No way. I heard you can goto jail for that.

I used to put pennies on the train track but then someone told me it could derail the train and kill everyone. While it seemed like it would still be fun, i had to travel from Toronto via Train to london. The whole way there I was fearing i laced my own track with pennies. Never did it again.

Did Canadian Tire really go to the trouble of printing a certificate for 5 cents?

A typical 6 axle locomotive weights 200-250 tons. I don't think it cares about a penny on the track.

I've put larger things than pennies on the rails...train didn't care. I've 'stacked' multiple coins on the rails and made some cool looking forms of what was money.

I am currently holding a $10 in my wallet...a rarity for me to have cash.

Oh yes, Canadian Tire money starts at 5 cents and I have about $18 left in total (other denominations as well)






mmmm rambling words to follow.................................


Why are the coins so hard to find after laying them on the tracks. I wanted to show my kids but we couldn't find anything.

Scary thought:

So if a person welded a ramp on one side or drilled a hole in one side of the tracks and secured a large enough piece of steel would it derail? I mean how hard would it be for terrorists to do that to say 50% of the tracks all in one day and cost us lives and billions of $. Tracks are so easy to access. Imagine derailing a train right next to a factory or building. Seems like a gaping hole that could be easily messed with.
Or is it much harder to derail than I am thinking ?

In other news Canada is so cool that we have 2 piece coins. I mean who else has interferance fit coins out there? USA can't even afford to color code their bills unlike Canada............... "We have the technology"................


Who has or keeps a stash of cash in there car be it hidden or in the console?
I used to keep $5-$20 in my 87 16V GTi behind the steering wheel access panel (before air bags) for emergency. Now I just keep coins in the Miata for car wash etc.

I think your making it harder then it would have to be, if one wanted to derail a train I think explosives or cutting out sections of the track would probably be the way to go.

I think he was inquiring more about the general vulnerability of the track itself. Suicide bombing implies that the bomber would be on the train with people (as targets) as it wouldn't make sense to go all "derka derka derka mohammed jihad" on a set of tracks, when one doesn't have to to get the jihad done. (c wat i did ther)

This is what I currently have with me. I had more last week, but since then I've spent some cash and sold off some coins.

I always like to keep $100 bill hidden away for emergency, about $100 in $10's and $20's and a couple hundred hidden in my laptop bag for a rainy day. Not to mention about $20-$30 in singles for coffee in the morning in my car.

The coins and silver are only 50% mine and that's after I sell them. I debated buying them from the guy, but I make out better if I sell them for him instead. Roughly $1250 in coins and silver.

Topped off with a $2600 deposit check for painting the building. I'll probably hold off cashing it for another week or two. I like to get a jump start on the work before I cash the deposit.

As I was typing this $175 just came through PayPal too.
