    This is Illinois Slim's Smoker Steam Train Engine (previously on Geekologie: this beautiful steampunk train grill). It's got all the bells and whistles (literally -- it has a bell and whistle). Plus several places to vent the steam so you can pretend you're a real train engin... / Continue →

    "Come on, put your backs into it!" -- guy in blue hat not helping. This is a short video from a train station in Perth, Australia, in which commuters rally to tilt a train car enough to free a man who is not very good at boarding trains (you can see him get stuck at the very b... / Continue →

    This is a video of some jackass trying to take a video of himself right in front of a train as it passes. Thankfully, the conductor, who clearly identified this little nobgoblin from a mile away, boots him in the face. Some people are speculating it's fake, which I don't thin... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 141-car model train traveling in an infinite spiral and loop. I like that couch. I think my parents had the same couch when I was a kid. OR DID THEY? Dum dum dum! Now that I think about it I think ours was different. You know how much cereal I lost in... / Continue →

    This is the old west time-traveling train from Back to the Future III recreated in LEGO by Back to the Future and LEGO fan Masashi. It's an electric set and works on LEGO train tracks, but is currently only a LEGO Cuuso project and will undoubtedly be denied manufacture by LEG... / Continue →

    No Hogwarts for you! This is a short video of a 10-year old who falls on the train tracks while walking and gaming (not to be confused with walking-and-texting related incidents). He takes a pretty nasty spill, but thank God there was no electrified rail or train coming. PAY... / Continue →

    This is a video of some crazy Ruski (I can tell by the video quality and general disregard for life) who sets up a camera and then lies perfectly still between the train tracks while a locomotive (CHOO CHOO!) passes over him. Now I'm not saying dude doesn't have a lot to live ... / Continue →

    This is a video created by Graeme Taylor aboard a high-speed train using a high-speed camera, replayed in slow motion (just like the title says!). The result is pretty spectacular. It's like Max Payne/Matrix "bullet-time". So watch it and enjoy. Then, get all comatose on tu... / Continue →

    The Light Beam coffee table may look like alien technology, and it probably is. That or it's from the future, one or the other. Or both. Did your mind just explode? Mine did. Hey this coffee tastes like brains. The Light Beam coffee table is packed with thousands of littl... / Continue →

    D-Barcode is a Japanese firm that will design your barcode to look cooler than the standard bunch of lines. These are some examples of their work. But it doesn't come cheap! And, despite what you may have read above the urinal, neither do I. It can be pretty pricey, though:... / Continue →

    This is some French guy making a little superconductor train out of a bunch of magnets and a cup of magic potion. I have no idea what's in the magic potion but that won't stop me from chugging a whole chalice in the hopes of floating. Plus, it even works upside down which is ... / Continue →

    I like trains, and not just because they go CHOO CHOO. I also like the hobos that jump on them! THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME, OKAY? Anyway, this is a Thomas the Tank Engine/Voltron mashup toy available from Singapore for around $8. It is in no way shape or form licensed or legal. ... / Continue →

    In a no-holds barred, knock out, drag out cage track fight, we've got the much anticipated Train vs. Tornado matchup! In the red corner, weighing in at a couple trees, a really confused cow and a bunch of rain, THE TOOOOOORNADO! And in the blue corner, weighing in at more ton... / Continue →

    This is a recent commercial from T-Mobile that is almost identical in execution to this stunt (the second video), except there's like a billion times more dancing in this one. Basically a bunch of confederates (damn you, the north!) are walking around in a train station when t... / Continue →

    Okay, last time it was text messages, but still. Apparently close family members of Chuck Peck, a passenger who died on impact as a result of the recently crashed Metrolink train, received 35 calls from him the night of the accident. It is logical to assume that the phone c... / Continue →

    Remember the picture of the Chinese military on Segways as part of an anti-terrorism exercise? Well it turns out there's a whole bunch more of them performing various drills. And I've posted them here for your viewing pleasure. This is one of the group practicing their synch... / Continue →

    In public transportation news, police in Bucharest, Romania are looking for some chick that performs pole dances on the city's subway between stations and then uses AN EMPTY KFC BUCKET to ask for donations. That's actually her in the picture (that looks like it was taken with ... / Continue →

    This is the job I want when I grow up. And no, not because it gives you a great opportunity to cop the occasional feel. Oshiya, or "pusher", is an informal Japanese term for a worker who stands on the platform of a railway station during the morning and evening rush hours, and... / Continue →
