Happy 20th Birthday 4chan. I traveled to Fremont, CA to meet up with some dear friends and family and found out that the the Niles Canyon Railway was doing a steam excursion to commemorate the Bronco Billy Film Festival where they were showcasing silent-era films that were shot in Bay Area at the turn of the century so I booked a last-minute ride aboard it.

Will dump my album and go over some history of the railroad and its equipment below.

i'm an avid watcher of people who enjoy vintage railway stuff, you guys are like unique in a cute way.

Last April, a company called Dreamstar Lines announced plans for an overnight service between Los Angeles and San Francisco, in effect, restoring Southern Pacific's Lark service, the overnight equivalent of the more famous Coast Daylight, which ceased service in 1968.

What we know:

>the train would run between Los Angeles Union Station and San Francisco's 4th & King Street Caltrain station
>rolling stock will consist of streamliner cars built in the 1940s and 1950s
>actual train consist would be a locomotive, 5-6 sleeper cars, and a lounge car serving drinks and "tavern food" (idk what that would entail)
>the train would run on a ten-and-a-half hour schedule, departing around 10pm and arrive at its final destination at 8:30am
>Tickets will be in the $300-$1000 (the minimum is slightly higher than the current price for a private room on Los Angeles-Oakland on Amtrak's Coast Starlight at $284)
>there will be no coach service, sleeper class only
>the company hopes to begin operations by Summer, 2024
>the project is far enough along that negotiations with Metrolink and Union Pacific for right of way have already started

The most detailed sources I could find

>it's likely usable coast daylight service will exist soon

It literally takes more time to go from from Oakland to LA by rail now on the Coast Starlight than it the Coast Daylight did from SF to LA with steam engines 80 FUCKING YEARS AGO.

Amtrak service is also unambiguously utter garbage and their trains have about as much visual appeal as CWC so it's not even worth it for luxury experience.

Neither of those is LUXURIOUS though, which is the main advantage of sleeper trains. The experience itself is a treat.

It was a camera that was made in 2012 if memory serves and unfortunately it just fucking sucks. I've tried customizing the settings to make it higher quality and they either just come out worse or the shots take forever to take capture and I basically can only take stills.

Yeah, I always end up dripping, either sweat or soaking rain or both. And I do believe there's some truth in that, especially the warming up part. I do very much remember being slow when starting out and that upset me much, so I always gave it all I had. Soon I was actually fast. Next thing the knee issues started. Those became crippling eventually and pain was the new limiting factor. Now there's hip issues and other shit too and I consider myself to be in a detrained state. Not all the way back to slow but you know ...
It's just a load of shit. So for anyone starting out: Take it slow, improve slow. Do stretch. Do responsible strength training. Put rest days in between if your schedule somehow allows. A volleague of mine simply takes the bus every other day. Try to hard and it might eventually backfire.

Only the richest people (who can afford the Couture) will start using it, it is only a tool to boost property values instead of getting people places, hell, even the U busses (40U, 44U, and 49U) are a preferable alternative because they are way faster at getting people across town.
