Toy train unboxing of the M?rklin DCC Freight Train & Supermarket Starter Set Thomas & Friends Salty was clearly impressed. This train set was a $179 Aldi Australia Christmas special. This is my first experience with M?rklin trains and it’s pretty obvious this is a top shelf quality toy. The M?rklin HO train system is different to the standard used by many other model train companies. There is a third rail concealed in the roadbed with only small studs protruding through the ties of the track ‘C-Track in this set’. The two outer rails are connected electrically. This provides the simplified wiring enjoyed by larger gauges (such as for reverse loops) without seriously detracting from the realism of the track because only two of the rails are visible. Because the two outer rails are not electrically isolated from each other, however, some do not consider M?rklin’s system to be a [More]

            He may be scruffy-lookin’, but he ain’t no nerf-herder. Harrison Ford appeared on The Tonight Show in what is possibly the most low-fi interview ever. No matter how peppy Fallon gets, Ford stays stalwartly chilled out. So chilled out that Fallon busts out some of Ford’s favourite scotch Bruichladdich (10 points to Gryffindor if you can pronounce it). The two then proceed to tell jokes, and Ford’s glacial delivery is absolutely brilliant, and not just because he tells a joke about ice… gives a whole new meaning to deadpan. Conclusion: don’t we all wish we could chill with Harrison Ford.

Ryan Gosling plays an LAPD officer heading for an encounter with Harrison Fords character Deckard in a film whose sheer scale leaves you gasping.   This is a visually staggering film,? it must be experienced on the biggest screen possible. Blade Runner 2049 is a spectacle of eerie and merciless vastness, it is at times satirical, tragic and even romantic. This is the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic, directed by Ridley Scott and based on Philip K Dicks novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?, starring Harrison Ford as a blade runner, a futureworld cop whose job is to track down and kill disobedient almost-human androids known as replicants. The 2017 follow-up simply couldn’t be any more of a triumph: a stunning enlargement and improvement. It alludes to films the first Blade Runner helped inspire, such as Camerons The Terminator, Spielbergs AI Artificial Intelligence, Nolans The Dark Knight, Andrew [More]
Gujarat to Mumbai 217mph train will cut journey time from eight hours to three and is funded with a low-interest Japanese loan. This excerpt from an article in the Guardian (see link below) gives an interesting update on the developing relationship between India and Japan:   India’s creaking, colonial-era railway system is preparing to take a giant leap forward as the Indian prime minister breaks ground on the country’s first bullet train project. Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the high-speed line on Thursday during a visit by his Japanese counterpart, Shinz Abe, to the western state of Gujarat. This is the new India and the flight of its dreams is endless, Modi said at the ceremony. The bullet train project will bring speed and employment. It is human-friendly and eco-friendly. The high-speed line, which the government aims to launch by the 75th anniversary of Indian independence on 15 [More]
One moron train conductor managed to spoil the working day of dozens of passengers. Passengers were standing on the platform of the Nala Sopara station which is near Mumbai, India, on Wednesday when a high speed train sped right through the station. This would typically be a quite normal thing to happen, but recently heavy rain had fallen and the station was submerged.   Instead of slowing down the speed to a crawl, the conductor of the train galloped into the station at top speed, throwing the grimy rainwater that had submerged the tracks onto the platform where passengers were waiting. Most of them standing there were not exactly expecting the express to career through the station like that. In similar vein, an Amtrak train in New Jersey smashed commuters with snow last winter after heavy fall of snow covered the tracks. We’ll take snow over unclean rainwater any time [More]
