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.
