「火車男」- The Guy with the Train in his Basement


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

Hi, I'm Jason Shron, and I love VIA trains. In fact, I love VIA trains so much I built one in my house. So here's my basement, and here's my Doctor Who toys, and that's my full-size VIA train. It took me four and a half years and two thousand and five hundred dollars to build this VIA train in my basement, and here it is in twenty-six seconds.
嗨!我是Jason Shorn,我愛 VIA火車。事實上,我太愛VIA火車,愛到自己在家裡蓋了一輛。這就是我的地下室,這些是我的《異世奇人》玩具,然後那是我的實體大小VIA火車。我花了四年半以及兩千五百美金在我的地下室打造了這輛VIA火車,就在以下二十六秒中。

The Guy with the train in his basement
地下室裡有輛火車的老兄

I still have a letter from 1987. I was twelve years old, and VIA rail was telling me, "We're sorry, Mr. Shron, but we can't sell you any seats from our trains."
我還有一封1987年的信。我當時十二歲,然後VIA鐵路告訴我:「很抱歉,Shron先生,不過我們不能賣給你任何我們火車上的座椅。」

The train is where I feel most at home. Its where I feel most at peace. It's this bubble of comfort, especially when it's hurdling along at eighty-five miles per hour with the snow and the rain pelting on the outside. It's just the perfect perfect place.
火車是我感到最自在的地方。它是讓我最感到最平靜的地方。它是個舒適的小天地,尤其是當它在以每小時八十五英里(約137公里)的速度衝刺時,雪和雨水猛擊著車外。它簡直就是最完美的地方。

At this end of the car on the real train is the bathroom. I replaced the bathroom with my record collection and turntable and all that, and the plan was to be able to chill out and just listen to music, but to be honest, I kinda just like listening to the train sounds.
在真正火車車箱的這個末端是洗手間。我用我的唱片蒐藏和唱片轉盤以及全部那些東西給取代了洗手間,計畫原是要能放輕鬆、就聽聽音樂,但老實說,我好像就是喜歡傾聽火車的聲音。

This is amazing. I've got a photo mirror of the next car, where the next car is supposed to go, so you think you're on a train, with another car.
這超神奇的。我有個下一節車廂的鏡像,那是下一節車廂該在的地方,所以你覺得身在一輛火車上,有著另一節車廂。

It's details like these that make this train so real for me. Ever since I was a kid I wanted to have a VIA train in my basement, but you can only find stuff like the garbage can if you actually have a real VIA train, and that's what happened. Some friends and I found out about VIA train car number 5647. It was going to be scraped. So we got ahold of it before it was scraped, and we took all these original parts out of it, like the garbage can, the coat hooks, the gena-motor light, the first aid box, the groovy 70's carpet, that basket for your time table, the conductor's valve, the folding gate, the radiator covers, and of course, all the comfy chairs.
就是像這些細節使這輛火車對我來說這麼逼真。從孩提時代我就一直想要在地下室擁有一輛VIA火車,但僅在如果你實際上擁有一輛真正的VIA火車時,你才能找到像垃圾桶之類的東西,而那就是發生的事情。我和一些朋友發現了關於VIA火車車箱5647號的事。它要被送去拆解。所以我們在它被拆解前得到了它,然後我們把所有這些原廠零件從中取出,像是垃圾桶,大衣掛勾,動力發電指示燈,急救箱,時髦的70年代地毯,那個放時刻表的籃子,車長閥(緊急剎車用),折疊柵欄,散熱器遮罩,還有當然,所有的舒適座椅。

That's it. The guy with the train in his basement. You too can have a train in your basement. You just need two things: you need to be completely insane, and you have to have an amazing wife.
就是這樣。地下室裡有輛火車的老兄。你也能在地下室擁有一輛火車。你只需要兩樣東西:你得要是完全瘋狂的,而且你得要有位超讚的老婆。

See ya.
再見囉。

    So we got ahold of it before it was scraped, and we took all these original parts out of it...
    所以我們在它被拆解前得到了它,然後我們把所有這些原廠零件從中取出...
