Well fuck. My train was cancelled and there was chaos at the Gare d'Austerlitz because of a breakdown in Gare de Montparnasse and they're moving trains to Austerlitz. To top it all of there was a bomb threat and we had to leave. So I just said fuck it and got me a hotel room. Had to get me a day ticket for tomorrow which cost me a bunch, too. I just hope those motherfuckers will compensate me, but I don't get my hopes up. What a bunch of nasty cunts. One can't even travel in Europe anymore without getting fucked over. Last time it was security strike at the airport in Barcelona where you had to spend literally hours and hours waiting to go through security, and now this shit when taking the train.

>>1131339
I had my ticket checked every time. Maybe because I was travelling first class. Maybe because it's the train to switzerland and they work a bit differently. I'll tell you tomorrow if they checked me on the train to Spain.

Talking about expenses compared to trolleybus. As with modern conventional BRT, what make buses good is their flexibility.
Not a big fan of BEV bus, especially supercapacitor buses. Still they are worth advocating for. Personally inclines towards series hybrid electric and PHEV.

Hi /n/,

The next time you travel shinkansen, try the Gran class if it has one. It's like one class above Green class. Huge comfy seats, and service of food and drinks included.

Pic related is my seat right now.

Denver is a based city. Connecting that station to the airport was a genius idea but all of the stops between it and Union Station are all sketchy as fuck streets surrounded by manufacturing facilities that hardly anyone uses.

>Reminder that this was the company that had built the SR-71

That technology won't scale to an SST.

>Plus one of the reasons the Concorde failed was because they couldn't fly enough people for it to be sustainable.

Worded another way: It's passenger capacity and economics were wrong. You want a successful SST? You fly a few very rich people and you have smaller flights that leave more frequently. Nobody is going to pay to be one of 200 passengers that have to sit in an airport all day for a slightly shorter flight. 787 and A380 are for the cattle class.
>>
>>1132292
>That technology won't scale to an SST.
Why not
>>
>>1132297
They had problems with engine unstarts which was a consequence of both intake and airframe design. The SR-71 couldn't go supersonic without diving through Mach 1. They didn't mind losing a few planes and crews to get their missions accomplished.

But Boeing doesn't really have a case since the CSeries doesn't directly compete with anything in the Boeing lineup.

That's like if I have a company that sells supercars and I sue Ford for "dumping" crossovers. I'm not losing anything by this.

Boeing is just mad af cause they can't into regional jets

nah, they were only leased for the interim service and went back to their respective owners after that. The Rheingold dome car (among others) is maintained by a railfan club in Cologne (https://www.rheingold-zug.com/index.html). The whole consist is in use for charter trains and excursions.

Russia's track record with nuclear reactors (naval or otherwise) is slightly less than spectacular.
http://spb.org.ru/bellona/ehome/russia/nfl/
This is a fairly old page and I'm pretty sure it isn't a complete chronicle of the merry adventures of the Northern Fleet, but it goes into good detail about just how much of a disaster the USSR's subs are.
>>
>>1131099
The KLT-40s has much less enegetic circuits than any other naval nuclear reactor.

The fuel is enriched to 15%, not 90%, and the circuits are 4 loops instead of 2.

Pretty much all of the submarine reactors of the Soviet Union were based off the same design from the 60s, that, along with the poor worksmanship and operation caused that.

The KLT-40 was designed on computers in the 90s and has operated without incident on their icebreakers.

Depends on the cars and the layout. I have a 12in radius turn on an inglenook shunting puzzle, because of this I use long couplers. In general I would always use long if option is available.

No, thats the least girly bike on the market. The reason they make those frames in the first place is so your giant dick can swing freely when you stand up to pedal, you could twine fake flowers all over the handlebars and leave it locked outside the American Girl flagship store, you'd still drench every pair of panties within a 500 foot radius.

Looks like we can all pack up and go home now.
