    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.

    Doha Metro to Hamad International Airport is Open!

    December 16, 2019


    Hi there!
    Welcome to another Ultimate Freggle video! The Doha Metro Red Line to Doha Hamad International Airport just opened. This video is to tell you all about it. Don’t forget to subscribe to the channel, give the video a Like of course, and let’s go explore, see how this works! So if you are taking the Metro to go to Doha Hamad International Airport, you just have to enter on to the Red Line,
    and make sure you take a train that has as destination Hamad International
    Airport and NOT Al Wakra. If you do that you just follow the tram to the end of the line, exit there, take the walkways, and about 10 minutes later you’ll find
    yourself in the departure terminal. Stay tuned to find out how to go From Hamad International Airport on to the Doha Metro. Tickets cost 2 QR for a single journey, which is about 0,50 USD, or 6 QR for a day pass, which is about 1,60 USD. On average there will be one train
    departing every six minutes and the average journey time between stations is
    about three minutes. But if you’re arriving in to Doha Hamad
    International Airport and you want to take the metro to go into the city, I’ll
    show you how that can be done. So if you are arriving into Doha’s Hamad International Airport, once you finished all your checks and picked up your
    luggage you’ll come out from the exit here, and then you’ll be looking to join
    the Metro of course. So what you’re going to do is exit here and just make a right turn and
    then follow what I’m doing here. You’ll just go one level up and then continue straight ahead. Go to level 1. And basically just follow the signs to
    the Metro. They are signposted now and it’s very easy to do. A little bit of a walk,
    but you’ll get there before you know it. And of course once you start seeing this
    sign, you know you’re doing good! As you reach the end of the walkway,
    you’ll see there’s lots of friendly people to help you as well. And there’s a
    lot of maps so you can choose your destination and you’ll know exactly
    where you’re going to go. So you’ll start off on the Red Line Then if you need to go somewhere else on the other lines, you can change at Msheireb or Al Bidda station. If you keep following the signs, you will come to the ticket machine. Get your ticket, and off you go! Tickets cost 2 QR for a single journey, which is about 0,50 USD, or 6 QR for a day pass, which is about 1,60 USD. On average, there will be one train departing every six minutes, and the average journey time between stations is about three minutes. And that’s it, once you reach the station
    itself you can board the Red Line and then you can go and explore Doha. Allright, I hope this video was helpful, make sure you click the LIKE button, Subscribe as well
    of course, and then we’ll see you soon in the next one. Thanks for watching!!

    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!

    Othello Train Tunnels – Hope BC

    December 15, 2019


    hello fellow travelers and welcome to
    Exit Thru the Gift Shop today we’re at Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park to
    check out the Othello Tunnels getting to the tunnels is easy it’s just
    a short walk from the nearby parking area in 1914 engineers blasted five tunnels
    through solid granite to complete the construction of the Kettle Valley
    railway line so just entering the tunnel here now and
    you can see that this is blasted just right out of solid rock four of these
    tunnels are true tunnels one of the tunnels is actually not a true tunnel
    because it has open air windows and light on the side we’ll check that one
    out in a minute they do recommend that you bring a flashlight along because it
    is quite dark in here there’s no natural light at this point and no artificial
    light either so make sure you bring a flashlight if you’re going to explore
    the tunnels so inside the tunnel I’m getting
    hit with drops of moisture makes me wonder about the overall stability of
    the tunnel and whether or not there’s a bit of a rockfall hazard as well just
    emerging from the first tunnel and up ahead you can actually see the next two
    tunnels the next one is blasted right out of the granite and the one further
    down you can see it’s been reinforced with an archway the tunnel lock provides
    spectacular views of the Coquihalla Canyon and the Coquihalla River running
    through it it’s actually a nice cool place to visit in the summertime because
    of the the running water up on the roof you can see the steel
    beams that have been added for reinforcement as well as the wire mesh
    that have been added for safety in case of rock falls the tunnels are connected
    by a series of wooden trestles these aren’t the original trestles but have
    been added as part of the conversion of this area to a Provincial Park the third tunnel has a series of open
    air windows which helps provide light and you can see how these were
    reinforced within the rock wall that had been blasted away also note that the
    tunnel had been reinforced in 1934 so these are some of the original
    structures the tunnels were named by engineer
    Andrew McCullough who was an avid Shakespeare fan and used names like
    Romeo and Juliet and Othello and Lear to name different places in the area it’s
    incredible how quickly the air temperature drops once you get inside
    the tunnel even though it’s quite a hot day outside today it is a little chilly
    inside the tunnel and a nice way to cool off the tunnels and trestles are maintained
    as part of the provincial park unlike the nearby Ladner Creek trestle which
    sits abandoned we recently give that a visit and I’ll post a link to that as
    well so you can check it out so there it is I would highly recommend that you
    check out the Othello tunnels the scenery is spectacular the tunnels are amazing
    and it’s one of the coolest attractions that you can find just outside of the
    Vancouver area the tunnels are closed in the winter time due to ice and falling
    rock hazards but are open during the summer from April to October alright
    that’s it for today please subscribe so you can stay up to date on all our
    latest adventures and check out the interactive map if you want to look at
    the other cool places that we’ve been to until next time it’s time to Exit Thru the Gift Shop

    Lock Tales – Big Chute Marine Railway – Trent-Severn Waterway

    December 15, 2019


    My name is Chas McKie, I’m the acting lock master at Big Chute Marine Railway. Well the Big Chute Marine Railway is a special lock because it is quite unique, almost one of a kind. This Marine Railway, the one I’m used to and I’ve seen operate in my time was constructed in 1977 and opened in 1978. The Marine Railway has 3 different types of slings set ups. The most common one used is what we call the Triple Sling, and that would carry boats up to an 8 foot beam. The second set of slings is what we call a double and will carry up to a 12 foot beam. And finally the big one, the single sling, which is the combination of 2 double slings. Is to carry anything above that 12 foot. So as with every lock station, lock times can vary. Either it’s from operational control, how long everything takes, or how long perhaps the boater takes to bring its vessel in. So on average for the Big Chute Marine Railway, we can do about 15 minutes. It takes about 7 minutes to run up or down the hill, and hopefully with skilled boaters we can get to that mark. This is the 150th anniversary of Canada, we’ve expected quite an increase in volume due to the free lockages. I can tell you this year already, the boats have definitely arrived. We have on average about 120 boats per day, given weekend especially we’ve actually seen it up to 180 boats on a weekend. We expect to see that continue this year. We do appreciate the visit, just so you know it’s always sunny at the Big Chute so hope to see you again real soon.

    Yangon Circular Railway (Myanmar) | Experience the real Yangon | Vlog | #012

    December 15, 2019


    What’s up guys it’s JoVi Travel! Good morning from Yangon! We just had breakfast and left the hotel and we’re now heading to the railway station.
    There is the Yangon Circular Railway here going around Yangon and the surrounding
    suburbs and villages and we’re gonna take this train today, because it’s
    supposed to be the best way to get to know the real Yangon and all the people
    around. So we’re excited about that! And there we are at the train station. The train that is taking a circle around the city is supposed to leave from platform seven, so there we are. The central station here is really old,
    well if you take into account that it’s the former capital of the country and
    still is the business center it’s really confusing in the trains are also very
    old, but we’re gonna get a ticket now and see how to train looks from inside. Good morning! Seems like I wasn’t quick enough. Can we get your tickets for the central railway line? So we just got our tickets. Pretty old
    school and the next train will leave at 10 past 10. Our train for the circular line just arrived and the English built this railway loop in the fifties to connect all the surrounding villages and suburbs with the former capital and
    grant those people access and the loop is around 45 kilometers long with 39
    different stops on the way and you can leave in every stop and we’re excited
    about what we’re going to see there and I’m sure we will get off the train in
    several points and see what we get there. We just got off the train at Danyingon Station and there’s supposed to be a big local market we’re gonna check
    that out now! If you like the Scott’s market from our last video you will probably
    love this market, because this is 100% local and there are no jewellery sellers, there’s much more fruits and vegetables and we haven’t seen any tourists so far so it’s pretty cool. Over here for example they are preparing fresh bamboo and this is the inner of the bamboo and then they cut it into small pieces and then it is ready for cooking. And in some parts it doesn’t smell that good, because for example here they are selling like kind of rotten fish. So the people here are really not used
    to see tourists and super crowded here and they’re super busy and everyone’s just carrying around their fruits and vegetable and I sell their stuff and it’s
    really hot and dusty here and the smells are so intense, because there’s so many
    different things like rice, fish and meat and yeah we finally found a place where you can have some food and drink and now we’re gonna stay here until the next train comes and we will continue the circle around. So we are back on the train and we are going to finish our circle until we are back at the central train station. It should take us around two hours more
    and see you there! And there we are back again at the
    train station. So this frame 8 was a pretty cool experience completely different than all the other sites you see here watching the vendors is selling
    their food there it was one guy who even brought in a whole food stand with little plastic chairs within like two seconds. And a little oven! I didn’t see that. Yeah it was a little oven and it was still
    hot. And all the farmers shoving in their huge bags of vegetables and fruits
    and everything. That was really fun and entertaining and now we’re gonna head
    back to the hotel and have a shower, because we’re really sweaty and dusty
    was so hot at the market and we will have some food afterwards. See you then! We just had a shower and we feel a lot better now and we are up to get some food! We just arrived at the place we chose for lunchinner today and it’s called
    mingle ah no it’s called on Au mingle Shan noodle shop. So lets get in there! Hello! So we just got our food and it smells so
    delicious. I got some fried Shan noodles we have fried dumplings never had that
    before and we also got some sticky noodle pork soup and everything smells so good and we are super hungry and we’re just gonna enjoy our food now! We just got some watermelon for dessert and it’s super convenient here, because everything is already cut the watermelon, the jackfruit, everything. And we just had our first Myanmar supermarket experience and we loved it you can try everything for
    free we had Nescafe we had some chocolate milk I don’t know we’ve tried
    so many things you’ve got some free goodies. So as usual if you liked this video give it a thumbs up make sure you subscribe so you won’t miss any of the

    FIRST #INDIAN #RAILWAY EXPERIENCE 3AC Train from Goa to #Hampi (Hospet)

    December 14, 2019


    Good morning! “Oops! too loud!” Good morning! 5:30 in the morning. We are ready to leave Goa. Well,
    Some more than others… We booked a taxi for 5:40am,
    so in 10 minutes. We are a bit sad
    that we are leaving Goa. It has been 3 months
    and it has been super nice, all the people we met,
    all the food we had. The weather,
    I can not say the same. Cause it was monsoon
    and it was pretty rainy. but still,
    very beautiful landscapes. And… what a lovely street
    we are in. So yes, we are staying
    at this Casa Marquito’s. Beautiful huh? Oh it’s fresh outside,
    so good. Last night
    we had our last Susegado IPA and White Owl
    at the legendary Joseph Bar. -Cheers!
    -Cheers! It was so nice. We visited also
    the Bonderam festival. But we didn’t stay long. Because It was far on the island
    and we needed to sleep early. But it was very fun,
    good music, nice atmosphere.
    Everybody dancing and drinking. It was good,
    families and… it was last..
    last good memory of Goa. And now we need to
    get to the taxi to go to… So we arrived at the station,
    Vasco da Gama. We are gonna check our train,
    platform whatever. And maybe go back
    outside again to get some Samosas! Oh yeah, Howrah Express, 7:10,
    platform No.1. With dumpling and coffee sir? Thinking… Okay, Sir.
    Thank you. Welcome to Goa, sir. -No, we are leaving Goa.
    -Are you departing? Yeah leaving. Yes! Here, sir. I think we came too early. And we have to wait around 50 minutes. But we have breakfast so… that’s a good thing. Samosas!!! Hyekyong… What numbers? Maybe
    these? Hello? And I will go there. We are in the train
    from Goa to Hampi. And this is way better
    than we expected. We reserved 3 AC and it was equipped with
    air conditioner. Maybe,
    Next time we go lower. Because we like to see
    how it is. This is how it looks.
    3AC class. Since it was a morning train,
    instead of sleeping, we read a book or enjoyed
    watching beautiful sceneries over the window. It was our first
    Indian railway experience and we really liked it. Where are you guys from? Actually he is from Portugal.
    He is my husband. After 7 hours train journey,
    we arrived at Hampi, one of the most
    historical places in India. On our next episode Monkeys Hungry Monkeys Thirsty Monkeys Temples Monkeys in Temples Elephants in Temples Scenic Views Powerful Gods Kingdom Ruins Selfies More Selfies Religious Passion Holy Cows And you Subscribe! Lifetime Travelmates
