The weirdest thing happened while I was recording this railroad crossing. It malfunctioned! After a train on the Amtrak side of the crossing passed, the gated didn't go up. This caused the whole crossing to be stuck in the "on" position. Later, I found out the cause. A train got stuck on the trigger. He also ignored my messages to stop at the station. He got stuck at a GREEN signal and couldn't figure out what to do next. I sent him home for the day, as you'll see in a later video.

As far as we know, every diamond crossover ever built has ALWAYS been built with BOTH railroads' consent, but have you ever wondered what would happen if a railroad built a diamond crossover without the other's consent? Well, wonder no further. I was reading a railroad encyclopedia at a library and found a true story where this happened somewhere in New Jersey. One railroad wanted to build a diamond crossover, but the other refused. That didn't stop 'em. They snuck onto the property one night, dismantled the rails and built a diamond crossover. What happened next? Find out by watching this video. Enjoy!

I was filming some trains at one of my American Bullet Train Railroad Crossing for an upcoming Trainz Railfanning video when something weird happened. A NJ Transit train was leaving the station near the railroad crossing when an Amtrak train carrying empty train cars to a facility for servicing rear-ended the NJ Transit train. Wreckage from both trains spilled onto one of the Bullet Train's tracks and both Amtrak tracks, leaving only one Bullet Train track operational. At this point, it is unknown what caused this collision, but there is speculation that the installation of Positive Train Control could've prevented it. Also included in this video is some news coverage of the incident. It'll take a while to clean up this mess, but in the mean time, here's a video.

In this video, I'm going to test some payware railroad crossings I downloaded from Reggies Trainz (https://www.reggiestrainz.com/crossing-signals) I tested two of the TRC Wig Wag crossings and three TRC WCH Crossings. I tested these TRC crossings on sections of my CSX route where a train might have to stop in front of a crossing. I programmed the crossing so it wouldn't make cars wait for a stopped train. Various CSX trains will be testing these crossings.

In case you're wondering why the railroad crossings aren't making any noise, there's a glitch in this game that causes that to happen. The only way to fix it is by restarting the computer. After two tries, it still wasn't working... This is partially based on a real railroad crossing I saw in a YouTube video when I was a teenager. I took away the gates and replaced the BN locomotives with steam engines. Really, the only thing I left was the blizzard. Interestingly, it's been years since the last time I used the snow feature in this game.

When I was a kid, I used to ride on the NJ Transit Raritan Valley Line every week. An engineer gave me an official NJ Transit Signal Guide which explains all the signals on the railroad and what they mean. He also gave me a tour of the inside of a GP40FH-2B and when he found out I was making a replica of this line on my train simulator, he gave me an official track schematic (which I unfortunately lost in the move). In this video, I'll also tell a funny story of how I unintentionally caused the passengers to worry when I accidentally called out a "stop and proceed" signal as a "stop" signal.

This is a replica of a real crash of the German ICE. The train was travelling at its top speed of 186 mph when it derailed. The derailment destroyed an overpass causing the bridge to collapse on top of the train. This derailment was caused by a faulty wheel. The wheel broke apart while the train was moving. As it passed a switch, the broken wheel got caught on the frog and derailed.

We all know of the terrible repercussions that can occur from driving a car while under the influence of alcohol, but what about driving a subway car. Well, sadly, we don't have to worry anymore. Yes, in this episode of Trainz Crashes and Derailments, we're looking at a real crash in the 1990's. The driver of a NYCTA (4) Train was drunk. He drove too fast for the curved section of a switch and derailed. 5 people dies, over 200 injured. Occurring during rush hour, there were more than 500 people on board at the time. This man received 15 years in prison, but got out five years early. This episode of Trainz Crashes and Derailments is truly the weirdest I've ever done. You just don't hear of a drunk train driver everyday. Keywords: Trainz Crashes Trainz Simulator Crashes Trainz 12 Crashes Trainz Crash Videos Trainz Big Crash

In this Trainz Railfanning Video, we're visiting DeKalb Ave Subway Station in New York. It is located on the New York City Subway. The Subway you see skipping the station are the D and N lines, which don't stop at this station. You'll see mainly R46 Subway Cars and R32 Subway Cars stopping at this station. I also wanted to use Jeffmorris's subway cars, but I can't figure out how to program their destination signs when they come out of a portal.

This is a sneak peak of a future railfanning video. It's a replica of one of the most complicated road intersection/ railroad crossing I've ever done. So far, all I have is the traffic lights. I'll work on the crossing signs later. I built this crossing mainly for the purpose of testing the limits of my skills with the ATLS and NRC systems. Basically, I was trying to figure out, "What's the most complicated crossing I can create?"

In this Trainz Railfanning Video, we'll be visiting a tourist train. This is owned by a tourism company and owns many N&W locomotives and equipment on its roster, including steam locomotives. This tourist company owns all the railroad crossings in its system and decided to keep the wig wags for history's sake. There is one crossing that crosses a divided highway which has wig wags and added overhead flashers. Amtrak uses this line for power and equipment moves and CSX and UP occasionally send some freight down this line, but they have other lines nearby where most of their freight is sent. Though I don't have this route anymore, sense it did so well, I plan on reviving it.

On some NJ Transit railroad crossings, as well as on other crossings, the gates will go up if the train stops at a station. When the train is ready to leave, the train must inch forward just enough to turn the crossing back on, then wait for the gates to go back down. Once the gates are back down, the train will move. I finally figured out how to get the crossings in this game to do that.

This is a train station I built next to my Bullet Train Grade Crossing. I also added brake squealing sounds for when the trains stop. I added coupler sounds because some of these trains start up and stop WAY too quickly. I placed those sounds so you could get an idea of just how terrifyingly uncomfortable those rides would've been.

I live near this railroad crossing that doesn't make a sound. I started thinking, "what if it sounded like a railroad crossing from another country?" "That might be interesting..." So I edited in some sound from a Finnish level crossing. Enjoy this Norfolk Southern GP38-2 blowing its horn for a Finnish level crossing!

In this Trainz Railfanning video, we'll be watching some more CSX and Amtrak trains. I managed to fix the issue with the Amtrak trains stopping at the railroad crossings. I replaced all the TPL signals with NEC-style CPL signals. That seems to have fixed the problem. The other signals were creating false reds and slowing down the trains, causing a traffic pile-up. This route exists in a series of small towns that CSX and Amtrak run through. There are plenty of Grade Crossings on this route, so the trains will be blowing their horns a lot.

This is probably the crossing I've built in this game. It has 64 traffic lights, 40 crossing gates, 286 flashing lights and a 24-lane, 4-way intersection crossing a two-track railroad at a 45-degree angle. In this video, I test all the gates to make sure they're all working.

Well, I was working on a new Trainz Railfanning Video. This was going to be a railroad crossing with all the high-speed trains. The Shinkansen, The Acela Express, the TGV, the ICE, etc. Unfortunately, the game was to slow to run this large railroad crossing. As I tested it, the game got slower and slower. Eventually, the lag was causing the railroad crossing to malfunction. The Shinkansen gates kept getting stuck half-way down, they also kept vibrating in a strange way. Eventually, the gates went up before the train finished crossing because the game was too slow to keep the gates down. They immediately went back down and got stuck that was throughout the remainder of the video. I don't think I'll be using this crossing in the future...

This is part two of the video I made earlier called, "Unstoppable: facts the movie missed." In this video, I retest whether or not one SD40-2 in reverse can catch up to two SD70's. This time I added another factor: uphill grades. Will this slow down the train so that I can catch up to it? Find out in this video.

In this Trainz Railfanning video, we'll be visiting a fictional station at Metropark, NJ operated by Amtrak, Shinkansen, and NJ Transit. There are two Island Platforms. One for southbound trains and one for northbound trains. On the southbound platform one track is used solely by the Bullet Trains which operate from Portland, Maine to Washington, D.C. or from Boston to Chicago, while the other is used by both southbound Amtrak trains and southbound NJ Transit Trains. On the northbound platform, one track is used for northbound Bullet Trains, which operate from Washington, D.C. to Portland, Maine and from Chicago to Boston. the other northbound track is for northbound Amtrak and NJ Transit trains. There are two tracks in the middle of the station for Shinkansen trains that skip the station. There are also two elevated tracks for Amtrak trains that skip the station.

I showed my little sister the episode when Gordon, James and Henry went on strike when they were tired of shunting. She could not stand them after that. She said, "Seriously, they're tired of doing their job?" To be honest, I can understand why they would be upset. Neither of them were designed to pull freight. I'm guessing whoever built them probably told them what they were meant to pull or something else happened during construction to make them believe they weren't meant for shunting. Either way, I'm surprised Sir Topham Hatt didn't threaten to scrap them.

In this Trainz Railfanning video, we visit Allentown, PA. This is a replica of a railroad crossing that crosses 12th & Vultee St in Allentown, PA. This railroad crossing is operated by the Norfolk Southern Railroad. I created this route in Trainz: A New Era to honor my favorite railroad crossing in Allentown, PA. The trains you see going through here are mostly based on actual trains I saw while railfanning at the real railroad crossing. The bell sound effects you hear at this railroad crossing were all created by me. Enjoy! - Trainfan1055
