    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.

    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!

    New Zealand Railway Station’s New Mesh Art Piece Causes Much Hilarity

    December 10, 2019


    It doesn’t look much like a cloud – but
    that’s exactly what this new £97,000 sculpture is supposed to be. The phallic mesh art piece has caused much
    hilarity since it was unveiled at a railway station in a suburb close to Auckland in New
    Zealand. One commuter, Phil Wellman, told the New Zealand
    Herald: “Oh my God, it’s a c*ck and balls.” The aluminium art work – called ‘Transit Cloud’
    – was created by sculptor Gregor Kregar, artist wife Sara Hughes and architect Davor Popadich
    and it was commissioned by Auckland Council. Kregar said he had found the reaction “a little
    upsetting” but told the New Zealand Herald: “Art is out there to stir reaction.” Last week a Canadian rail firm was left red-faced
    after customers pointed out that a map of one its stations was shaped like a penis. And in October American artist Paul McCarthy
    caused outrage in Paris when his giant blow-up Christmas tree was revealed – and left livid
    locals comparing it to a sex toy. The 69-year-old was even punched three times
    in the face by a Parisian after it was said to look like a ‘green monster butt plug’
