But that could never happen here.  We don't need to invest any more money in our roads or bridges.  This is fine.

The train was traveling on an elevated part of the city's rapid transit system on the newest Line 12

Someong got some nice bribes is my guess.

Yep, that happens when you've got government monopolies instead of marginal oversight of private companies. shiat lasts two or three years instead of 10 or 12.

Subway trains in many cities go above ground for portions of their runs. Some crazy late night ignorance going on here.

Wanna hear a weird coincidence?

30 minutes ago I was watching an old episode of "Are You Afraid of The Dark?" from when I was a kid called "The Tale of Train Magic", where a kid boards a ghost train that crashed 80 years prior.

FTFA: The train was traveling on an elevated part of the city's rapid transit system on the newest Line 12, also known as the Golden Line, when part of the overpass collapsed onto traffic below

I guess they're gonna have to rechristen it the Brown Line.

Imagine going back home from work. You're tired, you're hungry, you just want to rest and watch tv, maybe have sex with your romantic partner. Then a train crushes you from above.

In NYC, while we call the entire system a whole the subway, trains that run on tracks overhead we call the  "El" short for elevated.

Probably like NYC where the entire system is called the subway though there are parts that are elevated. All those lines eventually make their way underground.

In Los Angeles, the Blue & E line trains start (or end, depending on the direction you're headed) underground, where they link up with the Red/Purple subway lines.  The E line is also elevated for a portion of its run.

Lots of the London underground is actually overground particularly out towards the outskirts. They still call it the underground. Probably the same for many metro / subway systems including Mexico City's - underground in the middle, overground / elevated on the outside.

America is exceptional! We don't need no stinking bids. If we want supply runs or an overpass, we'll just hire the Cheney Family and Company.

I do believe he is referencing the Chicago Brown Line elevated train, Though it did not collapse there was an accident some years ago when an elevated train derailed and crashed to the street down below.

In NYC, while we call the entire system a whole the subway, trains that run on tracks overhead we call the  "El" short for elevated.


Whereas in Chicago, while part of the system runs underground, we call the whole system the "L" for eLevated.

\ Because in truth most of it is elevated and the subway sections are relatively new and short.
\\ Chicago is basically in a swamp, underground isn't as easy here.

Either use the old names (Blue and Expo) or the new letters (A and E for the light rail; B and D for the subway).  Don't mix them; makes my head hurt.

/yes, I know this means "Expo" is a "color"

There is actually a separate system called the London Overground.

When you feel these hands crushing your throat, your last words won't be an appeal to God.  They will be, "thank you, Killbane."

I only heard the of the Expo line change to 'E' like last week.  I didn't realize the names of all the other lines were changed too.  I've kinda been cooped-up indoors, for most of the past year.  :-/

Good thing that the USA has such a robust infrastructure that is totally in zero need of replacement or maintenance that nothing like that could ever happen here - Republicans told me so.

First of all, if I was a boomer, wouldn't I have more knowledge on crapping pants?
Second of all, if we were to call ALL lines in Mexico "brown" lines just because they are in Mexico, that would create a lot of confusion.

/and if you haven't realized yet, I'm still joking
