Every postwhore is or has done something really neat in college. I admire that.

Considering it's 1:30am here, I think I'm tough out of luck on getting any. Not even the trams operate at this hour (well, except on Friday and Saturday nights).

Coming up next, Kiwi trains.

UNINTENTIONALLY FUNNY RAILWAY ACRONYM TIME

Let me introduce you to alien birds.

The most common type of train for commuter service these days is the electric multiple unit, or EMU. Basically, this is a set of (semi-)permanently linked carriages of which at least one is motorised, with power provided by (typically overhead) lines.

Now, Wellington's predominant type of EMU consists of two-carriage units. One carriage is motorised, the other is unmotorised. These two-carriage units can be run in multiples of up to four, creating eight-carriage trains. Now, the motorised carriage is classified EM (m for motor), and the unmotorised carriage is classified ... yes, t for trailer, ET.

So here's an EM/ET EMU rocking into Paremata station.

See, this stuff isn't all dull rivet-counting.

Here's another EM/ET EMU, this time travelling away from Paremata alongside Porirua Harbour.

I would love to do that sometime. Personally I'm studying to become a college creative writing teacher and maybe theater teacher. At the same time get a job as a literary magazine editor.
