Does anyone know of a place where a heritage railway is mixed with a commuter railway?

Such as a commuter train works from monday to friday and little bit on the weekends.
During the open times on weekends a steam train would be able to operate for tourists.

Antique And Classic Car Club Is Perfect Place To Get Rentals

Within the members of the antique and classic car club you will find that some offer the services of the antique classic car rental. These members of the antique and classic car club are also ensuring that the vehicle is driven on a more regular basis than just the occasional Sunday drive, while still making money off it as an additional income, or just to contribute to the maintenance of the vehicle.

These antique and classic car club members ensure that these vehicles are only driven by themselves for functions such as weddings and prom nights. Since the in thing about prom night is to arrive in the flashiest of cars such as the limousine, the antique car would turn just as many heads on arrival.

Astounding Memorabilia

The lists of vehicles owned by some of the antique and classic car club members are also sometimes astounding, as some just collect them as memorabilia, but for the connoisseur of vehicles you will find the old fire engines and ambulances too. You may be quite surprised to find an old steam engine locomotive or tram in their collection too.

It is quite amazing what some people do collect. But if the spouse is okay with that then fine, otherwise it could be seen as another expense to build up and repair for a hobby, or just another dust collector as it may never leave the garage showroom you had specially built on to flaunt your collection.

Some people may think that some of the members of the antique and classic car club are wacky or just plain old eccentric to collect such stuff, but these people tend to have a keen sense of money by investing in these vintage, classic or antique cars.

Gone are Those Days!

Yes, these cars were the fastest in their time, as life way back yonder was at a much slower pace too. There was no rut to chase off to go to work early to beat the morning rush of robots out of order, or beating the freeway traffic jams. The only traffic jam was when you arrived in town, which was a good few miles away from home, and this is where everyone got together in front of their workspace if they could find parking.

They had to dodge horses and carts too, so there was not a chance they could go speeding down the main road of the town, which also was the only road in town. Yes, those were the days of harder but carefree living, and it seems you always had over enough time to get everything you needed to do, done!

Harassment at work place?

Thank you for pressing the link and reading this long answer, just please tough it out and give me some advice. Also please be mature about this. Be honest but now to brutal. Thank!

I work at a very well known children’s store. We recently got a new boss and at first she was very nice. Then she adjusted and became the typical bossy boss. I did my work as I did before fill like I was suppose to, rang up the guest with some minor problems nothing to big. Then one day she asked me to get a stuffed animal with a coin of a certain color. I did as I was told and we had the stuffed animal of the color she wanted but with no coin. I came out and told her and with a frustrated irritated voice told me to take off a coin of another stuffed animal and put it with the other one. I just brushed it off thinking maybe she was having a bad day. Then another time she had me fill one whole wall of boys clothes and toys so I did that and more. I went up to her and let her know I was done and ask her for the next assignment and she replied back “Go away, right now you do not exist to me. Go, go away.” The guest she was helping started to laugh. It felt a little bit deemining because I looked like an idiot standing there looking like I didn’t know what I was doing. But then again I brushed it off as if I’m being to sensitive. A week ago we just brought out our halloween costumes. I was steaming a certain dress that was going to be a best seller. So I decided to steam it extra special. 15 minutes go by and she comes out and said “Iced*, How hard is it to steam a child’s costume?” she grabbed the steamer out of my hands and steams a certain part really quick and said “Hmm, how hard is that?? Show me, show me how hard is it to steam a dress in less than 5 minutes.” Something like that. I tried to explain to her that I wanted to make the dress look extra pretty but before I could finish what I had to say she walked away. So when I did the next costume that was made of satin I did the way she asked me to quick and go. I picked up the mannequin and she goes “Don’t you think that needs to be steamed a little bit more?” That really pissed me off. I wanted to knock her head off with the doll. but I kept my cool and said ok.

My real answer is this: Am I being to sensitive? Or Is she really cruela de vill? I never in my life had to put up with people like this. Everytime I try to defend my self she cuts me off and goes. Also I’m not the only one she does this too. she does it to other people my age. Ever since she been acting like this I go to work stressing that she might fire me, or yell, or make me feel stupid. I’m about to be 20 in december and I’ve had 2 jobs before this.
Also we are pretty low with employment because of the economy so basically the company was desperate and begged her to come back and work for the company again.

I don’t want to leave this job because I like it and the perks.

A Little Place Called Bacolod Philippines

Experience a happy blending of cosmopolitan and rustic lifestyle in Negros Occidental, the sugar capital of the country. Celebrate nature’s blessings: waterfalls, caves, mountains, rivers, springs and valleys. Go hiking and camping, fishing and angling, scuba diving and snorkeling, mountain biking and sky diving with guidance from reliable locals. Travel centuries back in time visiting stately mansions in Silay City, one of the top 25 destinations of the Philippines. Or go on Iron Dinosaurs (steam locomotives) or other special interest tours.


There are varied accommodation and dining facilities from luxurious to simply modest. Rates are reasonable. Whatever you go for, Negros Occidental has it.


BRIEF HISTORY


Originally known as “Buglas” by its natives. This fourth largest island in the Philippine archipelago was given the name “Negros” by the Spanish navigators when Esteban de Rodriguez discovered the island in April, 1565 and found its earliest occupants to be dark-skinned natives belonging to the Negrito ethnic group. The natives then, occupied initially most of the southern portion of the province, being Binalbagan and Ilog. Two of the earliest native settlements which officially became towns in 1572 and 1584, respectively. Other settlements were Hinigaran, Bago, Marayo (now Pontevedra), Mamalan (now HImamaylan) and Candaguit.


In 1734, the island became a military district and Ilog became its first capital. Bacolod was made provincial capital in 1849. Then in 1856, Negros Occidental was raised to the category of a politico-military province. During this time, several more towns were established like San Carlos and Calatrava. Other towns were created, particularly Saravia, Escalante and Valladolid (1860) as a result of the growth of Population and the influx of immigrants coming from neighboring provinces such as Iloilo, Antique, Capiz, and Cebu. These growth in population and immigrants brought to the province in turn rapid material growth and development during the later part of the 18th century.


The major boon to the province at this time were two: the cultivation of sugar which brought economic boost as it later led Negros to pioneer other provinces in sugar production with its initial of 4,000 piculs of sugar in 1856 increasing to 2,000,000 piculs in 1897. With this, new machineries such as those operated by steam were used in the towns of Bacolod, Minuluan and Bago. Another boon was the opening of the ports like Iloilo and Cebu to foreign commerce.


During the last decade of the 19th century, several important events may be summarized: one, the making of Negros Occidental as a separate province in 1890. Two, the joining of the Negrense revolutionary leaders in the nationwide Katipunan Movement which overcame the Spanish garrison in the province on November 6, 1898 during one of the Filipinos?revolt against the Spanish rule. Three, the arrival of the Americans in the province in May, 1899 leading to the establishment of a Civil Government in Negros Occidental on April 20, 1901. Fouth, the ousting and surrender of the Japanese Forces in Negros (1945) after both civilian and military leaders in Negros Occidental pursued and organized a free government in the province.


After the upheaval and destruction brought by the first and second world wars, the next years following it, were dedicated to the rehabilitation and reconstructions of various sectors as Industry and Commerce, principally the sugar industry. Following this recuperation period, socio-economic growth in the province ensued.


LANGUAGE/DIALECT


Negrenses, as practically all Filipinos, are poly-lingual. Of the 87 dialects in the country, two Visayan dialects are predominantly used in the province: Ilonggo, which is spoken by 80% to 90% of the populace, and Cebuano which is used by the rest. English, however, is widely spoken; thus the English-speaking visitor will have little or no communication problem at all.


MAJOR INDUSTRIES


Negros Occidental is primarily an agricultural province. Of the total land area of 792,607 hectares, 588,145 hectares are arable land of which appoximately 419,305.084 hectares or 53% are devoted to agriculture.


With diversification as a major provincial development program, new land uses such as more inland fishing, livestock & poultry, grains and new crops like coffee, cacao, black pepper, orchards, ramie and others are increasing.


The province of Negros Occidental is reported by the Bureau of Mines to be rich in both metallic and non-metallic mineral resources, notably copper, gold, silver and molybdenum. Among the non-metallic minerals are stones, gravel, and sand and other construction materials, also salt and guano.


The socio-economic life of Negros Occidental from the 1950?s up to the 1980?s depended mainly on sugar, producing annually about 60% of the country?s sugar output. The four corners of the archipelago have focused their wide open eyes and melting mouth to the glory of the Negrenses. Negros is where high living and high eyebrows were.
