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.

Why are they the greatest frames ever made?

Something about them is so perfect. I don't think there is anywhere forward from the 100/135 utli-cross zenith mankind reached with the year 2000 release of the cross-check

it is the perfect bike for every imaginable purpose and amazingly everything since then has been a marketing gimmick dumped on top of the cross-check's already balanced and fully realized vision

gravel... cross check
touring... cross check
adventure... cross check
commuter.... cross check
s24O.... scross check
grocery getter.... cross check
road racer.... cross check
fixed gear.... cross check
single speed... cross check

The cross check looks like a good frame for a lot of things, but I've read that the rear triangle is *extremely* compliant and will flex like wet spaghetti when you put down real power. I feel like that would drive me mad if I tried to do any real efforts on it, but otherwise it looks like a very reasonable frameset to build up.

For some autistic reason I decided to re-design Denver RTD's bus System. Here it is so far (pic related). I'm not done yet, though I would still like some input. I figured this would be an okay place.

For feedback, don't hold back. If you want more images I'll share, just won't share the original drive file because I made it with my personal email.

Just cause I dont use it doesnt mean Im not all for it, just so we make the distinction. 1 less car is always welcome. Also I would be happy to use it if it was actually useful to me... but they never go where I need it to in a straightish path without 5 transfers, taking 3 times as long, and with the ability to hold a few hundred lbs of tools for work would be awesome. If I had an office job and had a simple route and could do some work on a laptop while I ride in an instant I would be on a bus... til then though.

What do you consider the best uses of carbon?

I don't use it but I have in the past, considering order-of-safety:

* Light mounts
* Stem spacers
* Seatpost
* Crank arms
* Disc rims (or maybe, rear only?)
* Frame, when paired with a steel fork(?)

No. Rubber tired metro has only one (1) benefit: it can attack steep inclines. No. Actually two (2). Brake distance is smaller.
Besides that, it is a giant disadvantage

They're only superior as far as traction goes (grades, acceleration, braking). But other than the grades you don't really need more acceleration and braking, it only makes the ride uncomfortable.
>>
>>1277310
Well, braking is nice to have, but in normal operation it is not needed, unless line has steep inclines.

Since you are going for a bit of a retro look with the cages and bottle and you have an all-black bike I'd suggest getting a crazy colored retro bar tape.

My suggestion is to channel Mario Cipolini and rock some "Cinelli Zebra" bar tape.

Who else loves it when there is so much snow cagers can barely drive and streets are quiet. That's the time to take the fat bike out for comfy rides
