Please move to the center of the vehicle and away from the doors

This weekend I made a visit to the Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth. In addition to the expected trains, they had, tractors, buses, and other vehicles that complimented the rail system including a Westinghouse C-100 Automated People Mover.



This was pretty cool because I'd never seen one of these cars outside of the Atlanta Airport terminals and you don't ever get to see the outside because you're always inside. The museum says they have #1 and #53. Since there's only one sitting out there right now and I don't see any numbers on it, I don't know which one this is. I'll guess #53 since there's an empty space in front of it. I believe all the C-100's were replaced with the Bombardier CX-100 back in 2001 or so.

As long as we're in that mode, watch this Servotron video for the song People Mover:



Servotron is the best robot band ever. Ever. I dearly miss them almost as much as I do Man or Astro-man? I saw Servotron once at the 40 Watt in Athens. Nothing can compare. Nothing will. Ever.
