A map of the route of the train in Snowpiercer, for those who were interested/speculating about it at the last stream. (Click to embiggen.)
The train initially departed on the east coast of the US and travels clockwise around the track. It doesn’t “circle” the globe in a literal sense, but rather travels in a loop that skirts but never crosses the Atlantic.
ETA — forgot to cite sources :D This is a screencap from the film (actually from the educational film in the classroom scene) overlaid with Googlemaps screengrabs so you can see the actual countries.
I wish this existed
Ernest Hemingway, born 115 years ago today, shoots his cat – moving short read.
The Southwest Chief is a passenger train that travels daily between Los Angeles and Chicago, through the vast grandeur of the fabled American West. The original Super Chief made its first run in 1936, and was known as the “Train of the Stars” famous for its gourmet meals and celebrity clientele. The train as it is presently known has been operating since 1971, and traces most of the original route, past such magnificent landmarks as the Grand Canyon, red cliffs of Sedona, and the Continental Divide. The memorable ride carries passengers from the heartland through the haunting and spectacular desert scenes of the west, all the way to the tinsel of Hollywood.
It’s dumb when your injuries don’t look nearly as gruesome in pictures as they do in real life.
