Happy 14th Birthday, 4chan!



So /n/, what's your plan to improve public transit in your area, and why is it numerous, complex, unending highway improvement projects?

i've been fantasizing about grand infrastructure projects for my province, like importing japanese bullet trains
>>
I'm thinking about a 80 year old infrastructure project for europe involving a 3000 mm gauge high speed rail network that conects the most important cities with Berlin as some kind of hub.

Of course the trains would not be steam powered as in the original plan, and not drive only 200 km/h...

isn't that way too wide to be feasible? the weight on the middle of the cars would be massive

Just rebuild the old nation spanning railways, do proper maintenance on the existing ones so trains can ride at non crawling speed, actually put more money on freight companies so trains give a big fuck you to the many thousands of trucks choking everything and make passenger trains a reality, putting a price closer to buses than to planes

>Give more support to companies that profitted several billion dollars last quarter.
You're retarded.

Isn't the orange line where some tourist train is running old class 628s?

North America.

>>1117214
north america has a proper railway grid already, and passenger trains too
I'm in brazil, where trains were cucked to death since their golden age on the 19th century

They're building this "Elgin-O'Hare Western Access" tollway right outside Chicago. The orange part was built 20 something years ago and was called the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway, but it reached neither Elgin nor O'Hare. It goes mostly unused and tore a community in half. I like to use it as a speed strip on Friday nights.

The green part was impressively built in a little over a year and will open next month. This stretch alone cost billions.

The blue part is the whole purpose of the project and will take until at least 2025 to complete. That part, along with a possible western terminal, gives travelers easy access to O'Hare airport. That is, if Chicago actually builds the terminal and if Canadian Pacific cooperates (they aren't, and they own a stretch of rail on the west side of the airport that may need to be moved).

I kind of rambled, but I thought you guys might like to hear about a baffling highway expansion.

Canadians are terrible people and the only way you ever realize this is by dealing with their railroads.
>>
>>1117238
That's pretty interesting. If this was anywhere but Illinois or New Jersey I'd be surprised they didn't just tear down what little was built.
>>
>>1117202
Well, the cars would have been significantly larger than todays ones.
Basicly a house on rails.

The intention was to build a comfortable, fast (250 km/h on steam) rail transportation system to conect the newly conquered east with the rest of the german Reich.
Basicly the wet dream of every /n/ and /pol/ crossposter...

looks like a nice dickwaving alright, given that you could afford it

My plan: rebuild the entire interstate system. It'll take a generation at least. Lifelong employment in the construction sector. Emphasis on separating commercial traffic from other vehicles.

This, can't believe anyone thinks private freight rail carriers should be given more money. Clueless.
