Pretty sure that there isn't "ONE" Ireland, and that this so called "ONE" Ireland doesn't use Miles Per Hour. https://www.google.com/maps/@54.1137718,-6.3651364,3a,19.2y,327.12h,99.01t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1smgfdePHXbRu0q_xXzPQH_w!2e0!5s20110401T000000!7i16384!8i8192 Just some vandalism, possibly done...

Re: Update #875

Great update! Here's the errors I've noticed: On this page, this text feels a bit weird: http://www.rxrsignals.com/Ohio/A-K/Delta/Fg/ This is almost as pure of a Conrail installation as you'll see, still have original, lights, bell, and even gates. It should probably read (changed part in bold): Thi...

Re: Google Maps Scavenger Hunt

What kind of install is this? I always get curious about various installs along CSX lines. https://www.google.com/maps/@31.046481,-84.8896639,3a,47.8y,24.27h,89.16t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s8RF806M_zAjqIBbpMfIA5A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 This is one of the strangest signal set-ups I've ever seen: https://www....
