Please stop being autistic and someone who has clearly never dealt with planning or America.

Your posts are a damn cancer and you need to stop and get the hell out.

PATH is a typical heavy rail train. PATH is the smallest US heavy rail system, and the power PATH uses alone was almost something (and hell it DID go bankrupt the rail system that built it, and if you don't think the US abandons rail, the PA train cars that became the core of the New England rail system say hi. Heavy rail cars simply do not make sense for 90% of applications, and mind you, PATH was in hyper dense New Jersey/New York. I could in theory see Seattle upgrading to dedicated heavy cars by 2030 or so, and MAX cars are so damn huge and heavy they might as well be heavy rail, they are bizarre little DMUs
>>
>>1075793
Also I was wrong, PR has a smaller heavy rail system, and THAT is why heavy rail makes no damn sense for start ups unless they were going to start with the airport. If you aren't building an Airport to Downtown link (which will get hits just from tourists alone) then you could have saved a LOT of money and effort by building lighter rail cars.

Somewhere on the other side of the globe, we are melting Edition.

Post your rides, post photos of riding, tell us about the ride. Even trainer rides are allowed!

I'll start off with a cautionary tale. I've always ridden with just one spare tube (aside from all day affairs) with the reasoning that if I had more flats then I'd just patch them as I went.

What this did not anticipate was a grass patch FULL of fucking goatheads, which ruined both of my tubes utterly and completely.

So yeah always carry two spares folks.

Anyone here gone full autism and started making their own tracks? I use code 100 nickel silver but it seems like they only make straight switches.

I have a switch from the 70s/80s that is curved code 100 that would worked, but worried about building it in and having the switch motor fry and trying to find a replacement. Should I make my own switch or modify the layout to be straight, or throw caution to the wind with an old switch?

Private property is a spook. I highly doubt that sprayers would give a flying fuck if you sprayed stuff on their cars or houses (if they even have those).
Unless graffiti cover up windows or other functional parts of a vehicle or building, there is absolutely no reason that they have to be cleaned up. Unless you're living in Mexico, where they are used by drug dealers and other criminal gangs to mark their territory.
