/SQTDDTOT/ - Stupid questions that don't deserve their own thread.

My commute is 25-ish km one way (15 miles for ya yankees) with 200m (650 ft) difference in height. I'm sick of using bus or metro.
I can't get a car, since I cant get a license yet (i need to verify school certificate first, and it is not fast at all).
What meme transport should I use? Biking 200m height gradient every day is not cool at all. E-bike? Electric scooter?

Any of you ever make fictional transit maps? I'm currently working on a map of the Northeast US in an alternate reality where passenger rail was supported in the same way it was in the UK in our timeline, with most of the lines traced over current and former rights of way. Clearly (since there are orphaned stations all over the Virginias, and a multitude of missing stations in New York and Pennsylvania) it's a long way from being done.

Newest US Heritage Railroad Opens April 22

LeviathanCupper
http://trn.trains.com/news/news-wire/2019/04/19-lincoln-funeral-train-recreation-will-ride-monday-and-tuesday

The standard gauge Harrisburg, Lincoln & Lancaster Railroad is located in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, on the Stone Gables Estate, a venue for private events that will incorporate rides on the train in its offerings.

Details:
-Has newly-built (2009) 4-4-0 steam locomotive based on an 1860s design
-One of the two train cars is a replica of Abraham Lincoln's funeral train car used to transport him from DC to his grave in Springfield, Illinois
-The 0.62 miles of track is newly-built, but it lies on a former 1832-built right-of-way along the original funeral train route
-Opening ceremony on Monday will have Civil War soldier re-enactors and a cannon firing demo
-In the future, the route will be expanded to 3 miles and an engine shed, more train cars, a turntable, and a covered bridge will be added

Burger electrics thread

19890710_02
America is much more known for widespread use of diesel locomotives than Europe, but they had a handful of interesting designs of juicers. For a Eurofag like me these look very, very weird. Let's take the Little Joe for example - has 6 traction motors mounted on powered axles which are located in a rigid frame, with pilot trucks on both ends. For comparison - a typical European freight locomotive of that time had two 3-axle bogies with traction motors on them, placed underneath the locomotive's body.

On top of that, US passenger electrics had steam generators for heating well up to mid-seventies while HEP facilities were industry standard in European locomotives (even some freight ones) right after WW2.

Would some US train nerd explain this to me, please?

One of the nicest things about riding a recumbent is the feeling of kinship when you randomly come across another 'bent or velomobile. The same brotherhood experience is felt between motorcyclists who always wave when passing each other.

This communal feeling is not there between regular cyclists and/or roadcyclists, just as it isn't there between car drivers. This is largely due to their popularity which has reduced their status to one mostly for simple transportation.

The lack of kinship between regular cyclists is also because both parties are likely experiencing some form of discomfort, whether it is saddle, wrist, back or neck pain. This discomfort creates a classic but very unfriendly and mean looking ''cycling face''.

This is opposed to the classic ''recumbent grin'' that bent riders experience, as they're not in any discomfort at all. It's impossible not to grin like a retard when two bent cyclists pass each other. This is often followed by a short stop, a good conversation and possibly the making of a friend for life.

Hard Hitting articles the 737 Max

Boeing-737-max-10
Good morrow to all my fellow forum posters.

Look at this hard-hitting article by NY Magazine, one of the premier media journals is asking if this plane is worth saving.(They say no)

http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/03/is-the-boeing-737-max-worth-saving.html

>There’s only so far you can keep updating a venerable design, though. Boeing knows this. In the mid-aughts, it launched a project to consider a clean-sheet replacement for the 737 that would be ready to fly sometime between 2012 and 2015. In the end, though, it scrapped that approach. When Airbus rolled out an update to its own version of the narrow-body aircraft, the A320neo, in 2010, Boeing was forced to respond. Its answer was the Rube Goldberg contraption it has today.

Roadie marketing

major-on-the-boards
Can we talk about marketing for a minute? I don't read Ebony or Jet but I'm willing to bet Specialized and Trek advertise in those magazines because literally every single middle aged black roadie seems to be riding those two brands and those two brands exclusively. Or whatever magazine the blacks read. To be honest I'm not exactly sure.

Meanwhile white women seem to be all over Pinarello for some reason, so that minor social media drama doesn't seem to have hurt them in any way.

What's going on here? Is this like the Subaru and lesbians thing, where they know exactly how to dog whistle to those groups so that nobody else notices the message?

Pic unrelated, all I can find on google image search is black pro team cyclists and those guys will ride whatever they're paid to ride.

Milwaukee Road Electrification Thread

Back by popular demand, ITT we discuss the greatest electrified railroad operation in world history. The proven corporate conspiracy to dismantle and abandon this operation, largely perpetrated from within the company itself by its own top-level officials, is one of the greatest crimes against humanity ever conceived and makes the Great American Streetcar Scandal look like amateurish in comparison.

Gone before its time, but not forgotten, the Milwaukee Road's Pacific Coast Extension lives on in the minds of all who encounter it. This thread is dedicated to the men and women who built and maintained this system, and the photographers who filmed and preserved this unique operation for posterity.

What Happened to This Jet?

The jet was apparently taking of from Schonefeld after some type of maintenance. A "technical malfunction" occurred shortly after takeoff, and the Luftwaffe crew were returning. From the looks of the photos, the jet rolled from about 35° left to about 35° right in only a few seconds. The balls on this guy!

Bombardier Global 5000 of the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) departed Berlin Schönefeld Airport (SXF) but was forced to return after a technical issue. After landing, however, the aircraft ended up slightly next to the runway, blocking the runway. Departures have been halted. At the moment of writing, eight aircraft diverted to nearby Tegel Airport, seriously disrupting the airlines’ flight schedules.

>The German Air Force announced that no passengers were on board the aircraft: “The crew is being medically examined. The aircraft headed back to Berlin Schönefeld after a technical malfunction just after take-off. We are investigating the cause of the incident,” the German Air Force tweeted.

Motorbikes are the worst form of transportation. They can't carry anything, they're completely exposed, and can often do over 100mph. At least bikes give you time to accept you're fucked. If you crash a motorbike faster than 20-30mph, you will die.

Infrastructure General

DT_p10_1-1280x720
alright this might be a complete mistake but gonna try this anyway.

Discuss anything related to infrastructure (roads, bridges, railways, waterways, trails, etc)
Try to stay on on topic, decent rule of thumb is discussion about specific vehicles of transportation are better suited to other generals (or boards) but talking about any building/structure that is relevant in transportation is fair game

Theoretically, how much would it cost to operate a narrow gauge railroad?

ill_advised_purchases
If you haven't guessed, I have a lot of fuck-around money. I've been thinking about possibly buying a locomotive and some other rolling stock and setting up a miniature railroad on my property. If I do a circle of the perimeter I would have about 10 miles of rail to lay. How much would initial purchases cost for track and everything else, and how much is maintenance going to cost me? Is fixing a small steam locomotive something a mechanic could figure out with enough time to tinker, or will I need to find somebody with experience on locomotives. Also, what's the smallest gauge should I look into? I want something big enough that I can actually sit inside of.

Why aren't emergency parachutes more common on ultralight aircraft? These are literally smaller and less obtrusive than a lifejacker and passengers only need basic safety instructions regarding what to do when freefalling. It's really simple. I plan on becoming a balloonist but I always want to carry a chute.

>inb4 too expensive
it's paracord and a piece of cloth. Don't make things look more complex than what it is. Even a ww1 parachute would be better than nothing. And back then carrying chutes was standard for all flight operations.

"Commuters on Britain's rush-hour roads and railways suffer greater anxiety than fighter pilots or riot police facing angry mobs of protesters"

https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2004/nov/30/research.transport

Commuting just isn't comfy. Car's arent comfy if you have to drive. Trains and busses aren't comfy because you share a closed space with hunderds of people you don't know.
Bike isn't comfy because no wheather protection.

Commuting just sucks. Don't try to sell that your transport method is fun. It isn't.
