Is it the blimp trains time to shine?
Could this be used to get Ukraine grain to the rest of europe?

They have different rail gauge between rooskie and EU tracks but blimp can be handed off with out even slowing down

THIS CAN WORK???!!!!!!!

This can be the most retarded or greatest thing depending on what gas the blimp is filled with to stay afloat.

A /n/ meme from ages ago. Anon originally pitched the idea as a sightseeing ride for tourists.
>>
>>1932566
That would be a pretty niche use compared to cargo blimp trains

Come on, ride the train, hey, ride it
Come on, ride the train, hey, ride it
Come on, ride the train, hey, ride it
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can
Way deep down south, where we play this game
It's them Quad City DJs and you, we call it the train
So if you wanna ride your thing
Just come on down the train
We gonna rock, ooh, Lord, just jump aboard, baby
So get your next of kin, your sister and your friend
Pack it up now
Choo, choo, ride on this, choo, choo
And, boo, you need to stop faking, and come on with me
I wanna take you home with me, to be alone with me
And I can see you wanna hide it, come on, just divide it
And please don't knock it, until you ride it
So to all of you girls, you know, I'm calling your name
Michelle, Tamika and Tanya wanna ride this train, ride out now
>>

It has to be diesel? That is a bit silly too
>>
>>1933967
who is saying diesel?
>>
To counter the wind you need to make the blimp steerable, which defeats the purpose of the road. There are certain problems with running an aircraft via a extension cable. How is it dealing powerlines and bridges for a starter.
>>
>>1934468
did you even watch the video?
>>
>>1934468
the road is not for steering but to provide cheap propulsions
>>
>>1932070
Idk, a massive balloon probably causes a lot more air resistance than a wagon behind a locomotive(the additional rolling resistance is probably pretty insignificant).
So it would likely be less fuel efficient.
>>
>>1935383
Its very low speed so the drag is minimal , also the train is carrying cargo as well

Henrik fucked Ana in the barn while I was trying to sleep outside in the tent. I left the next day because I didn't want to be subjected to sex noises at night.

What if the blimp was powered by hydrogen instead of helium?

So the blimp doesn't get tangled in wires

You could use third rail DC but they tend to not be able to pull much weight

Maybe would should make a prototype out of a kids train like they have at the zoo.
We could pool our money like with a go fun me page.
The blimp train could start as an amusement park ride for kids to get around the area efficiently and once we have the proof of concept it could become a major source of public transit
>>
Guys I really wish you would join me in the appreciation of the blimp train.
It could bring so much joy to our troubled world

Even just daydreaming about the bright future a blimp train would occupy brings me elation I cant fully describe in words.

Please /n/ , please into the blimp train with me

Why would a blimp be pulling a train?

to help the train hop over other trains

does that work? I feel like your just dropping the kinetic energy. you lost momentum but your speed is the same as if you didn't have it since weight doesn't make you fall faster. maybe it would work if you had like a spring that pushes the weight down

Why not just have aerodyne blimps and aerostat balloons for surveillance, cargo and tours rather than transport? We're doing this already.

is that a childs toy?

>>1932070
it would be useful in siberia, africa and south america aka areas with little economic development. but is a good idea in principle. a train-less blimp would be useful enough imo but indeed in areas where it is possible to be pulled by a train it would achieve even better efficiency
