Nett hier? Offenburg, Baden-Württemberg.

Pleasant small city to overnight in when travelling from Paris towards Hamburg and the Echte Norden. Very quiet in the night, was nice to hear the birds sing when falling asleep. Relatively inexpensive Ibis Styles hotel (although I don’t see what the “styles” refers to in this case) (not in pic).

@kupfers @tml Given that these kids now grow up with this as normal, it is going to get way worse in ten, fifteen years.

@maeow Oh, so it is on time today.

@maeow Ah right. I saw it on the board in Lille on Sunday evening but decided to go to bed rather than look at it (because, why?).

Okay. Irgendwie habe ich nun mindestens einen theoretischen Überblick, auf welchen irgendwannigen Wegen ich mal (nicht heuer, sicher auch noch nicht 2025 und mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit in mehreren Etappen) mir den Landweg nach China (und v.a. weiter) "erkämpfen" könnte.

1x in einer Russland-auslassenden (dafür Iran-beinhaltenden) als auch einer schnelleren Russland-so-rasch-wie-möglich-nach-Kasachstan-durchquerenden Variante.

@wrzlbrnft Das klingt doch relativ optimistisch!

Ah great

SNCF stops selling most international rail tickets
https://jonworth.eu/sncf-is-stopping-sales-of-most-international-tickets-a-decision-rooted-in-incompetence-and-communicated-with-malevolence/

Who does the Bundestag invite to talk about a golden era of international rail? Alain Krakovitch, boss of SNCF Voyageurs - responsible for this ticket mess 😡

@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

@smveerman @jon But surely they already wanted to do that, like, five years ago. That they start half a year after being rid of SNCF at least is curious.

Ein sehr schönes Projekt, das @partim da vorantreibt mit der Railwayhistory-Map. Es gibt einen dicken Daumen hoch von mir. Im frühen Stadium (soweit ich es beurteilen kann) schon sehr schöne Daten vorhanden und gut dargestellt. Wobei gerade der Blick auf Brandenburg stellenweise doch sehr frustrierend ist.

@jakob @AndreasSebayang Das was ich vorhabe*, ist mit OSM-Daten und automatisiert schwierig bis unmöglich. Auf meiner Seite fällt zudem eine streckenbasierte Netzbeschreibung heraus, die mit den gleisscharfen OSM-Daten herzustellen nicht ohne ist.

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

@jakob @AndreasSebayang Ja. Ich entwickle dafür auch meinen eigenen Renderer nebst eigener Beschreibungssprache. Da will irgendwann mal einen allgemeinen Renderer draus machen, aber die Zeit. Und Karten „malen” macht irgendwie mehr Spaß.

@AndreasSebayang @vorortanleiter Gibt schon den Personenverkehrslayer (das Icon mit der sitzenden Person), der für Nebenstrecken-Interrail-Planung extrem praktisch ist. Mal schauen, was sonst noch wird.

I could fly to Dublin in less than two hours (net). I could do the trip with fast trains and boats in a day.

Or I can stick to slow trains and take three days.

Either way, the journey starts here. And now.

@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

@martybarlow The terminal here isn’t half bad. You can walk here, there’s a cafè and the music they are playing is quite good.

@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

On the plus side …

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

Looks like we are eleven foot passengers. That’s quite the increase from my last Brittany Ferries trip from Bilbao where I was the foot passenger.

The line crew is here!

@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

I may just be a sentimental old fool, but sitting here in a calm corner of a ship racing west, stubbornly chasing the sunset, with a pint of the black stuff, a good book, and Frankie not being overly worried about the inevitable troubles ahead, could this, perchance, be happiness?

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

Good morning and land ahoy! I am cautiously optimistic that I may make my train.

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

I’m going to miss cheerfully singing “Bonjour” to everyone.

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

Train’s here, too. Now we just need to convince the crew to move it from its resting place to the platform.

(There’s been a family camping out in the little rain shelter by the platform. Is the ferry terminal closed overnight?)

partim, (edited )
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

They probably shouldn’t.

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

Technical problems with the train. Now we wait.

I wasn’t a fan of these units to begin with – extremely noisy, dreary interior, and very unergonomic seats.

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

In Wexford, the train runs down the main street along the harbour front. There aren’t any fences or anything, so it’s travelling at a brisk walking speed.

@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

A baggage rack in our carriage was rattling when the engine was at full speed. Some passengers complained to the guard who promptly went, got some cardboard, squeezed that in between the racks, and – voila! – fixed.

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

@smveerman The passengers did try that, but the vibrations from the diesel engine were stronger.

@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

Now off to explore Ireland with friends for a few days. We’ll pick this up later …

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

Didn’t the tube run there for a while?

partim,
@partim@social.tchncs.de avatar

And no, we are not here for the footy. Explains the ridiculous hotel prices, though.

@reseauxsansfil Si, certo!
