I share this sentiment, I definitely stumbled upon the board and it's the only one I really frequent nowadays.

That said, I would wear the shit out of the jerseys at a race if I had money when they were collab'd on, anyone who would recognize 4chan from that would know that /n/ is not /b/ or /pol/.

You could simply deflect by saying it's from a not-mongolian-throat-warbling website's bike forum.

How do you run your trains? Do you just run them in a circle, or do you have intricate operational schedules? Do the trains on these schedules have a task of some sort or are they miming the behavior of a specific stretch of line?

Back by popular demand, ITT we discuss the greatest electrified railroad operation in world history. The proven corporate conspiracy to dismantle and abandon this operation, largely perpetrated from within the company itself by its own top-level officials, is one of the greatest crimes against humanity ever conceived and makes the Great American Streetcar Scandal look like amateurish in comparison.

Gone before its time, but not forgotten, the Milwaukee Road's Pacific Coast Extension lives on in the minds of all who encounter it. This thread is dedicated to the men and women who built and maintained this system, and the photographers who filmed and preserved this unique operation for posterity.

Did Rock burn oil or coal on its steam locomotives? I would think oil would be more accessible and convenient on most of its lines.
>>
>>1346421
Depended on the division. Essentially, everything from South of Kansas City were oil burners and everything North were coal burners. They got a lot of the steam coal from a mine I believe in Carbondale, Illinois. I want to say a connection was made with EJ&E or the IC to get there. Of course the oil came from OK and TX.

This would still have a lot of the same problems as regular cars; they'd still need parking, would probably have a lot of noise pollution; and be inefficient.

They would not be the futuristic paradise people have always expected.

>>1348101
Since congestion should not be an issue in air, you could have them self-fly to some parking lot way outside the city, and fly back to pick you up in a couple minutes when you need it. Winged ones would probably be pretty efficient even with all the surplus weight, but if it doesn't have VTOL capabilities, landing in cities wouldn't be very feasible.

I'm getting a new frame for my commuter and it's going to be a chink one. Since getting it painted is only 70 dollaridoos extra and anything is better than matte black I'll be getting a custom paint job.

Will have a cloverleaf as a head badge, that's pretty much the only thing I've got figured out.

Since this will be my commuter bike can't do anything racist or otherwise super offensive. Memes and shit are welcome.

Do your worst anons. Pic related is the frame in question.

Because they are under the impression that their neighborhood will be ruined by density, that their property values might be hurt, that brown people might exist in their vicinity, that they might lose their home to some crappy developer.

>Not very convincing

People who want a quadcopter simulator can do it in KSP. It's not great, but it's sufficient for people who are really into it. Only problem is a lack of diverse urban environments to play in, but even then this is fixable with more mods.

Is it a big thing? No it is not. But it's the sort of feature that needs to be in an all-encompassing flight sim in 2020 in the same way FS95 let people choose between different planes in the first place. It's the sort of thing that would be listed as a bullet point feature on the back of the box, a thing that helps sell the larger package. Because ultimately MS has to prove that this is a direct upgrade from FSX in every way plausible, quadcopters and RC planes (and drones in general) is a small way of doing that.

Hell they have ultralights in FSX already. There is no reason not to go a few pounds lighter and do unmanned craft.
