    200系新幹線ラストラン Bullet train Shinkansen 200 series Last running

    October 19, 2019

    Today is March 15, 2013. Change of timetable of a railroad will be performed on tomorrow. Many old model trains will be abolished in connection with it. Notable among them is the 200 series Shinkansen. 200 series is the train which wore the lovely face of the round nose. It is the same face as 0 series that used for Tokaido Shinkansen that was made in 1963. If 200 series is abolished, all the trains of a face with a round lovely nose will be lost. This is a very unfortunate event for the railway enthusiast. I came to the train base of the Tabata. But it stopped behind that train, it is hard to see. A little can be seen from here. It has stopped. Shinkansen shooting is difficult. Because it running a high place like that. This wire net, a high place, and a wall are obstructive. The last train will come at night. I think I’ll try to shoot in different locations. Tokyo station now. “Toki 347” bound for Niigata is the last train of the 200 series. “Toki 347″… Oh my god! Ticket was sold out! It is very crowded. I can not shoot. Platform crowded with journalists and many enthusiasts. It is great! It is original color. It is very crowded. I can not shoot. The popular reason in 200 series… Although a style is also one reason. Probably, another reason is the derailment accident which occurred in case of the earthquake in 2004. By the big earthquake which occurred in 2004, the 200 series Shinkansen caused the derailment accident during the run by 200km Speed. It was the first big disaster in the history of the Shinkansen. In spite of having been the worst ever accident, dead or injured person was nobody. The safety of the Shinkansen of Japan was proved under those circumstances in the world. I think that 200 series is loved also from such a reason. Since it is very crowded, there is no telling whether it can ride or not. I will try it. A lot of people! It is only said that I ride on. It arrived in Omiya station.

    Metro Tunnel – New Break Back Piling technology

    October 19, 2019

    The Metro Tunnel Project is using
    cutting-edge technology to reduce noise dust and vibration. Works are progressing
    to build a new underground station at Parkville and four other underground
    stations in Melbourne for the Metro Tunnel Project. And we’re always looking
    at ways we can minimize the impacts of construction on the surrounding
    community. Traditionally piling works use heavy
    machinery to cut and chisel off the piling caps during the final stage of
    piling. Known as breaking back the piles this is generally a noisy and dusty
    process that generates vibration. To minimize noise, dust and vibration
    impacts we’re using state-of-the-art technology and an innovative method to
    break back the piles. It involves placing polyethylene sleeves over the
    reinforcement cage down to the desired cutoff level. Next an array of purpose
    designed flasks with PVC tubes are fixed to the reinforcement cage to the cutoff
    level. Once the concrete is set, an expanding mortar agent is poured into
    the polyethylene sleeves the expanding mortar forms a horizontal crack at the
    cutoff level. This process will result in less noise, minimal dust and less
    vibration. The Metro Tunnel Project is using cutting-edge technology to reduce
    noise, dust and vibration. Authorised by Victorian Government, 1

    Melbourne Airport Rail Link overview

    October 19, 2019

    We’re building an Airport Rail Link for Victoria. Almost 70 million people will use Melbourne’s airport every year by 2038. That’s almost as busy
    as London’s Heathrow Airport. Melbourne’s Airport Rail Link will take
    pressure off the roads and connect people from all over
    Victoria to the airport. We’ve identified a preferred route traveling from the CBD to a new transport hub at Sunshine. It will then head towards Melbourne Airport
    using the existing rail reserve as well as sections of tunnel to protect homes and businesses. The connection at Sunshine provides the best link from the airport to all metro and regional lines benefitting every Victorian by enabling
    fast rail to Geelong and Ballarat and direct connections to the airport from Sunshine The Victorian Government will partner
    with the Commonwealth to fund the project and construction will begin by 2022.

    Switzerland Glacier Express Train St. Mortiz to Zermatt Review: Is it Worth the Money?

    October 18, 2019

    Hey everybody so today I am doing a review
    of the Swiss Glacier express train that goes from St. Moritz all the way to Zermatt. It’s
    an eight hour journey that crosses 291 bridges as well as 91 tunnels and we paid we were
    in first class. We paid about 250.00 dollars roughly Canadian a person so it’s a little
    pricey but it’s all relative in Switzerland. Ear buds are provide to you throughout the
    journey and basically there is this narrator that basically tells you all these stories
    along the whole journey with different interesting facts with how they built the trains as well
    as the landscape. And you’re probably watching this wondering well is it worth the money
    to go on the train. Well in short answer yes and no. My wife and I are both from Canada
    so seeing mountains and snow is pretty common. We weren’t blown away by anything we saw.
    And all the footage you see is everything I shot myself. The first thing I am going
    to say is that the weirdest thing is that it shouldn’t nbe called the Glacier Express.
    That title is super misleading. When in fact on this whole 8 hour journey you only see
    one glacier and that’s at the tale end in the small town Randa. You only see that one
    glacier for a minute or so and the rest of the train trip you’re basically just seeing
    mountains as well as snow as well as streams as well as small towns and villages The other thing is that the service is not
    very good on the actual train ride. They do serve different meals that you can buy but
    they’re quite expensive and you’ll be waiting for your food for quite a while. You’re probably
    better off bringing your own food and water. The other thing too is that eight hours is
    such a long journey that we thought we’d see so many different things along the way that
    after a while things got really repetitive like you’re seeing the same mountains over
    and over again and seeing snow everywhere. It didn’t have the same impact as it did maybe
    in the first hour of the journey when you’re in hour 8. So I felt like the train ride could
    have maybe been condensed to maybe 3 hours and I would still be happy with that, but
    8 hours just felt too long and even for first class it felt pretty cramped. Like we were
    sitting with another couple and it was pretty cramped in there up that we had to get up
    throughout the journey and stretch our legs. And it just wasn’t as comfortable as we thought
    it would be. The other thing that you’ll notice from watching this video is that the windows
    are absolutely terrible. They reflect everything so getting decent photos is really difficult
    as well as recording decent video cause you can see everyones reflection in all these
    windows. You think they would invest in anti-reflective glass for the amount of money they charge.
    The other thing is that if you’re well traveled and you’ve been all over Switzerland you’re
    really not going to see anything new here. You’re going to see what you’ve previously
    seen. The other thing too like I said before is that it’s extremely expensive. And I will
    recommend something to you as an alternative. We took a train ride from Milan, Italy to
    Zurich, Switzerland. That was only 3 hours and it was only a fraction of the price and
    it was so much more prettier and so much more scenic. I think honestly I would not go on
    this train ride again. I think it was overhyped and misleading and the service was not very
    good and maybe we could have done something more interesting, but you know we did it and

    China to build $242BB High-Speed Railway to Moscow

    China to build $242BB High-Speed Railway to Moscow

    October 18, 2019

    China is going to build a $242 billion (1.5
    trillion yuan) high-speed rail link between Beijing and Moscow. The line will cut the
    journey time from five to ‘two days’, say Chinese authorities. The railway will be 7,000 kilometers long
    and go through Kazakhstan, reports Bloomberg citing Beijing’s city government on the
    social networking site Weibo, China’s alternative to Twitter. The railway will make travel easier
    between Europe and Asia, the statement said. China is actively promoting its high-speed
    railway technology and sees Russia as an especially attractive market because of its strained
    relations with Western countries over Ukraine. In October 2014 Russia and China signed a
    memorandum of understanding over a high-speed railway connection. Russian Railways then
    reported that its purpose was to plan for a high-speed Moscow – Beijing Eurasian transport
    corridor. The project was more interesting because of
    the $400 billion deal signed in May for Russian gas giant Gazprom to build a pipeline and
    start gas supplies to China. READ MORE: Russia and China seal historic
    $400bn gas deal First Vice President of Russian Railways Alexander
    Misharin said in November that the plan would cost $60 billion to reach the Russian border
    and that the journey from Moscow to Beijing could be done within 30 hours. The fastest
    route currently takes at least 5 days. Misharin expected construction would take
    from 8 to 10 years. He compared the new railway network to the Suez Canal “in terms of scale
    and significance.”
