When did you start browsing /n/? Not 4chan as a whole, but /n/ specifically.

I think I started browsing /n/ in 2012.

I just want to say that I love all my /n/ frens. No reason, I'm just happy this place exists. I love all the amazing info and pics that get posted. The first-hand accounts of different tansports. The trainfags, boatfags, the planefags, even the bikefags even though I don't much care for bikes. I even like the car trolls and how they get btfo by our collective autism.
I have no one in my life to talk to about this stuff because most people just dgaf. I love sharing my own pics and stories, and seeing them appreciated.
/n/ may be slow as balls, but it's unironically one of the best boards on 4chins,and definitely my favourite.
So here's to all my /n/ frens.

Back by popular demand, ITT we discuss the greatest electrified railroad operation in world history. The proven corporate conspiracy to dismantle and abandon this operation, largely perpetrated from within the company itself by its own top-level officials, is one of the greatest crimes against humanity ever conceived and makes the Great American Streetcar Scandal look like amateurish in comparison.

Gone before its time, but not forgotten, the Milwaukee Road's Pacific Coast Extension lives on in the minds of all who encounter it. This thread is dedicated to the men and women who built and maintained this system, and the photographers who filmed and preserved this unique operation for posterity.

Something literally no one on /n/ can refute

People use cars because it is usually the most convenient way for them to get around. They use it because it is what is easier for them in the long run. It is only politicians who hinder progress away from not using this, just come up with some bullshit name for them. I take a bus and it's the fuckin worse, I'm getting a car the first chance I get. Like everything now it's another buzzword that helps you get off on the smell of shit on your bike seat. It's funny how most you are American too isn't it? With a single brain cell to spare can you see the reason for your shared autism. Not everyone can be a fixie bike grafting faggot like you. Sperg harder niggers.

People weren't meant to live in social groupings greater in size than a couple hundred people. Everything past a village you only occasionally leave is flying in the face of human nature.
If we are living unnatural lifestyles, we might as well try to be efficient and effective about it instead of making sprawling monuments to human greed which stretch out 100km from every city of note.

Public transportation will never get significantly better in the US. It's fucking hopeless. We're too attached to our fucking cars that we deny any improvement to our lives that we come across. Public transportation has been getting worse and worse except the exception that is NYC.

This bullshit attitude is going to bite us in the back in the future.

WFH is a good recruitment tool. People will take less pay to have a job that allows them to work remote at least part of the time.

I work in tech support. We don't have enough seats in the office to have everyone work in the office every day. WFH allows us to recruit people who live up to 3 hours from the office. Kumar in Bangalore won't replace us because people with tech problems want to talk to Americans.

There is not a single example of effective public transportation anywhere in America besides perhaps Seattle which is literally just an extension of Vancouver Canada’s system. Look at the MBTA in Massachusetts; the government is too incompetent to get the job done and always will be.

It's an excellent recruitment tool. It just doesn't help much if 95% of the jobs don't allow you to work remotely even if there's no reason for you to be physically needed at the office. I've been interviewing for a bunch of jobs lately and their responses to questions about their remote working policy are usually along the lines of "few days a month at maximum if you absolutely have to because you need to be home for something like a plumber". I'd much rather do majority of my working from home as it's much more effective when I don't have to be in a noisy room with shitty air quality and a bunch of other people.

Proto-HSR

Talking about it from an infrastructure perspective; i think some pre-WWII air-line railroads would qualify for a "proto-HSR" label. Take for example the Lackawanna Cut-Off, opened in 1911. Full grade separation, very gentle curves and gradients and built with little care for local traffic.
>>
There even were HSR steam locomotives back in the day.
>>
>>1286308
In terms of Japanese HSR the timeline goes something like this.
The JGR C51 Class was the first foray into higher speed rail.
After that would be the Asia Express Pashina Class for the southern Manchurian railroad. Then what followed would be the JNR C62 class that took over the Tsubame services in mainland Japan. What followed would be the private company Odakyu with their 3000 series being the actual direct predecessor to the shinkansen. Afterwards JNR expermiented with their 151 series EMU and eventually the idea that using EMUs for high speed rail was feasible we got the 0 Series we all love and know today.
Pic related the shinkansen could of ended up as a super aesthetic Hudson whyte steam loco.

The Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad has been running steam continuously for almost 130 years. It turned directly into a heritage railroad when parent company Rio Grande let it go. The railroad still runs daily scheduled service for part of the year as well, but switches to occasional excursion runs in the snowy season.
