I follow this crust punk hobo dude on youtube who posts really long, really well-edited videos of the freight trains he hops, complete with careful captioning of the control points and locations and timestamping of the more interesting moments. He mostly rides BNSF trains through the west, but he was tramping through Mexico with a pal last year. Good stuff.

Well this is my weekend sorted. Thanks.

Research in recent months has suggested that hours-long train videos, left on the TV, are an excellent visual accompaniment to long proggy techno tracks and DJ mixes. Our scientists are continuing their investigations.

sorry, but i can't resist posting more youtuber with great taste in music to slowly revolved historical pics of local rail infrastructure, possibly not in the spirit of the thread, but fuck it!

I knew the Yurikamome Line would get on this thread, anyway, I'm not the least bit interested in trains but love watching these or having them playing in the background while I work.

If trains are a bit too exciting you could always go by bus. I was looking for the slow tv show which was on BBC4 a few years ago and found this instead.

big up riding the bus top deck reverie

Girlfriend is watching a yoga tutorial and I'm watching a tornado derail a freight train in Illinois. State of us.

(Love these, btw. Happy to just to watch Bidston-Wrexham from the driver's cab. Ideal.)

my fav channels are lorirocks777 and rail relaxation. the former's rides are a little less eye-catching all around but i like the grim winter light in some of the france videos. the latter has some all-time bangers, good stuff in italy, spain and austria.

nine months pass...

some favorites recently. this rear-view amtrak from la junta, co to albuquerque nm is uhh enchanting. makes me dream of small towns in the southwest. i did not know that trinidad, co was the site of some major coal strike violence in the early 1900s.

this train hopping video from denver to grand junction is so cool and beautiful

The almighty YouTube algorithm recently gave me personal railcarts on abandoned train tracks

ugh this one is so beautiful, through the mountains of honshu, early autumn. japan looks amazing. i would love to go some day. the built environment is so boxy and rectangular, i love it.

cloudy with a chance of cherry blossoms
