    New Hampshire Railway Makes Tracks With Biodiesel

    December 16, 2019


    JOHN DAVIS: Our success story this week takes
    us to the historic Mount Washington Cog Railway in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. Built in
    1869, the Old Peppersass ride takes only about an hour to reach the 6,288-foot peak. Originally
    wood-fired, by 1910 coal was the fuel of choice. Today, over 100 years later, the cog railway
    uses cleaner, cheaper biodiesel to power five locomotives. Processed from local restaurant waste grease,
    the B20 fuel is supplied by White Mountain Biodiesel, a Granite State Clean Cities coalition
    stakeholder. The change is a hit with tourists. WAYNE PRESBY: We have a lot of members of
    the public that are very environmentally conscious, and they just love the fact that we’ve switched
    over. I mean, our ridership has surged since we put the diesels online, just surged. JOHN DAVIS: Some 90,000 people ride the railway
    each year, and while nostalgia buffs will find one coal-fired steam locomotive still
    being used, it’s biodiesel that is the driving force behind this unforgettable alt-fuel adventure.

    The Most Dangerous Railways In The World

    December 16, 2019


    Lots of people are afraid of flying. But have you ever met someone who’s afraid
    of trains? Sure, trains used to derail all the time way
    back in the day, but they’re perfectly safe now. Or… are they? “Traaaain!” “oh, s—.” Keep watching at your own risk, because you
    may develop a deathly fear of trains yourself once you get a look at the most dangerous
    railways in the world. The one that goes backwards The Devil’s Nose is a train route that operates
    in Ecuador. The route — which, according to Ecuador
    Train Journeys, killed around 2,000 workers during construction — is famous not just
    for it’s amazing scenic views, but for a steep descent where the train actually goes backwards
    through a series of switchbacks. And until recently, they actually allowed
    passengers to experience this while riding on top of the train. That’s crazy! The one with cyclones Built in 1914, The Pamban Bridge spans a staggering
    1.25 miles of ocean on the route between Channai India, and Pamban Island. It’s also right in a major cyclone alley,
    and is frequently battered by wind, rain, and even tidal surges. In 1964, a storm struck a passenger train
    crossing the bridge. The bridge was wrecked and the train overturned
    with an estimated 115 people on board. There were no survivors, but the wreckage
    of the old bridge can still be seen by train passengers. The one on a volcano Japan’s Minamiaso Railway Takamori line boasts
    a unique claim to fame, as it crosses the southern part of the caldera of Mount Aso,
    Japan’s largest active volcano. Yes, that’s right, the train goes through
    an active volcano. If that sounds like a bad idea, well, it is,
    as proven in 2016 when a series of devastating earthquakes caused a landslide that destroyed
    the tracks. Repairs aren’t expected to be fully completed
    until 2021 at the earliest, which… is probably just as well. The one with no air At its highest point, The Qinghai-Tibet Railway
    reaches a staggering 16,640 feet above sea level: the highest point on the planet through
    which a train travels. It’s so high that the train has to supply
    oxygen to passengers. At lower elevations, it’s just pumped into
    the cabin, but higher up, passengers have to wear oxygen tubes. Don’t worry, though, because each train has
    a resident doctor on board… just in case. The one that goes vertical The Pilatus Railway in Switzerland is the
    steepest cogwheel railway in the world. Just how steep is it? According to Pilatus’ official website, the
    train runs up a staggering gradient of 48 percent on tracks that were first built in
    1889. Luckily, the railway’s design prevents the
    cogwheels from climbing out of the rack, despite the rails themselves being over 100 years
    old, and keeps the carriages from being thrown over by the region’s tremendously high-speed
    winds. The one that’s underwater You might not expect to find a genuinely dangerous
    railway somewhere as innocuous as Devon, England. But the train line runs right up against the
    English Channel, leaving trains often battered by massive waves as they pass through. In fact, back in February 2014, the sea wall
    itself was swept away, leaving rails dangling in mid-air. The line was closed for months as a result. Yikes! The one that crosses a runway New Zealand’s Napier-Gisborne Railway isn’t
    particularly out of the ordinary for most of its length. But things get weird at the Gisborne Airport,
    where the train crosses an active runway. When a train goes through, takeoffs and landings
    are put on hold, and vice versa, making it quite likely that these are the only trains
    in the world which have part of their route managed by air traffic controllers. The really, really high one Called the “Train to the Clouds,” this Argentinian
    rail line earns the nickname. One of the highest railways in the world,
    according to Argentina’s tourist board, it crosses no fewer than 29 bridges and 13 viaducts. Perhaps the scariest is La Polvorilla Viaduct,
    which sits at 207 feet above the ground and curves around 735 feet in length. You should probably just close your eyes and
    hope they’re on the ball when it comes to track maintenance. Thanks for watching! Click the Grunge icon to subscribe to our

    Eglinton Crosstown Construction Ep. 2 | Mount Dennis [CC]

    December 16, 2019


    Hey guys, welcome back to the channel! As
    many of you are probably intimately aware, the construction of one of Toronto’s upcoming
    rapid transit lines, the Eglinton Crosstown, is well underway with a projected open date
    in 2021. Today, we will be taking you guys on site to Mount Dennis station, the western
    terminus of the light rail line, and a future TTC and GO intermodal transit hub. Let’s
    get started! Located east of the intersection of Eglinton
    Avenue and Weston road, Mount Dennis will become one of the many “mobility hubs”
    within the city, and it will become not just the terminus for the new Eglinton Crosstown,
    but also an intermediate station on the GO Kitchener line and the Union Pearson Express,
    not to mention the numerous TTC bus routes that will also serve this station at its attached
    bus terminal. Even before reaching the station, you can
    already see the guideway into the station being constructed all along Eglinton. The
    guideway will go on this bridge across the Weston Road intersection, then under the GO
    train tracks and into the station itself. We’re really loving all the progress we
    are seeing here, and we can’t wait to see actual LRVs being tested here at the site. The LRT station itself is under the rail bridge
    and the new Photography Drive bridge, and it is already taking shape and becoming quite a
    pretty sight. You can see the glass structures taking shape, and they are well on their way
    to being completed. The station will also have an off-road bus
    terminal as mentioned before, and you can sort of see it in the distance over on the
    other side of the guideway, even though we were not able to get any closer for
    a shot. Another thing worth mentioning is the fact
    that the station is actually built on top of the property known as Kodak Heights, a
    site where Kodak manufactured their cameras. Instead of demolishing the building itself,
    they are transforming the landmark and Heritage Interest building into a focal point for the
    hub, where a lot of features like waiting areas and commercial spaces will be located. Besides the station itself, the Mount Dennis
    area also contains the Eglinton Maintenance and Storage Facility, where the trains of
    the LRT will be stored, maintained, and serviced. The facility has already received a few of
    the new Flexity Freedom trains, but unfortunately, we were not able to get more footage inside.
    Still, it is great to see the facility up and running, and ready to service the route
    in just a few short years. Alright guys, we hope you enjoyed this construction
    update at Mount Dennis station. We will be going to other parts of the route like we
    did here and with Kennedy, and we will also be back here to check out the Eglinton Maintenance
    and Storage Facility in a couple of weeks for Doors Open, so you guys can get a behind
    the scenes look at the operations here. Like, subscribe, and leave a comment down below
    if you want us to visit any part of the route in particular, or if there are any other projects
    you would like us to check out. Thanks for watching, and we’ll see you in the next one!
