I got a train to catch

Recommended Posts

Did you obey all traffic signals? (ho, ho, ho)

 

The eggbeater is a good way to display those close-to-the-ground screenshots.

 

Nice pictures of some nice scenery - I'll have to save up some more pocket-money....

Good work Jack.

Out of curiosity - does it just traverse a few hundred yards across the runway, or the track is longer than that?

& where does one find the train timetable?:)

Hey Jack,

 

Is this a flightsimulator with a train add-on or a trainsimulator with a chopper add-on.

The railway crossed the runway, correct?

I’ve got a ticket to ride! :lol:  But tell me Jack, why would you need to catch a train when you are already in a nice mode of transportation? :rollmyeyes:  Nice photos of you chasing that train though!

Thanks TTM!  I didn’t follow it all the way but I think it doesn’t go too far.  You set the time to 1300 and wait for it.

Thanks Fred! It’s cool isn’t it?  Yes, the railway actually crosses it similar to Malta I think or is it Gibrater?

If you could lower somebody on a rope, you could pull the perfect train robbery... :P

That would ne cool, like a movie.  Wonder if I could make a comic out of that idea?

I hope you had booked your ticket in advance, Jack. That train is really crowded these days in early spring, lots of crazy tourists around.

Is this a train or The A Train Jack?

 

A wonderful addition to the scenery and very nicely done too.

I like the people stood on the back of the observation car.

I'll have to, this one was just an inspection flight and I was delighted to see it moving, it really is the coolest thing!

Thanks martyr, I thought the same exact thing, I liked the people in the car.  Thanks to Buffy she has given me comic inspiration for Fred and the gang.

Very good shots, Jack. I know there's a runway in Pakistan which is crossed by a railway, too. I wonder if there are accidents of gear struts getting teared off? We all know the hump when driving over tram rails. :wacko:

Jack, cooler than cool--as usual. FYI Gibralter has the famous highway crossing of the runway. Don't know about Malta. Now, back to the question--where did you find such a realistic train for the ORBX scenery?

I can't imagine an airport in this day and age having an active railroad crossing a runway but you show the evidence and that's it - good job.  Gisborne - wasn't he a real baddy in 'Robin Hood'?

I'm not sure about Robin Hood OND, but it is amazing isn't it?

How cool is that, great set Jack! :D

Thanks Adam!  It's very cool to see a steam train moving slowly along the tracks across a runway.

This thread could be "endless"(not that I'm grumbling).

 

Without checking, I remember there is a steam train among the train traffic at Orbx Southampton (England) and I think I also saw trains between a couple of USA airfields (adjacent towns) and alongside a German one. Like shipping, it all adds to the ambience.
