Potpourri #1021

Another Monday – it’s a Bank Holiday, too, but it’s strange how one doesn’t notice such things when one’s retired!

We’ll start with a couple of pictures that show why Japanese railways are strange, sorry, unique….

I can’t imagine this working on Southern Trains, or any other European railway for that matter!


And here’s an unusual passenger to add to your layout:


And a few culled from the ESNG Facebook group – thanks, guys….

April 1 redux…..  From Amtrak….


And Southeast Trains….


Not sure about this one.  It may be all too real?


Health and safety special….  The Schienenzeppelin in Berlin, June 1931. A train on the way to Hamburg passes the newly arrived rail zeppelin at Spandau main station.


Plus ca change?  A streetcar conductor in Seattle not allowing passengers aboard without a mask, during Spanish Flu Pandemic in 1918.


Track laying issues?  Another derailment coming into the fiddle yard…… (This is VIA Canada, I think, with a train of ex-UK coaches.  No wonder it derailed!)


And what to do if you’ve got a spare Kato #4 and Kato #6 – maximum speed 5mph?  A real site somewhere in Pennsylvania.
