So in two months after i save up 10k im going to become ahomeless tranny clown.
I already know how to juggle 5 balls and im on hrt.
I'm thinking about just being on adderal and juggling for twelve hours downtown somewhere somehow.

Also I need to learn how to ride a unicycle somehow...
What's the best city for this?

My trips going to be Austin, than Tempe Arizona to California.
Anyone have train riding tips?
Or unicycle riding tips?

In terms of shape that looks much like any other cruise ship. Clownish proportions, wall of balconies that would make a commieblock jealous, those walls of oversized porthole windows are ugly, too. The only thing that subjectively redeems it to some degree is the paintjob.

>>1348696
There are also hybrid sail ships designed for more fuel efficient cruise under power. Also even fully fledged sail cruise ships have helper motors to help them along, after all they've got itinerary dates to keep.
>>
>>1348305
It might look alright (by modern cruise ship standards) but there's not going to be any actual elegance found inside, particularly not when you're sharing it with the kinds of people who'd go on a Disney cruise.

Post trams and trolleybuses in shithole cities.

I visited Sarajevo about ten years ago and loved the antique public transport. All the old East German buses, which still had the German ads on them, and also the tram.

I don’t have any pics I took but pic related is representative of the buses in service then. Google suggests that they’ve modernised, which makes me sad.
>>
>>1346949
>>1348611

And pic is what the team looked like. It cost 1 KM to ride, which I did pay which really made me stand out as a foreigner, but you could smoke inside which was dope.
>>
>>1348611
Sad thing is, the tram and trolleybus fleet is basically the same as those 10 years ago. Only tracks and wires got more rusty and wavy over time and Turkey sent more money on new diesel buses.
>>
>>1348611
>All the old East German buses, which still had the German ads on them, and also the tram.
Wow. Whatever this -core is called, this is peak it.
Reminds me of Pyongyang metro, which uses old rolling stock from Berlin. Some cars still have scratched-in German graffiti.
>>1348613
>you could smoke inside which was dope.
So did you smoke dope on the tram?
>>
>>1348775
I was able to find weed there but would not have risked smoking it publicly. Apparently it’s taken quite seriously. The guy I bought it from had smuggled in a shampoo bottle and there was a distinct aroma from that.

Im buying a unicycle to travel the country with.

Beautiful machines, and fruit of a noble purpose. Very much of another era, though; like they're the absolute last shreds of the idea that air travel is somehow glamorous, instead of a flying city bus packed full of cattle belching garbage into the air (engines and cattle alike).

I'm sure there's an alternate plane of reality where 'what if jet engines, but FASTER' caught on, instead of cheap Ryanair flights.

How about a thread for the once great American Locomotive Company? Once the leader in steam locomotive technology, they, just like Baldwin and Lima, failed to make the most of their time on this earth in the diesel-electric locomotive department. Let's get some photos of this once great builder, who happened to have a subsidiary in Montreal at one time as well. I'll start out with one of their more successful product lines: switchers.

Alco RSD8

Anyone ever had one actually stick its snout into your wheel like a retard and slice the front half of its face off in your spokes?

Is it as satisfying and worth the repair costs as I imagine it being?

No, these specific Baldwins (DRS4-4-1000's) spent their lives mostly on Vancouver Island with some in Vancouver, no where else. 13 units of that model were the only ones purchased in Canada.

Damn, that's a real shame. Reminds me of a shortline near me that has two Alcos just rusting away in storage. Has the owner said anything about why he's storing them?

I've never found out why, and most of the people that know about them have never got a clear answer about it, either. If I remember right, they are stored on the Escanaba and Lake Superior RR on the upper peninsula in a (partial)roundhouse on the line.

What type of ALCo's are near you?

I'm so fucking angry at JUMP. I wanted to use their scooter to joy ride but the one I picked had no battery to even move itself so I put it back exactly where I got it less than two minutes after I unlocked it and was charged an out of service area fee of $25. Total fucking bullshit. The charge is still pending but I'm disputing it with JUMP who hasn't replied yet and if they don't reply and I will get scammed out of my $25, I'm going to dispute the charge with my bank. What a fucking waste of my time

cars are legal, why shouldn't these be?

Kids with rich parents here, I want to get into cycling and my budget is essentially unlimited. Should I buy a $10,000+ road bike right off the bat or is there some merit for getting more of an inexpensive entry or middle level bike and “growing into” a high end bike later on?
