I got to thinking a little while ago about how good starting a thread on Youtube. Well, after all of this time thinking and pondering about it. I have
finally taken the time to get this thread in motion. So, here it is.........This is Yourtube!! Feel free to post any of your favorite Youtube videos
that you like or that you have done yourself.
Also, feel free to comment on each others videos.
I'll start it off with a few that I have done over the past two years.
Here is the very first Youtube that I shot over two years ago.
Forgive me though, because at the time I sounded a little bit on the dorky side.
Excellent job on the guitar videos man.
That first video reminded me of a song that the Allman Brothers and Eric Clapton did back in the early 1970s. However, for the life of me I cannot
remember the title.
Hellmutt. excellent video as per the usual with you.
Two things that I noticed about the entrance to the tunnel.
One is the fourty five degree double crossovers that are just outside of the tunnel entrance. I haven't seen one of those type in my life. Even
though we may have them in other parts of the United States. Second thing that I noticed is the antenna protruding out between the latice work of the
steel. Are the antennas used for relaying how fast the LRC is going and at what point on the system it is at?
I don't know. Maybe you can find something here? I know that if one train start going
backwards by mistake, then all trains on the same system goes backwards as well. It happened a few times, and I was onboard on one occasion. Suddenly
it started going backwards. All the passengers went: "Oh, no!" and then we had no choice but to wait. Then when we got to the wrong station in the
opposite direction, we had to switch to a train going in the other direction. Wasted some time there. I've heard that the architect of the system
said that he would never ever dare to ride the metro himself, as it's "too dangerous". That might be an urban legend, though, but I'm not sure...
You know, for the life of me I wouldn't want to be on something like that just to have it start rolling backwards. I bet that backed the system up
though with you guys having to switch trains. I see that the system they used is sort of based off of the Advanced Train Control System, A.T.C.S. for
short, that we have in certain parts of the United States. So basically, the system that they use is almost like what we use over here. That being it
makes it cost efficient and safer for train control operations. As for the designer of the system being to scared to ride on the system. Maybe he
knows something about it that the City of Copenhagen wasn't told. Then again, it could be nothing more than an urban legend like you said. Even
though it was designed by Union Switch & Signal, or Ansaldo STS-USA as it is now known by.
I'm currently working on a Youtube compilation video that I started earlier this week. I should have it finished by tomorrow evening and uploaded to
Youtube by either Monday or Tuesday. So keep an eye out on both Youtube and BTS until then.
