I'd laugh if they actually took this serious.

Killtown probably will:

Proof positive. I defy anyone to prove it is not true. How many skyscrapers 75stories or taller have ever collapsed before without the help of a freight train. Please show me even one and maybe I will believe the official story.

This site is a pretty old one, and a great one. But you should seriously email the guy this post. This would be a brilliant addition to their site. The funny thing is, with the above photo, Loose Trains actually has more physical evidence supporting it than Loose Change does.

Which, in all fairness, isn't saying much! I like the train theory, but where did they hide the rails?

And wouldn't it be fun to derail some of their threads with this, apropos of something or something else!

Well if they could rig the entire building with explosives without anyone noticing I'm sure attaching a rail track to the core columns would be no trouble.

That's a great post, thanks much, JAStewart. This stuff is serious, but levity helps to ease the pain. Levitating trains?!? OH NO!!!

All this time on the intro to 9/11 Fantasy Island, he was really saying:

While, I might believe that the WTC may have been taken out by trains, I'm a staunch no-trainer when it comes to the Pentagon.

I have very strong evidence that there was a train seen north of the Citgo station. Of course, I'm not prepared to release that evidence just yet.

The train was simply a diversion. It's common knowledge that when everyone sees a train they all turn and look and say "Oooh, a choo-choo!".

While everyone was looking at the train, the secret Delta Force team knocked down all the lightpoles and placed the newly developed explosive C-4 on the Pentagon.

A second group from the Mission Impossible squad led by Tom Cruise then dispersed body parts.

So clearing the Pentagon was not brought down by a train. (The whole is the wrong size and shape.)

I dunno Spin. Occam's Razor and all. I mean if you're going to destroy buildings with renegade giant trains - why not be consistent? Why the mix-n-match? The technology you attain in the staging and modelling and testing and stunting sessions is just too hard-won, in my humble opinion, to assume a TRAIN/plane Building Boom-Boom paradigm. I think it's one or t'other.

Now PAINTING a train to look like a Boeing 757, and then levitating it using magnetic flux force augmented by space beams for extra power? Like warp drive, you know?

I could discuss that, it's reasonable...

According to eye witness testimony the train was heard chanting the phrase "I think I can, I think I can, I think I can" over and over....

I think that the train was shot down over PA actually. The ''White Jets'' are obvious misquotes, ''White jets'' refers to the steam coming from the train!

Actually come to think of it, I firmly believe that JFK was taken out by a bullet TRAIN to the head, not a regular bullet.

I have evidence because i'm 1337. But, because i'm so 1337, i'm not releasing to you poor uneducated fools.

That pisture was the cover of a textbook I had once. "Introduction to Error Analysis".

Probably should be required reading for CTists.

Aw cmon, if you're going to post something interesting like that, at least give us a little bit of the backstory or at least a link to where we can find out more about it.

I show you raw evidence in the form of this picture. The 2 hour documentary I saw in 1990 (or 1989) dealt with this incident for about an hour. But the documentary has been covered up, and all of you are hypnotized into thinking this attack never happened.

ETA: But kidding aside. I knew this picture excisted, and just Googled for it. There's little info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gare_Montparnasse though.

Honestly, I think backstory would just ruin it.

What I wonder is, why didn't the boiler rupture when it hit the ground? Solidly built, or what?

They made things to last in those days!

Steel framed buildings? What steel framed buildings?

Steel framed buildings do not exist and have never existed.

And even if they ever did exist, none of them has ever collapsed before.

And even if they have collapsed, well, they were different than any of the other non-existent steel framed building that never existed before.

And even if they weren't different, well, they were, because I said so and besides, I read about it on some CT site on the internet. So there.

Oh, and besides, apparently everyone knows that the towers were pre-planted with trains running from the upper floors to the basement along the rails that were built into the concrete cores more than 30 years ago, just in case an occasion arose at some point to demolish the towers for no particular reason.

The tracks were disguised as elevator guides, of course. I'm not quite sure how the trains were hidden within the buildings for all these years, and I'm not sure how it could possibly be the case that nobody ever noticed or spoke up about them in the past 30 years, but hey, I'm just JAQing here so I don't have to actually make sense, right?

The train actually dissolved into 1-micron dust particles as soon as it hit the ground.

What you are seeing in the picture is a balloon image of a train, kind of like air bags? Impact, dissolve, dust cloud, inflate bogus train, snap pictures, hide pictures behind cigarette counter in Citgo station across the street to be discovered 5 years later.

Maybe it was this one...



(That's the Galaxy Express 999 for you non-anime fans.)

(and it pains me to make a joke about 9/11, but it's been long enough, and this was ridiculous enough, to elicit this response.)

No no no. The neocons want you to think that the 999 hit the WTC, but it was actually a false flag op by Captain Harlock in the Arcadia. Everyone knows Captain Harlock is a crypto-jew.

I thought they were "Stealth" Jews. A crypto-Jew would be the one who encodes all our "sekrit info" in dollar bills and the like.

Precision of racist terminology is important!
