    Lineside Photographers At Gala's

    Who said anything about magazines? But yea, you're right. Most magazines would rather "tamper" with the images themselves prior to publishing. :lol: Photography is such serious business! :roll: I sure am glad I only take photos for my own personal enjoyment and satisfaction.

    Not hard to fix. Took less than 30 seconds to make the orange disappear.

    Dutch commuter trains get emergency 'toilet bags'

    I call BS as well, as most airplanes equipped with an ejection seat also require the use of a flight suit, which would make it impossible to use one of those urinal bags in the first place...

    Signalling Centres...Good or Bad??

    Thanks for the info, tried to PM you so as not to drag this off topic, but your inbox is full. I didn't know BNSF has moved things away from Fort Worth, when did all that occur? Very interesting!

    Signalling Centres...Good or Bad??

    Could you clarify "many US railroads" please? I only know of one US railroad that has centralised then later de-dentralised their control centres: CSX.

    The North really is grim

    So you deliberately posted something inflammatory (a lie at that) to get people to argue? That's called being a troll.

    Best post-1998 built rolling stock for comfort

    I have limited experience but I shall offer my opinions. I was last in the UK in 2004. EMU: The only post-'98 electric units I rode were 460s and 375s. I much prefer the 460, even though the 375 I had was very new. Slammers won my heart immediately, however. I'm glad I got to experience them...

    Chatsworth (USA) Collision Report

    Ideally, there should be an "exit" signal at every station. But the way this piece of railway was constructed, the passing siding (loop) was divided into two blocks separated by one set of intermediate signals. Southbound trains stopping at the station are able to see this signal, northbound...

    Any ideas where this is?

    Looks like the northern throat tracks of Köln Hauptbahnhof, Cologne, Germany.
