    The Norwegian train+ship broadcasts actually became so popular that they copied it in the US. A train across Alaska. Google it and you've got another 5 hours of wilderness once you're done with the 134 hours at sea, lol!

    Yeah, well, you yanks never make use of that kind of precision anyway. "Nearest foot" seems to be good enough... :p

    Please stop. This is embarassing now... :oops:

    That sad part is that these kinds of show are more entertaining that the crap they usually broadcast. (I'm not even entirely sure that I'm joking here... :p)

    Look at the view count he's getting on the ad - all because he got the year wrong!

    Views are like Likes, right??

    When we moved to Ohio, my wife's family kept confusing Ohio with Iowa. They are Texans. :wideyed:

    I watched it up until about 5 minutes in to the second tunnel, which BTW started at around the 7~8 minute mark. At that point there had been maybe a minute not spent in the total blackness of the first tunnel. I used to be a professional drying paint observer. It was way more fun filled and exciting than this bit of train trip I watched.
    The only why i could imagine is a training aid for those looking to break into the drying paint observer corps.

  14. The real cheek in that ad, is the price for that piece of junk.

    My dad was running music stores in the mid sixties.

    His repairman took a Framus acoustic in for some work, and needed to replace a fret.

    He put a soldering iron on the fret to warm it up before pulling it, and it shot across the room. They were glued to the fingerboard, which was not slotted for tangs!

    But we're so used to CNC perfection to .0001" tolerances even on low end instruments that "crappy" feels "organic" and cool.

    You know, Rich, I often wonder what would happen if I played that bass now and if I would like it if I didn't try to make it into something it wasn't. Darn sure don't feel spending $800 to find out, but I do get curious from time to time.

    Mine was a 64. It is so not a 52. Wasn't even made in the 50's. I think the confusion with this guy stems from the model number ending in 52.

    Sometimes Reverb backfills data automatically and sometimes this data is incorrect, so it might not even be the original lister's fault.
