San Francisco, CA - BART Schedule Animation Information
a Java applet showing a simulation of on-schedule Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system operation in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you resize or iconify Netscape, the simulation will start over from the beginning. The simulation starts out at 60:1 time speed-up (1 minute in the schedule takes 1 second in the simulation). The schedule starts in the early morning; initially there are only a few trains running. If your machine can not keep up as more trains are added to the schedule, the speed-up factor will ramp down. Outside the morning and evening commutes, when less trains are running, the speed will increase again.

Screw dowels (trenails) on the Santa Fe
This article is about trenails, also called screw dowels. These are described in the 1904 Proceedings of the American Railway Engineering & Maintenance-of-Way Association:

"Attention has been called to a method developed abroad, whereby the wear under the rail or at the spike in a soft wood tie can be materially decreased. This consists of the insertion of a hardwood trenail, so-called, being a wood screw of two or three inches diameter, having a spike hole bored in the center. This trenail is screwed into a hole tapped in the tie, and a spike driven or screwed into it..."
