http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salekhard%E2%80%93Igarka_Railway

>The 1,524 mm (5 ft) broad gauge Salekhard–Igarka Railway, („S„‚„p„~„ƒ„„€„|„‘„‚„~„p„‘ „}„p„s„y„ƒ„„„‚„p„|„Ž, Transpolyarnaya Magistral - "Transpolar Mainline") also referred to variously as Railroad of Death, Road of Death, and Dead Road, is an incomplete railway in northern Siberia. The railway was a project of the Soviet Gulag system that took place from 1947 to 1953. Construction was coordinated via two separate Gulag projects, the 501 Railroad beginning on the River Ob and 503 Railroad beginning on the River Yenisey, part of a grand design of Joseph Stalin to span a railroad across northern Siberia to reach the Soviet Union's easternmost territories.
>The planned route from Igarka to Salekhard measured 806 miles (1,297 km) in length. The project was built mostly with prisoner labour, particularly that of political prisoners,[1] and thousands perished.[1][2]

Hello 1chan, its been a while. I'm looking for some advice on detailing Walthers cars. I have 3 Consists I'm trying to detail.

I have a 13 Car Brodaway Limited Consist, a 10 Car Superliner Consist, and a 10 Car Amfleet/Viewliner consist.

What I am looking for is quick fixes to improve the overall look of the cars. They are all decaled, the Broadway consist has all its Grab Irons installed (I won't be doing that to any other cars....ever, just to hell with that).

One tip I found was on the Superliner cars, to paint the sides of the strike plates silver, but is this something that carry's over to say the Broadway Limited cars (which are set around 1953-56)? What other quick painting, decaling, or other small things can be done to make these trains stand out.

Also, the Horse-Drawn Streetcars. I've been there many times, but this was the first time I rode it. What you have to do is show up several minutes before the park opens to watch the daily opening ceremony, then RUN to where it's parked just inside the entrance. It only runs in like the early morning hours before the crowds really get bad. There's no elaborate fast pass or reservation set-up for this. It's just first come, first serve.

I always wondered what those tracks were for. Between that and the steam tour, I have some must do's next time I go back to Orlando.

Related: The Hyatt Grand Cypress Hotel in Orlando had a shortlived trolley line that went around the grounds in the late 1980s. They kept the streetcars in a barn on site until the mid 2000s and the tracks were still visible until the late 2000s.

This sort of reasoning always puzzled me. Why would swearing somehow affect, either positively or negatively, any argument? I understand certain fools might somehow automatically reject any argument presented with curse-words; but, likewise, most people will automatically reject any argument they find disagrees with their pre-existing notions, curse-words or not.

Ueno-Akihabara section of the Tokyo central connecting line in aerial from 1936. It seems that land had been cleared for an eventual addition of a further two-tracks to the viaduct already, though by 1941, this had not yet been built, presumably due to the war. God I love historic aerial photography. Tramways followed most major streets, and many remained by 1966, though after this they disappear very fast.

Whisper of the Heart and The Cat Returns feature some classic Keio trains (5000 and 6000 types), as the play is partially set in the Tama area. Pic related.
