New York’s Grand Central Terminal is one of the country’s largest and busiest public transit structures, and now it has a new website that honours its outsize legacy. Based on the Grand by Design exhibition that was on display at the station last year, the website includes historical documents, videos, stories, and rare, previously unseen photos of the building throughout the years.
What would you like in a house? A roof. Central air is nice. Some insulation probably. Maybe a fireplace if you like that. A yard for the kids with a white picket fence for your dreams. What about a freaking rideable scale train that goes completely around the entire property? Yeah, you know you want that. You want it bad.
It’s easy to forget how beautiful the world is when we shackle ourselves inside all day. Maybe on the weekend we’ll take a hike, we say. Maybe next month we’ll make a trip out to the woods, we plan. But even if we do all that, we still don’t see it enough. Good thing photographers like Brian Donovan are capturing the world’s beauty to remind the rest of us to get out.
Oh my. This is beyond scary. A 1.6km-long train carrying crude oil derailed near a small town in the US state of North Dakota and sent explosions, flames and dark black smoke into the sky. Luckily (and almost unbelievably), no one was hurt in the accident that looked a lot more like a nuke exploding than a train derailment.

It’s almost time to pack your bag again, tuck some presents under your arm and find your way back to your family. You might take a plane, drive a car or ride a train. Some of you might just walk. But Dan Croll — he takes the Tube.
Last week’s deadly commuter train derailment in the US was an undeniable tragedy. It’s also one that could potentially have been avoided regardless of human error. An automated train speed control system already exists, but neither US Congress nor the rail transportation industry has actually gotten around to installing it.
This one’s for the people who give you more reliable subway directions than HopStop, who can describe to you, in detail, the metro map in any given city, and who want to ride the bus “just because.” These transportation-themed gifts will fare well for any and all overzealous public transit enthusiasts in your life. Just don’t get them started on that new light rail line to the airport.
