Kiper is officially on the Tannehill-to-Dolphins train. Choo Choo
2012-04-04 23:50:00
ESPN this afternoon released Mel Kiper's second-to-last mock draft of the 2012 pre-draft season. As you're all certainly aware, Kiper's three previous mock drafts this year had the Miami Dolphins selecting Iowa tackle Riley Reiff. Not so, this time around. Kiper took a cue from fellow ESPN draft puppet Todd McShay and the majority of analysts at NFL Network and slotted Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill into the Dolphins' selection at No. 8 overall. Kiper justified the pick by pointing out that Miami "lacks a long-range plan at quarterback," but said he wouldn't endorse Tannehill as someone who can start right out of the box. Kiper notes that Tannehill has an enormously high ceiling and makes sense in a situation where he can develop behind a starter who is already in place, especially considering the rate at which Tannehill developed during his brief time as a starting quarterback for the Aggies. "Tannehill's already sound mechanics and skill set imply a bright...
The Train in Spain: Essential information about trains and fares
2012-04-04 16:34:00
Regina Bryan’s interesting article here on EuroCheapo last month sparked a discussion on rail fares in Spain. So we thought a few thoughts on Spanish rail travel might be in order. The hop-on-at-will culture that prevails in many European countries when it comes to long-distance rail travel simply does not apply in Spain. All long-distance services in Spain and even the majority of inter-regional (or medium-distance) trains need to be pre-booked. Access to departure platforms at principal stations is strictly regulated, with only those holding a valid ticket and seat reservation for the upcoming departure being allowed through to the platform. On premium services, luggage is screened in X-ray machines. Seville Santa Justa station. Photo © hidden europe Grand design So the whole mood of many Spanish main-line stations is more like that of an airport. This is not unique to Spain. Travelers on the Eurostar services that link London with the continent will be familiar with check-in p...

The Night Train from Madrid to Paris: The Elipsos experience
2012-03-28 16:25:00
Madrid Chamartín station has little of the appeal or the convenience of the Spanish capital’s main rail hub at Atocha. Located near the city center, Atocha is extravagant and exuberant. The classic art nouveau train shed, now a superb indoor tropical garden, stands cheek by jowl with architect Rafael Moneo’s assertive late-20th century new add-on terminal. The modern Atocha looks more like an impressive airport than a railway station, and indeed its entire way of working is more akin to an airport. Chamartín, tucked away in Madrid’s northern suburbs, is the poor relation. It is convenient for the Real Madrid stadium and not much else. Indeed Chamartín has a football theme. The station was built in the run-up to the 1982 World Cup which was hosted by Spain. The Elipsos dining car.

Indian Railways To Launch GPS Train Location Tracking Service
2012-03-28 08:38:00
Indian Railways is looking at launching a service which will help passengers track its trains in real-time using Google Maps, a functionality very similar to GPS navigation. This will make it easy for travelers to access and track track their trains from their computers and mobile devices. Economic Times reports that the Center for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) has partnered with the prestigious Indian Space Research Organization to develop a GPS-based solution. This technology can provide the location of a train accurately down to 10 meters and at a maximum time latency of 2 minutes which makes it almost real-time by practical standards. Besides helping travelers, this new GPS device is mainly being installed to avert collision between trains and prevent any loss of life. CRIS has integrated this GPS device in Google Maps and ISRO’s INSAT-3C will help in tracking the trains. This project is large scale and hence CRIS plans to allocate Rs. 70 crore to the project. A pilot pr...

A dream ? Lebanese train from Beirut to Paris
2012-03-17 09:54:00
The last time a train has traveled to Lebanon, it was in 1995. In 1991, there had been that “Peace Train”, which had sprung from Beirut to Byblos, as a symbol of the resurrection of the country. Then nothing, or very little. Some people still want to believe and projects are regularly updated. One proposes to reactivate the line Beirut-Jounieh-Chekka, Beirut Antelias, Jiye Jounieh, Jounieh-Chekka, or Aboudiy Tripoli, or the Syrian border … Nice projects, which remain a dead letter in the absence of political will. Bechara Hanna Assi, president of the union of railways, has a dream. It does not necessarily require that the Taurus Express, linking Paris to Beirut, resume service. No, every little section over which circulate a train, fill with happiness. Just to hear again, the train whistle. Source: L’Orient-Le Jour.

They like also its galloping rails, which are rough enough to thrill but not sufficiently out of line or surface to derail ... You Might Also Like:How Virginia’s Huckleberry Train got its name

san fernando train station
2012-01-16 14:50:00
The old San Fernando Train Station, located at a grassy residential area in the province of Pampanga, could be easily be mistaken as an abandoned warehouse, if not for the historical markers installed in its vicinity. This station was inaugurated on February 23, 1892 and was part of the Manila-Dagupan Line of the Manila Railroad Company. It is no longer in use anymore today. But during the station's heyday, it witnessed two important events that unfolded in Philippine history. It is said that Jose Rizal once alighted this station in 1892, to visit some friends in San Fernando and Bacolor. He wanted to recruit additional members for the La Liga Filipina, a civic organization which he founded that pushed for moderate reforms from Spain. This organization was one of the important dominoes that tumbled many others, including Andres Bonifacio's Katipunan Movement, which then led to the Philippine Revolution in 1896. There is also a Bataan Death March marker propped near the o...

Bronx native and internationally-revered songstress/actress, Jennifer Lopez, is under major scrutiny for a recent Fiat commercial that she appears in. First, the ad was criticized when it was discovered that J. Lo's parts were actually shot in Los Angeles and not the New York City streets that the producers would actually have you believe (Brooklyn Bridge and the elevated 6 Train). Now, the ad is under more fire as a copyrighted graffiti mural (I Heart The Bronx) by the infamous Tats Cru was used without permission. Ms. Lopez and Co. can definitely expect a call from their lawyer. Yikes!
