Southern Rail - Carrboro, North Carolina

photo of toilet at the Southern Rail in Carrboro North Carolina

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from Southern Rail, a restaurant in Carrboro, North Carolina.

The Southern Rail is located between active freight train tracks in downtown Carrboro. It features a massive collection of train themed antiques, historic signage, train themed memorabilia, and artwork. Thats all very good and well as long as you're interested in trains. If you're interested in toilets, though, you might not even notice the trains rushing past* you as you stare at this piece of toilet art while taking a leak or making a poo.

This photo was submitted by Captain Awesome and it is the first toilet with a (s)peed limit that the Toilets of the World team has seen to date. Big thumbs up to the Southern Rail for bringing traffic control into the bathroom.

* Trains probably don't really rush past here. Saying they do, helps us make our point which is that this is one great toilet.

Unknown - Tibet, China

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from an unknown location in Tibet.

This interesting looking toilet is the second Tibetan toilet sent in to us by Werner Arno Van Rooyen who writes:

"Another Tibetan beauty. When you walk in to these, oddly enough the first one or two are always taken. So the whole time you are walking you keep muttering to yourself, "I'm not watching, I'm not watching, I'm not watching", amidst all the grumping and plopping and OH MY GOD, I ACCIDENTALLY TURNED MY HEAD! and you cry yourself to sleep for a week."

The silver lining, if you had to find one, would probably be the tiles. They must have looked really pretty when they were first cemented down. They must have had no idea what awaited them. 

Thanks Werner.
