Beijing Subway Rush Hour

Beijing Subway Rush Hour

If you think your city’s trains are crowded, take a look at this video taken on Beijing’s Subway Line 13 at rush hour. The sheer number of people make getting out of the train a real challenge. They should get the TARDIS train.

A Train in His Basement

A Train in His Basement

Jason Shron has a slight obsession with VIA Rail trains. In fact, he spent 2500 hours creating a replica of one of their train cars in his basement – right alongside his Doctor Who toy collection.

Train Drops

Train Drops

A brand-new EMD GT46C-ACe locomotive is being unloaded from a cargo ship, when the unthinkable happens and the cables snap on the 145-ton train. We’re guessing this isn’t going to buff out.

Happy Train Guy

Happy Train Guy

We haven’t heard such inappropriate enthusiasm since the Double Rainbow guy. In fact, the guy in this clip is so excited by these train engines that we’re not sure if this clip is NSFW or not.

Train Plow

Train Plow

It might be 100°F outside in most of North America, but down in New Zealand, it’s Winter. Watch in awe as this KiwiRail train performs the Herculean task of clearing the tracks to make way for others.

Train to Hell

Train to Hell

We’re not exactly sure what’s gone wrong with this Russian train, but the imposing flames and soot bellowing forth from the smoke stacks on top make it look like it’s passengers are destined for Hades.

World’s Smallest Model Train

This ridiculously small model railroad is a “Z” scale model of an “N” scale train, or a 1:35,200 representation of the real deal. And here we thought this was the world’s smallest train.

Top Gear: Trains

Top Gear: Trains

The Top Gear guys leave the pavement and hit the rails, as they take their ridiculous car-powered trains (and distinguished passengers) on a ride down the tracks. Catch part two for the grand finale.

Man Pulls 100 Tons (Sorta)

Through focus, sheer strength (and grunting), Syrian strongman Adnan Ismail al-Awad pulls a 2.5 ton train up an incline, which he says makes it feel like 100 tons. Our backs hurt just watching.

Boardwalk Empire Subway Train

Boardwalk Empire Subway Train

To promote the 2nd season of Boardwalk Empire, HBO is running an authentic 1920s train in the 2/3 line of the New York City subway this September. This train’s first run was way back in 1917.

World’s Shortest Train

World’s Shortest Train

It doesn’t hold many passengers, but on the other hand the wait at this train crossing is about as good as it gets. Maybe this is what they the Monopoly guys were thinking of with the “Short Line.”

Mumbai Train Ride

Mumbai Train Ride

The trains in Mumbai, India have a reputation for being overcrowded, but these kids make riding on the outside of the train far more dangerous than it already is. Needless to say, don’t try this, EVER.

Maeklong Market

Maeklong Market

A train track runs directly through the heart of this market in the heart of Thailand, sending shop owners scrambling to move their wares out of the way each time the train comes barreling through.

Riding on the Metro… Alone

(NSFW: Language) This dude found himself completely alone on one of DC’s Metro trains and went a little nuts in his solitude. What would you do if you had the whole subway car to yourself?

L Train Surfing

L Train Surfing

We’ll start out by saying that we don’t recommend that you try this at home. We suggest you leave surfing on the top of moving trains to daredevils lunatics like this guy, who goes by the name “537.”
