Boeing Ecoliner

maxresdefault
Years ago there was a fan-made concept floating around on the internet about the Boeing Ecoliner. It was about a twin-jet fully double-decker airliner for Boeing to compete against the A380 and fill in existing gaps within the market. It would have required massive fuck-off engines larger than the GE90, and there was an idea about using a beefed up APU to provide thrust for TO/GA. Realistically, would such an aircraft be economically or physically viable? Would there have been enough fuel savings to justify the use of full double-deckers?


Now that the A380 has been BTFO, should this have been what the industry built towards?

Steam Railroad Rankings

Steam Railroad Rankings
I made a thing. This list includes all of the currently known steam train operations 15-inch/381-mm gauge or larger in the Anglosphere (US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand) and grades them to see which are the best. It has 420 lines and 851 locomotives.

How it works:
Each railroad is graded on bell curves for the age of its right-of-way (older = better), the main line's length (longer = better), the track gauge (wider = better), how many working steam locomotives it has (more = better), and the age of its oldest steam locomotive (older = better). Lines with higher scores have a large scope from a technical and operations standpoint, and they tend to fully immerse you in another time and place better than those with lower scores. That doesn't necessarily means that those with lower scores are bad railroads; they're just small potatoes.

Discuss.

There is a proposal to move the Campbell Court Bus Station to the parking lot directly in front of the Museum. We are asking everyone to come out and support the Museum by opposing this move.” Your support would be greatly appreciated. The meeting will begin at 7PM at the City Council Chamber on the fourth floor of the Noel C. Taylor Municipal Building, located at 215 Church Avenue SW, Roanoke.”

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.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merci_Train

>The Merci Train, also known as the French Gratitude Train or the Forty and Eight, was the 1949 Europe-US response to the Friendship Train. Composed of 49 cars and filled with "gifts of gratitude", the Merci Train arrived in New York City on February 3, 1949, and was divided amongst the 48 states with the remaining car to be shared by the District of Columbia and Hawaii.

>The idea to send a "thank you" gift to the United States for the $40 million in food and other supplies sent to France and Italy in 1947 came from a French railroad worker, and World War II veteran, named Andre Picard. Donations from the Merci Train came from over six million citizens of France and Italy in the form of dolls, statues, clothes, ornamental objects, furniture, and even a Legion of Honour medal purported to have belonged to Napoleon.

France is alright in my book.

Commies close factories
A major issue in the United States is that many cities, their suburbs, and surrounding broader region have little to no public transportation infrastructure.

Everyone has to drive everywhere for everything.

This consumes vast sums of oil, generating vast sums of CO2, also necessitates a constant demand for more roads+urban sprawl to keep pace with roads becoming congested.

Efforts to ameliorate this are very haphazard, in contrast to the roads and other infrastructure public transit planning seems to be left down to the lowest level of planning at the city council/county level.

So one area maybe implements a bit of a BRT, another area maybe has a little lightrail, and a third area has some regional locomotive.

With no coordination or cooperation.

And it may also have to be put to a vote allowing those with vested financial interests in maintaining Oil dependency to fund anti-public transit campaigns via sophisticated libertarian think tanks and fronts.

What these cities, their suburbs, and surrounding regions need is a comprehensive public transportation system compromising:
1) Regional & inter-urban rail connecting rural areas and regional towns/cities to one another and major cities
2) Commuter rail to and through a cities suburbia
3) Where appropriate Metro rail inside a city and urban area
4) Streetcars/lightrail, they're the same thing just new technology, on the road in and around the city center and urban area - in medium to low density cities Streetcars and Commuters working together in tandem are an effective alternative to a Metro, you hop off the commuter train and hop on the Streetcar outside and keep going.
They can also be very useful in regional cities, it might have a network of just 3 to 5 or more routes but as seen in Germany with their Tram-Train systems it can be connected to the mainline railways and provide additional services to other towns in the region in between the scheduled Regional and inter-urban trains

Fuck Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. You can't compete with the efficiency of air travel. What she wants to kill an entire industry and lay off a shit ton of pilots, air traffic controlers and other airline workers? News flash you dumb ass, electric trains get their energy from a coal burning plant down the street. And how do you expect to get to fucking europe on this green deal idiot? People don't want to sit in a train for 12 hours when they can fly there in 3. The aviation industry is constantly working to be more efficient and cleaner for the environment. It would take a lot less people to coordinate a national train system, meaning you're literally killing jobs and not replacing them. So how is this a good plan for the future? I think the environment is very important but so are jobs and efficient, logical travel means.

Considering the arbitration cases I read guys always get their job back with pay but the only thing stopping me is if I do it I think they will they just fire me for running the switch instead.

Anyways fuck CN for trying to control my life

transit-mobility2
Can we have a thread about medical transportation? Never seen it discussed here, but there's a lot to be said about it that intersects with urban planning, transport planning, and social policies more generally, and it involves many different kinds of modes of travel from helicopters to buses to wheelchairs that cost more than cars.

I work for a company in the US that provides both emergency ambulance service, plus routine van transport for people in wheelchairs (basically a specialized taxi service), ask me anything.

The one thing that really irks me about the work I do is that we do some really dumb things in part because the cost of driving is simply too low - like taking patients to doctor's offices in a city 60 miles away when there are at least 50 offices locally that could do the same thing, or sending an ambulance crew to help the staff at a nursing home start a tricky IV.

Hello

DnD fag here. Was coming up with a campaign that takes place in the Not!Caribbeon. I was wondering how exactly was shipping profitable. This may seem like a dumb question but does anyone know if it was a percentage of the value of goods?

The expenses seem vast it just seems strange to me how could it turn into profit unless basic goods were a huge amount.

Also how would there be any type of profit if you were toship livestock? Animals couldn't have been THAT expensive. Any random details would also be nice that wouldn't be common knowledge.

Talgo Rolling Stock

The Great American Rail Trail

grtmap
Analyses implemented in the past few years of open rail-trails and out-of-service rail corridors show the potential to build a rail-trail that spans from Washington to Washington. Hundreds of conversations with state agencies and local trail managers confirm that this is a realistic pursuit.

...Now, the route is more than 50 percent complete

Never seen a thread like this here. Post and discuss specific accidents, incidents, or disasters involving roads/highways, aviation, railroads, etc.

This one happened not too far from me back in 1995 in Fox River Grove, IL about 42 miles northwest of Chicago. A commuter train traveling at about 70 mph smashed into a school bus full of high schoolers. Resulted in 7 deaths, 21 injuries. The bus driver, who was a substitute who had never driven the route, misjudged the amount of space on the opposite side of the track and left the back end of the bus hanging over the rails while at a red light.

KES The future of bicycling

max-bike
Kenetic Energy Storage (KES) Is how you store motion into a flywheel or electrical charge system (See below), for later usage.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GchjFXif_hY

Obviously it's a bit more difficult to use a flywheel on a bicycle, but a trike on the other hand is very doable.

For those who want to understand KES more in depth.

Do people even think about consequences of this?
Unlike motorcycles, bicyclists and scooter riders don't need a license, so people aren't supposed to know how to drive this thing, thus a riders should LEGALLY have an option to use sidewalk, if his/her driving skill is insufficient.
This is hazard for everyone.

Sure, in this webm fat cunt definitely has no clue how to use the fucking scooter, but legally they are considered bicycles, and (((politicians))) are pushing them road (and they weren't designed for this, considering 20 km/h max speed).
