    Hi, friends!
    Welcome to TFC Media Planet Leaf… Many people feel that they cannot have the comfort that found during the train journey in any vehicle. We all know that we can travel comfortably by sleeping on berths if we have the reservation. So many of us feel that the train journey is correct if we want to travel comfortably. But few journeys in the world would make you feel the fear than comfort. Travelling through those ways, it would be like seeing the borders of the hell. In this video, I am going to show you 10 most dangerous railways which turned the train journey into a nightmare. Before knowing those things… For more animated videos along with 3D Panchatantra stories which could give happiness, knowledge and intelligence to the children… Subscribe to our Slate Kids channel. Along with that channel, we posted our other channels links in the description below this video. Australia has become one of the famous tourist countries in the world. Even in this country which has been well developed in all the sectors, there is a horrifying railway which scares the public. Its name is Kuranda Scenic Railway Line. This runs between Cairns and Queensland in Australia. The trail running on this railway line passes through the Barron Gorge National Park. As part of this journey, several times the train passes very closely to small and big waterfalls. Stoney Creek waterfall is one of the important among them. While this journey which happens at the edges of the mountains and the terrifying bridges make few people feel the thrill… It creates the fear in many. During the journey, while the trains reach the destination… We see several sceneries while going through small villages and towns. The people will not face any trouble by arranging the railway gates at such regions. But you will get goosebumps by looking at a railway in Thailand. In that country, the railway line that runs between Wongwian Yai and Bangkok is called as Maeklong Railway. On the of this railway line, the train runs through the market there for some distance. This market is also called as umbrella pulldown market. When the train runs through this market… There the vendors take away all their things inside… And pull back their tents. They will come on to the track as soon as the train passes away. To see that strange market… Daily several tourists visit that place. The people who see that situation say that they get scared… Thinking of what if someone falls under the train by mistake while it is passing through. In Myanmar which is one of our Asian countries, there is a railway line called Gokteik Viaduct. There the people say that we should have more courage to travel through that way… We can understand how dangerous the way is. This railway became famous as the world’s longest railway trestle line. In that country, joining two towns in the hill station called Pyin Oo Lwin… This bridge was built in 1900. This entire bridge was built with the support of 15 towers and stretches 689 mts. This railway at the height of 820 feet from the earth passes through the hills and forests. While this place gives a good experience to few people… But many will get a 102-degree fever to travel on that bridge once again in their life. Tren de Las Nubes is the famous railway line in Argentina. Many brave tourists would get excited to travel through this way. Because this is the fifth highest railway in the world. When it reaches few bridges… There the height will be 13850 feet above mean sea level. Between this railway line, there are 29 bridges, 21 tunnels, 13 viaducts, 2 spirals and 2 zig zags. While travelling on this journey, you might have never faced such speed of your heartbeat. Do you know where the world’s longest railway line is located? You have to visit Russia to know. This railway line built from Moscow in Russia to Russian Far East is called as Trans-Siberian Railway. The length of this railway is 9289 km exactly. The train runs in this way passes through Mongolia, China and North Korea. This railway was built between 1891 – 1916. As it is so longest railway, the train has to pass through the dangerous areas at the mountain edges. At the time when the train reaches those places, the passengers in that train pray to the god to save them from the danger… With that, you can understand how horrible the situation will be there. Georgetown Loop Railroad in Colorado region of America is famous as the beautiful and scariest railway. It was built in the Rocky Mountains in Clear Creek County. On this railway, the trains were made run between 1899-1938. Well, as many places on this way scared the passengers… This railway was closed in 1939 as it is the most dangerous. Well, the trains were operated by this way from 100-year anniversary of its construction in 1984. A railway line called Ferrocarril Central Andino in Peru country, South America… It is the second highest railway line in the world. This entire railway line is between the Andes mountains. The train runs on this railway line of length 332 km, through 61 bridges, and 65 tunnels. This train runs through the slopes of the mountain and looks scary. At some places, the railway tracks are divided into two. While the train reaches those places, mostly our heart beat will stop. Even if a small mistake takes place while travelling through this way… In the accident which takes place there, 95 percent of the passengers have to walk towards hell. Devil’s Nose Train is another scariest railway line located in Ecuador in South America. Listening to this name itself we can say how dangerous the railway line is… This railway line is at the height of 9,000 feet above sea level in the Andes Mountains in Ecuador. On one hand, this railway line is at the edges of the mountains… At many places with the zigzag turnings, we get scared while the train takes a turn. To the people who see the scariest turnings on the mountain slopes, it would chase them lifelong like a nightmare. One of the world’s scariest railway lines is located even in our country. While crossing this railway bridge built on the sea between Rameswaram in Tamil Nadu and Pamban island… The passengers stop breathing and hold their heart… With that, we can understand how horrible that railway bridge will be. This bridge is called as Pamban bridge. The construction of this bridge was started in the month of August in 1911… And completed by February 1914. The length of this bridge will be about 2 km. On 23 December 1964, due to a super cyclonic storm… 150 passengers lost their lives in the sea. The Death Railway Line… Listening to this name, we can know how horrible that railway line will be. This railway line is between Ban Pong, Thailand and Burma. While constructing this railway line, nearly 1 lakh railway workers have fallen into River Kwai and died. As most of this railway line was constructed across the rivers and at the edges of the hills… The journey through this railway line will be scariest. If you see the pics of this railway line, then you will understand how dangerous it is. The one who knows about this railway line will never go in that way. If they go, then they will get scared even to board the train in their life again. That is why this railway line has got the name ‘The Death Railway Line’.

    Man Clings For His Life On High Speed Train – CAUGHT ON CAMERA

    November 24, 2019


    An absolutely insane video is circulating
    on youtube, that shows a daredevil holding on to the back of a speeding train by its
    windshield wiper. Who is this daredevil, and what the heck was
    he thinking? I’m going to tell you everything you need
    to know, here for you on IO. Welcome to inform overload, where we discuss
    viral content. I’m charlotte dobre. A 23 year old man from perth Australia sent
    to get a psychiactric evaluation after he climbed onto the rear end of a train and held
    on by the windshield wiper. I guess that’s one way to avoid paying for
    the train. The train was going 68 miles per hour, or
    110 km per hour…which is high key really fast . So basically, if he fell, he would
    have been seriously injured, if not killed. Underneith the train, theres rail and concrete
    sleepers. Mix that with the speed of the train, and
    yeah, falling off would not have been pleasant. At around 4:30 pm on Saturday September 23rd,
    Motorists on the road beside the traintrack took the video, which is now going viral on
    the internet. He was spotted close to Glandalough station,
    and it was supposed to stop, but it didn’t. As the train approached glendalough station,
    the man moved back inside the carriage, and would likely have escaped arrest if the trains
    topped. He was arrested when he arrived at the next
    stop, stirling station, by PTA officers. This isn’t the first time someone has attempted
    a stunt like this. Its called train surfing, and usually people
    don’t get caught. The stunt is usually uploaded to facebook
    or youtube after the event, and the PTA doesn’t find out about it until way after the fact. These train surfers want to get on youtube,
    they want mainstream publicity. this was the first time officials were notified
    during an act like this, and were able to act accordingly. After being detained, he was taken to a hospital
    for a mental health assessment, he will likely face trespassing charges. At this time, the PTA doesn’t have a policy
    for dealing with train surfers, but its now considering creating one. Honestly dude, next time, just pay your train
    fare. Alright friends its time to respond to a few
    comments. Wonder women – I feel like charlotte always
    wears the cutest outfits. Aw thanks. Summer Marie Hobson – Who’s to say im
    a potato? I could be a carrot….or a lee. Or a rainbow unicorn..a mermaid. Summer marie hobson, you can be whatever you
    want to be, as long as it makes you happy. I personally am happy being a potato, and
    I should be accepted for who I am. Ok guys, that is all for this video, theres
    a link to our patreon over here, as well as a link to another amazing story about the
    mystery of the easter island statues finally being solved! Definitely click it and I’ll see you in
    that video.

    Top 10 Dangerous Railway Tracks In The World

    August 29, 2019


    10 Dangerous Rail Routes You Gotta Travel How many times have you found yourself day
    dreaming about a long vacation? Yea, it happens frequently and there aint
    any harm done! Those gorgeous beaches, sky high mountains,
    cosy resorts and tons of yummy food, who doesn’t want that? Your little dreaming adventure took you to
    places, having fun but there aint a thing about your journey, now that’s totally unfair! You obviously were planning to fly to your
    destination but rail roads have a charm like none other. The scenic views are impossible to beat in
    general but if you have a thing for thrills, we have you covered with these insane routes
    that will get the adrenaline pumping in you! Number 10. Georgetown Loop Railroad, Colorado
    A rail road some 195m high in the mountains has all it takes to attract people from around
    the world. Hundreds of people every year book tickets
    on the train to travel the 4.5 miles from Sliver Plume to Georgetown. This 3ft narrow gauge is located in the Rocky
    Mountains and can set your heart rate flying so think twice before you attempt this journey! But the gorgeous views from that height will
    do their best to distract you from the fear, uhmmm it might just increase that feeling
    also, not sure! Number 9. Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad, New Mexico
    The 64 miles between Chama, New Mexico and Antonito, Colorado host a 3ft narrow gauge
    heritage railroad that you just have to travel! It was built in 1880 as a part of Rio Grande
    Railroad San Juan Extension and since 1971 carries tourists through the scenic mountains! The name of the route is derived from spots
    it passes, Toltec Gorge which stands at 800ft and the 10,015ft high Cumbres Pass which is
    the highest pass in US! If loops, trestles, tunnels and narrow ledges
    don’t scare you, this is where you have to be right now! Number 8. The Death Railway, Thailand
    The 250-mile railway stretch from Ban Pong, Thailand to Thanbuyuzayat, Burma is a famous
    one, any idea why? Doesn’t the name ‘The Death Railway’
    ring a bell in your ears? This track was built after the World War 2
    with the help of prisoners of war and Asian slave laborers. The whole railway line sings the saga of the
    horrendous past of Thailand because during the 16 months that it was being constructed,
    nearly one hundred thousand laborers died! It might offer you incredible views but you
    will never look at it the same way now! Number 7. White Pass & Yukon Route, Alaska
    This 110-mile-long track connecting Alaska and Skagway was first opened in 1900 but had
    to be shut down in 1982 due to the collapse of the mining industry. It was reopened in 1988 as a heritage railway
    for tourists who want to delve into the scenic beauty of mountains and glaciers, keeping
    the thrill factor intact! You ask where does thrill and adventure make
    their way here? Well, it escalates to a height of 3000m so
    hold your breath while you are there, looking outside the window might be scary! Number 6. Tren a las Nubes, Argentina
    You know the route is special when it is called the ‘Train to clouds’, uhmm you don’t
    come across many trains taking you there, isn’t it an airplane’s job? That might just not be true because hello,
    this track is 4220m above sea level making it the 5th highest railway in the world. Going from the Argentine Northwest to the
    Chilean border, Tren a las Nubes was built originally for economic reasons in 1948 but
    now acts as a heritage railway for tourists. You’ll be mesmerized by numerous zigzag
    lines, 21 tunnels and 13 bridges that you will pass during your journey! Number 5. Kuranda Scenic Railroad, Australia
    This railway runs from Cairns, Queensland to the town of Kuranda, across the Barron
    Gorge National Park and is more of a tourist attraction than a regular commute up the mountains! The line was built between 1882 and 1891 and
    stretches for about 23 miles taking almost 2 hours to reach the top including the stops
    at the falls. Your journey will be eventful keeping in mind
    the 15 tunnels, 40 bridges, 93 curves and waterfalls that you’ll pass by, even getting
    a bit of sprinkling from them, sounds romantic? Number 4. Chennai-Rameswaram Route, India
    One of the most scenic rail routes of India is also a scary one, double fun! It includes a 1.2-mile-long bridge that connects
    Rameswaram on Pambam island to mainland India. The most interesting part is that it is the
    first cantilever bridge in India and was built over the course of 14 years, completed only
    in 1914! Standing at 12.5m above sea level, the bridge
    can be raised at the center to allow ships to pass. Though it stands strong on 143 piers, strong
    ocean currents and cyclones can cause serious damage to the bridge and train, yikes! Number 3. Narizdel Diablo or Devil’s Nose Train, Ecuador
    The 45-minute ride from the town of Alausi to Silambe is a dreamy one with mountains
    around, cool! Situated at 2700m above sea level, the Devil’s
    Nose section is considered among the most difficult railways to engineer and we can’t
    doubt that! Though the views are mesmerizing, they will
    vanish from your sight once you reach the vertical drop of 500m, the ride might restore
    your faith in God! You won’t want to climb onto the roof of
    the train for fear of your life, not that you are allowed to as it is! But you can still enjoy the thrill that will
    come with this ride unsaid! Number 2. Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway, United Kingdom
    Back in the 19th century, it was difficult for the two towns of Lynton and Lynmouth to
    rise economically due to the high cliffs between them. Therefore, in 1890, a railway line joining
    these two towns became operational, a good move we should say! While on the journey, you get mesmerizing
    views of Exmoor and the North Devon Coastline but don’t get too carried away, the thrill
    is waiting! There is a steep 500ft cliff with a 58% gradient
    that will leave you astounded! So get yourself on any of the two cars each
    carrying 40 people to delve into the natural beauty! Number 1. Aso Minami route, Japan
    Imagine yourself on a train that passes close by an active volcano! That is surely not many people’s dream vacation
    but we can’t deny that the experience would be pure thrilling! Not that the volcano is always erupting but
    being in a close vicinity of one that may just erupt…ooh we got goosebumps! The railroad connecting Takamori to Tateno
    Station in Minamiaso is without a doubt Japan’s most dangerous rail routes and you aren’t
    wandering off there with a weak heart by any means! Which of these railway lines seem the most
    inviting and thrilling to you? Tell us in the comment section below. Subscribe to our channel if you liked this

    DEADLIEST SPIDER BITE!

    August 13, 2019


    – [Coyote] You ready? – [Cameraman] Oh,
    spider, huge spider! Right there right there,
    Oh, whoa. right there, right there.
    Is that a tarantula? – [Coyote] No no no no no. I think that’s a
    funnel web spider. – Okay, a bite from this
    is potentially lethal. I’m just gonna set that down
    and see if I can coax it. It’s in, it’s in
    there, it’s in there. (highly energetic music) Australia’s arguably the most dangerous continent
    in the world. I’m sure that as your
    imagination begins to run wild, you are likely
    thinking about being snatched from a river’s
    edge and eaten alive by a giant Saltwater Crocodile. Or perhaps you are envisioning
    how terrifying it would be if you were to stumble
    upon and be bitten by one of it’s incredibly
    venomous snakes, like the Eastern Brown. However, it’s not
    only the reptiles that you need to be weary off. Tonight we are exploring
    just outside of Sydney, the most densely populated
    city in Australia, which also happens to be home to the world’s deadliest spider,
    the Sydney Funnel Web. Armed with a set
    of massive fangs, and an incredibly toxic
    venom, just a single bite from this spider has the
    ability to kill a human. Sounds terrifying, yet these
    spiders are rather illusive and tend to avoid
    humans at all cost. In fact, they can be
    rather difficult to find, as building their silk
    lined, funnel shaped burrows under rocks or in rotting logs keeps them hidden
    and out of sight. Ooh, covered in ants,
    watch out for that. Let’s go on the back
    side of this tree. There’s some logs
    to flip over here. So, unless you’re like me
    and are flipping over debris in the environment, your
    odds of encountering one are pretty unlikely. You ready? Lift this up. Oh, spider, huge spider. Right there, right there,
    Oh, Whoa. right there, right there.
    Is that a tarantula? No, no, no, no, no, I think
    that’s a Funnel Web Spider. Right there, just came out
    from underneath that log. Look at it’s
    abdomen, right there. Holy cow, that’s definitely
    a Funnel Web Spider. Hold on, I need to get
    it in this container. Oh my gosh, did you see? It’s a good thing I picked up
    the log from the other side. It was just burrowed
    right underneath there. – [Cameraman] That’s a
    tiny container, dude. That looks too big
    to be a Funnel Web. – [Coyote] No, no,
    no, it definitely is. Look at the front of it’s body. – [Cameraman] Oh yeah. – [Coyote] Wow, that
    spider’s so big, I don’t think it’s going
    to fit in this container. Mario, you have that bigger jar? – [Mario] Yeah, I think might
    have one in my backpack. Hang on. – [Coyote] Let me see
    if I can peel back some of these grasses.
    It looks like a tarantula but, Ooh, it’s moving, hurry up. – [Mario] I understand, here. – [Coyote] Okay, bite from
    this is potentially lethal. I’m just going to set that
    down and see if I can coax it. I’m going to try to coax it
    right into the container. Now they cannot jump but
    they will lunge forward. Oh, it’s in, it’s
    in there, it’s in. There we go. Wow, look at that.
    Oh yeah. That is 100 percent
    a Funnel Web Spider. – [Cameraman] That is a big one. – Wow, we can not
    miss getting this up close for the cameras. Okay, let me grab my bag and
    let’s head up to those rocks. Wow, that is without
    question a Funnel Web Spider. The question that remains
    is what species is it? I want to find a
    good, flat open rock. – [Cameraman] How about
    that one right there? – This? Yeah.
    Yeah, that looks pretty. – [Cameraman] Or that
    one. Is that better? – Yeah, that’s a
    little bit better. Let’s see if it will just
    sit on top of the rocks if it’s just like this. – [Cameraman] Yeah, I
    like this, this is good. – Wow. – [Cameraman] Let’s have a look. – That is intimidating. It does, it looks
    like a tarantula. I know you said,
    “Is it a tarantula? “You sure it’s a
    Funnel Web Spider?” 100 percent certain it’s
    a Funnel Web Spider. One of the ways that you can
    identify this species as such is they have a very
    bald cephalothorax. Now, they do have hairs on
    their legs, and on the abdomen, but that is how you can
    recognize a Funnel Web Spider, and that’s the perfect
    sort of place to find them. Underneath logs
    where they can wait and ambush for their prey. Now, they will also,
    obviously, be inside of burrows with those little funnel web
    systems, and whoa, am I glad that I picked up the log
    from the end that I did. Now, my fingers didn’t
    tuck underneath the log. I was on the top side
    and that’s why you always pick up a log from an
    area that you can see, because if you tuck
    your fingers underneath, you grapple onto that
    spider, and you take a bite, you are on your way to the
    hospital, without question. Okay, now, I know it’s probably
    kind of tough to see it inside of this container, so
    let me see if I can take it out and place it on the rock here, and let’s get some
    shots with you. Are you ready for that? – [Cameraman] Okay,
    let me help the guys break out the light real quick. – Okay,
    It’s getting dark. We’re losing light here. (dramatic music) Alright guys, we have
    the lights set up now, and in the lights, the
    spider is even more intimidating looking. You can see the sheen on the
    legs and the cephalothorax. Ah, it’s already cast
    a little bit of webbing inside the container
    there, and uh, I think if you guys are ready, let’s take it out
    of the container and see if it will just hold
    it’s ground here on the rock. Now, this is an extremely
    aggressive spider species, and often times, they won’t run, but what they will do is rear up and show you those fangs,
    and those front legs. Okay.
    We have to be very cautious. Yeah, I’m just going to
    gently tilt this down like this, and let’s
    see if it will crawl out and just stop right
    there, here we go. Okay, see if I can
    get it to stay still. Ooh, you stay, you
    stay, you stay. Actually, maybe I’ll do this. It seems to be more comfortable
    inside the container. – [Cameraman] Yeah,
    that works for me. How about you, Mario?
    Okay. This is such a dangerous spider. I mean, even more so
    than a wandering spider. – [Cameramen] Ohh.
    Okay. Look at those hooked legs,
    allowing it to hold on to the edge of the container. Let me see if I do
    this, maybe if I put the container over
    top of it, and give it just a second to
    stay right there. Now, one reason that
    the bite it so bad is that because when they
    bite, their fangs are so long, they actually will
    hook into you, hold on, and continue
    to pump venom. And it’s not like a Black
    Widow or a Red Back Spider where they might give
    you a warning bite. A bite from this spider
    species is full on, as much venom as I can inject. Okay, let’s try this. Everybody got a decent
    shot on the spider? There you have it, wow,
    and just for scale. Look at how big that
    spider is next to my hand. Not taking my eyes
    off of the arachnid. That is definitely as close
    as I feel like I can get. Alright Mark, let’s try this, I’m going to try to present it from just it’s still
    position, right there, and like all spider species,
    you see those very defined eight legs, but they also have
    very long pedipalps upfront and that helps them to
    grapple on to their prey, and when they rear up,
    they show those fangs, and their fangs are
    incredibly long. Longer, in some
    cases, than even some of the snake species
    here in Australia. Now, one of the reasons that
    this spider is considered so dangerous, is because
    they can often times be found in residential areas. The Sydney Funnel Web
    specifically is often times found right in
    people’s backyards. That’s why they tell
    you if you’re out there working in the garden, make
    sure you have on gloves. You can be tilling up
    dirt, accidentally grab one of these things, it bites
    you on the tip of the finger, and you may be seeing symptoms
    in as few as 15 minutes. Now, the immediate bite, you’re
    definitely going to notice. The fangs are long
    enough to draw blood, but immediately you’ll feel
    throbbing in your finger, and shortly after,
    you’ll start to feel a tingling in your
    mouth and lips. Now, if you’re bitten
    by one of these spiders, you want to apply compression
    to the entire arm. So, let’s say you’re bitten
    on the top of your finger, put compression straps up
    the length of your arm. That will help slow the movement of the venom into your body. Wow, that is impressive. Now, there are around
    40 recognized species of Funnel Web Spider, with
    one of the most dangerous being the Sydney Funnel
    Web, and I can’t identify exactly if this is
    a Sydney or not, but what we do want to do
    is actually take this spider back with us into civilization. Where we want to go is the
    Australian Reptile Park. They are, oh, it’s moving. The Australian Reptile
    Park is the one place in Australia where they
    actually extract venom from these spiders
    and then in turn build an antivenom for
    people that are bitten. So, this spider that
    we found right here, might actually be used
    to save some lives. How cool is that?
    Awesome. I think the best thing to
    do now is put a cap on this, place it in my pack,
    and call it a night. I’m Coyote Peterson,
    be brave, stay wild. We’ll see you on
    the next adventure. Alright, we are
    taking this spider to the Australian Reptile Park. Wow, what a find! Australia’s home to a collection
    of dangerous arachnids, from the Red Back,
    to the Huntsmen, and ultimately the Funnel Web. This beautiful continent is
    crawling with venomous spiders. Catching a Funnel Web
    Spider is something I had always hoped to do, and
    now with one in my possession, it was time that the crew and I headed to the
    Australian Reptile Park. Famous for being the only
    sanctuary of it’s type in Australia, they’re
    renowned for their spider and snake venom milking program. Will our spider’s venom be
    used to save human lives? Stay tuned for the
    fascinating conclusion as I get dangerously close
    to this creepy arachnid. And don’t forget, subscribe so
    you can join me and the crew on this season of
    Breaking Trail. Things are about
    to get dangerous. (animal noises)
