How is it possible? I was sure that all the interstate highways in the USA have separated opposing directions of travel, separated by a central reservation, a traffic barrier or just a strip of grass...

Or maybe I do not understand well what does it mean "play chicken"? Move towards each other until one of players turn aside, isn't it?


In this case, it is a reference to trying to pull infront of a semi truck as close as possible, often while intentionally being in their front blind area.

Hmm... Is it allusion to the "Friday the 13th" film?
Do you already have a TT-killer?.. :o


Yes, and I am working on modding one of my TT figures to have a set of coveralls, machete, and hockey mask. I plan on building an Elm Street residential module at a later time.

If you really want to experience stressful driving conditions, come to South Florida, particularly Miami and Hialeah!

That is most certainly real, and is a visual definition of the word clusterfuck.

That is Sao Paulo, Brazil.

I finally found and uploaded a video to YouTube of my display layout from the 2013 NTS:

Very interesting! :thumbup:

What's the reason for your Swiss passenger coaches to run so bumpily? :?:

Their flanges are a bit deeper than everything else on the layout, and in effect, they were bumping on bits of ballast that the other train cars were not even touching.

That, and the trucks are not as tightly on, compared to the other trains running, which amplified the wobble.
