    It’s a fetish thing. Like car revving and exhaust, only with trains and toilet flushing.

    Dude…That’s way too much time from one’s lifetime to be filming toilet bowls doing their thing…Respect…

    An autoplaying video of a toilet flushing. Why, yes that /is/ what I wanted to see…

    I miss the old days in the USA when the train toilets emptied out onto the tracks.  Nowadays they use retaining tanks which somehow always manage to leak odor into the passenger compartment.

    Listen to Don Preston’s synthesizer music from up above http://boingboing.net/2012/05/11/vintage-electronic-music-from.html while you watch for a whole new sense of eery isolation. Suddenly a toilet flushing becomes an interstellar wormhole.

    Toilets & Trains go together like Dungeons and Dragons!

    Gone are  the days when one could video a train or in a train station without being arrested or having their equipment confiscated. 

    This is pre  9/11, right?

      Thankfully, not here in Japan. 
      When new trains roll up or an old one retires, the rail-boys show up with cameras and lenses a-blazin’ to capture the moment! Outlawing cameras in proximity to trains in Japan would be like slicing out a piece of the cultural soul.
