Tidbits and links rounded up about transportation in the past week. These are fun. I promise.

    The glide video and the subway train yard video led me to this time-lapse video: the Long Island Railroad from Penn Station to Long Beach in 2 minutes. Interestingly, the landscape and railway infrastructure looks a lot like this classic film from the golden age of trains: London to Brighton in 4 Minutes.

    (Of course, there are a lot of SkyTrain videos out there as well, but I’ve exhausted my link quota.)

    I meant “Glide 2” with a capital “G,” not “glide.”

    And then you can check out this: an animated map, showing the 24-hour operations of the Long Island Railroad, based on train schedules. (They also have them for operations in New Jersey, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, and Chicago.) Very cool.
