Re: Signals getting damaged/destroyed

Sorry... this is not a video, but it fits the subject of this post. Not sure where this is located... saw this on a Facebook page I follow. Hard to believe that the signal is standing. Not only did the truck open the gate mechanism, it also broke off the counterweights... the can be seen lying on th...

It was done by Aerosmith for the 1978 movie Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which had a plot based on several Beatles songs.

Re: Your favorite covers of songs

Absolutely the best one in my book... Disturbed's cover of The Sound of Silence. Originally done by Simon & Garfunkel. You young ones may have to Google the original version if you have never heard it (man... I'm getting old!) I can listen to this over and over. Funny thing is, I'm not really a heav...

Agreed... the speed for the curve should have been 30. It appears at this point the train hit the curve at track speed and didn...

Re: BNSF Bellingham/ Sumas Subdivision Upgrade Thread

Also nearby, what is this supposed to be? It appeared after the new signals were put in. Is it some type of artwork or something? :Confused: https://goo.gl/maps/QZiLvNvgjqt If I had to take a guess... that is a temporary signal? It appears the road was widened or redesigned recently (with the insta...

Re: BREAKING NEWS!! Major Amtrak Derailment in Washington!

It is obviously too early to speculate on what happened... but I read one report that said the train was doing 81 MPH when it hit that curve. Max track speed is supposed to be 79. There is another report saying the train hit something on the track. Thoughts & prayers to the people affected by this i...

Danny Harmon is great! He narrates the promos for one of the local news stations here, and has been doing so for 30+ years. :TUP2:
Thanks for the recommendation... I just subscribed to Danny.
