Off to Alaska…

Alaska Railroad
Heading to Alaska to ride the Aurora Winter Train!

Just wanted to let you all know that I’ll be off traveling for the next week and a half, and there won’t be much in terms of tweets or facebook posts. I’ve scheduled some quick posts, so you will see those next week. If you’re a new visitor and try to comment, your comment won’t show up until I’ve approved it when I return. See you all soon!

Get a 3D Printed station sign

In case you missed my postings on Facebook and Twitter, I’ve been 3D printing 1:20 scale model station signs. They look like this:

They were originally created to be desk name tags, based on our area’s train station signs. They are available in single and double sided versions. The popular choice for most people seems to be their name on one side, and their favorite station on the other. If you would like one, you can put in a request here:

The last day to put in your request is next Thursday, November 15th.

I Ride The Harlem Line is now on Facebook!

I swear to you, I never thought this day would come. In fact, I was trying to hold out as long as possible. Alas, I gave in to the pressure, and you can now find I Ride The Harlem Line on Facebook. At first I debated whether it would be worthwhile to have a presence there, and what exactly its purpose would be. In the end I figured that there are a lot of photographs and explorations that I do that never make it to the site, and despite not having much to say about them, they are still worth sharing. Hence, the Facebook page was born. You’ll find some photos from this past weekend there – a visit to see everyone’s favorite subway cat, and even a quick look at a New Jersey Transit train on the New Haven Line for special game day service. You may also get some sneak peeks of photos that will be on the site, at least sometime in the future. If you have a Facebook account, you should definitely check us out, and maybe even like the page!
