Post by RA »

Have the recent postings of vast numbers of articles changed the nature of this forum? I for one tend to become less curious/interested when encountering numerous articles posted en mass. No doubt that many of them are of great value. However, It is the deluge that is daunting and may in turn inhibit the back and forth we are accustomed to.

Actually the links to articles often spur discussion.

I enjoy having most of the articles available, as long as the subject line describes the content of the article (which they do) - rather than "L@@K at this" or "interesting article!"

In addition to spurring discussion, good ideas and leads on useful products or materials for restoration have come from these posts. Skip the ones that don't hold your interest...but I value their being shared.

I believe that's true. There are gems among the dross. I thank David and others for filling an important function with these offerings . . .

(For a relaxing pastime on the screen, try some of the many cab-view tram and train rides available on YouTube. Austria is particularly beautiful in the fall, and don't miss the hinky ancient trams of Buenos Aires !)

Something made me go looking for tram videos. I found a whole world of train rides. My dad was a rail fan; now I wish he was here so I could ask him about what I'm seeing. In the meantime I'm getting a look at landscapes of a wide variety.

Most European lines are electrified -- hundreds of miles of catenary overhead. I started in Berlin. I've seen the route east from San Diego through the Mexican badlands, and Canada, and Norway, Spain, Slovenia, Bulgaria; logging in the woods of Russia; Belgium, Switzerland, and Scotland.

I love the way urban rail morphs into intercity transit, how many urban lines move from the roadway to an avenue parallel, with grass and trees, veering off into the woods, and eventually crossing farmland and skirting or penetrating villages, fully integrated into the landscape.

Here is a Tweet I read today:

"@jonlovett: It's amazing how many links you don't have to click on if you don't want to. Staggering really."

There is steak and there is spam. Sorry for the interruption. I guess it makes no nevermind.
