This means you didn't add capacity in the right place.
i.e. public transport.
If that's what you want to call the road network.
>Why do you want to spend MORE money on highways?
Highways provide more net utility to more people than public transit and are more of an economic multiplier too

Last time I found a patch of ice I couldn't even move my arms if I wanted to. I went from vertical to horizontal in approximately .25 seconds, still sliding forward.

I can across some odd snow conditions today on the creek. We had freezing rain about a week and a half ago, then some more snow after that. Earlier in the week I was out and this spot was snowy. Then wind blew most of the snow off the layer of freezing rain. The ice is perfectly clear and you can see the textured snow underneath it. It was actually nice to ride on though my studs made a hell of a noise punching holes in it.

Yeah, front wheel washouts happen really fast on ice. You are practically on the ground before you realize you are falling.

Since my heated insole pads were a much simpler build than my heated gloves I decided to take another crack at the gloves. Using techniques similar to the insole pads I got rid of the gluing, external heating material, siliconing and external wires. A few more steps are required but overall a faster build since there is no need to wait while stuff dries. I used double sided fabric tape, and a thin layer of fabric on the inside to keep everything hidden. The extra fabric makes the gloves a little smaller, so it would be best to start with a glove liner that is slightly loose.

Too bad, airlines have decided that adding females to an accelerated pilot training program is exactly how they can train up pilots and cut costs at the same time.
Do I thrust in female pilots?
Every now and then, yeah, but not while we're on duty.

Here's a surefire plan to fix America's failing rail network:
>Break up the major Class Is, redistribute their track to regional, state, and local authorities to better manage the branches of the system and provide employment and service opportunities to communities where the track passes through
>construct interurban and street railway systems in all major cities and integrate them into the regional rail network
>where the track is near large coal deposits, natural gas, and hydroelectric power, electrify the track for improved efficiency and economy
>subsidize passenger and freight operations with a national gas tax
>passenger trains have priority on all track, including mainlines
>all communities over 5,000 population have a guaranteed passenger rail service with trains running at least twice a day
>in order to support the economy, full crew laws will be applied nationwide (5 or 6 man crews for all freight trains, minimum of 3 crew per passenger train)
>railroads must serve any costumer/shipper on their line at cost if requested to do so (like rural free postal delivery)
>ban "labor-saving" technology that seeks to eliminate jobs and reduce safety
>put new construction operations in the hands of Japanese railway engineers to avoid cost overruns, construction delays, and inefficiency

I'd kill for those numbers with Amtrak

The modern us rail network's actually pretty good from an international standpoint (only when you factor freight in tho), but nothing stings more than realizing the us was obsessed with rail until the 50s and had some of the best lines (with the best service) in the world.

Automatic block signals? Invented and used by tje Eastern Railroad. Overhead catenary? The Pennsylvania Railroad didn't invent it, but they sure as hell pioneered the use of it. Automatic Train Control? Pennsy again.

Then we saw the car and threw that all away without a second thought.

>eminent domain
Can't there be court battles over this?
Unless the state is actually doing this, I'm guessing that there could be a lot of people not wanting to deal with that stuff.
Another option, and it would require a huge amount of support from the Federal Government, would be turning the required land into Federal Land.
And you think even more of that would be a better option. Epic

>eminent domain
Large eminent domain projects are usually controversial, can be drawn out in protracted in legal battles, and often are difficult to secure political will for. Don't be so brash

>turning the required land into Federal Land
I view this as totally unforeseeable

Hello /n/, /out/ here.
Last time I was out at Yosemite, I noticed a large amount of bicycle riders, and that there is a lot of bike paths all over, so it seems like a great way to get around and have some fun.
Problem is that I drive a Toyota Mr2, and I do not wish to mount a stupid rack system to haul a bicycle 200 miles and look like a stupid cock doing it.

So how shit are folding bicycles? If I can get one small enough, I can just place it behind the passenger seat.

an mr2 with a proper rack would look sexy. bad taste, bad thread. you could even /diy/ a horizontal mount over the engine bay, that would look awesome. you suck.
>horizontal mount over the engine bay
>that would look awesome
Not OP, but it gets verry hot there.
In the MRS the entire engine, gearbox and exaust system sit under there and create a lot of heat, I doubt that it would be good for the bike if you would place it there.
Plus there isn't enough space to mount a bike horizontaly there, MRS is a little smaller than the NA MX-5.

Buy a bike you can fit in the trunk, if you remove the wheels.

I think its just easier to "take care" of a bunch of cats since they don't need much taking care of. With dogs you'd have to at the very least let them shit in the backyard, which would quickly lead to complaints from the city from the smell.
I was playing fetch with my dog in the back yard with a soccer ball, I would kick it against the back of the house and they would push it back to me. My mom told me to be careful because I could accidently end up kicking the dog, and literally the next kick she jumped in front of me and got blasted in the face. I'm sorry Buffy.

I was referring to the original ending to "the Flying kipper" but yeah that also kinda happened
It does strike me as odd that despite that they never insisted they change the end of "The Sad Story of Henry", where the Fat Director says he will be left there "for always and always and always". Even the TV series used that line. Makes Topham look a little weak for going back on his word in the very next story
Yes. It didn't help that at the end of the first book, Henry is painted blue, which coupled with the artist's inaccuracies made him indistinguishable from Gordon at times. Pic related is the worst offender; Awdry had to respond to a fan letter asking about the inaccuracy explaining Henry had been temporarily fitted with a set of Gordon's square buffers.
I remember as a kid not being sure if the engine here was meant to be Edward or Gordon - even the face doesn't really resemble Henry, who was previously (and since) drawn with a straighter nose.

I use this type of train at least twice a week. Very comfy ride. By far the best service on the route.

6/10. Man, I feel like 90% of Anglo trains look the same.
5/10. Those don't look any different to me. It must be the yellow front.
8/10. Subway cars high up on bridges are peak aesthetic.

Class 80 was not a very nice train to use. Slam door system was kinda unpleasant to use, and while the weird bench like seats were softer than that on the Class 450s, I don't think I'll ever like the Class 80s.
Also, Antrim station looks way nicer today than it did in whatever year that was.

Gotta say though that new Enterprise is really comfy though.

Fortunately no one die nor severely injured.
The accident happened on yesterday's morning which was quite cold and thus the rapid temperature drop have been cited as a possible reason for the problem to occurs to the track and cause the derailment.
When the accident occurs, the train was only 5 minutes away from its terminal, still running on a single track section and the speed was just a bit above 100 km/h
This section of track is relatively new, opened last December that it haven't reach its first anniversary yet.
The Korail president seems to think the use of Jacobs bogie have help prevented the train from overturning in this accident and thus achieved zero death nor sever injury

It's free and open source now, not to mention tons of mods and its very easy to set up your own autisms.
I like pak128 a lot but there's still a big community for pak64.
btw nips are fucking mad obsessed with this game that can be scary sometimes
I tried once Simutrans, it was 2014 or 2015 maybe. It seemed to me that it lacked visual consistency, and I never really got around to playing it. How is it in current year? How are mods?

€2billion vs $85billion?
Meaning NYC gets twice as much income therefore it's even more feasible in NYC. Of course it would upset NIMBYs and Wall Street 1percenters because imagine how unacceptable it is that the poor ride for free with our taxes! I might not be able to buy a fourth yacht this month!
*twice as much per head
Luxembourg is much richer than NYC per capita and the city is much smaller too.
>Much richer
But the government income per person was only half of what NYC have
>Much smaller city size

So VIA just announced their new trains they will be purchasing for the Corridor Route. Does make me wonder what the fuck Metrolinx is doing, considering the LW and LE lines are supposed to be electrified by 2025 and they haven't even decided upon a train to use.
