As a pedestrian you must stop for me no matter when I cross. No it is not jaywalking because cities are not for automobiles. You cagers are destroying our environment and have fatal crashes on a daily basis. It is time for us to lobby against automobiles so that our chicks do not have to worry about drive-by cat calls.

Ahem... Hello gentlemen riders and the sundry sophisticates of /n/, perhaps we should discuss the proper and mature side of cycling, unracing. To all those that say no to consumerist frivolity and yes to beauty, utility, humility, and craftsmanship. We welcome all who see through the lies of the corporate disposable plastic racer agenda and choose to just ride on fine steel velocipedes

>Much better then EU rails. US rail can support cargo trains 6-7 times more capacity then falling apart EU rail.

You are mixing carrying capacity with maintenance. Even fucking tram tracks that can only support light vehicles may be maintained in pristine condition...

Also "falling apart" EU rail can support intercity trains with 200 kph and high speed rail with 250+ kph, whereas the US foamers piss their pants if something runs 120 kph (or your 70 bald eagles per AR15 bullets).

Your rail network can't even handle double-stack containers, and your couplers have 1/8th the strength of the American standard. Scharfenberg couplers are the only superior technology, and that's already being adopted by American transit.

I can accept cyclists who are less than perfect on the road, it's the obnoxious arrogance of the lycra fags that makes me delighted they are being taxed, licenced and forced to have insurance. They make up a large portion of the cyclist population where I live.

its like this stereotypes exist for a reason and there is always the core truth to them. there is a reason why no matter what nation you're in, what class you are or what your religion is, everyone hates lycra faggot cyclists because they think they own the road and it doesn't matter how new to it they are they always behave like they're in the tour de France. They even refuse to use the cycle lane that millions have been spent on building for them because "it's not the authentic experience for road racing".

Everyone can be happy with this setup:
>Elderly and homeless can take the bus or walk
>Poorfags can use a bicycle
>Chads can use the automobile
>Pedestrians are separated from autos
>Greenery for shade, atmosphere and oxygen
>If absolutely needed then some road space can be repurposed for a train
>Pedestrian overpasses as needed so chads don't have to stop for pedestrians.
What is wrong with this?

Every place I've seen these proposed or built, the 'pedestrian rights' crybabies have fought them. Why?

I suspect that the pedestrian rights activists are actually anti motor vehicle. And forcing pedestrians into the roadway is just a good way to push up deaths and gain political leverage.

Pedestrian overpasses prevent pedestrians from jaywalking. That is problematic.

Quit shilling your blog. No one considers it a legit source of information.

Now that we have a railfan President...

Do we think we’ll see public transit expansion funded by the Feds? I know things like the NHSL spur to King of Prussia is banking on a Biden Presidency.

Do you think he’ll be good for excursions? Bennet Levin seemed to think that he would extend Federal Insurance used to cover Amtrak to excursions, and that he’d repeal Amtrak’s moratorium.

Even the Amtrak of today can be competitive when the airports serving destinations less than 300 miles apart are far flung from their respective metro areas. The plane carrying me from Baltimore BWI to JFK goes pretty quick, but the MTA "Airtrain" most certainly isn't.

I'm not in favor whatsoever of laying concrete ties and catenaries all over the map, though. Just between cities that have bad airports, and sufficiently flat terrain between them. And only if high speed really means high-speed.

Why are Yachts so common among the super rich, but neither airships, nor gigantic flying boats are even a thing nowadays?

I was watching some videos on youtube about superyachts a few months ago and the superyacht lifestyle just sounds pretty dull. They all look alike and only differ in size really. Helipads are nothing out of the ordinary but that's it really.
I would at least want it to be a seaplane tender for like a rotax powered SeaRey and then I thought it would be even cooler to have a giant flying boat. Think Sprouse Goose but with modern materials, it would be insanely expensive, but from what I can tell, that's kind of the point.

And as for airships, I'm not the biggest fan but I figured there'd have to be at least some rich assholes who want an airship that dwarves basically any man made vehicle. Again with the technology and materials of today, why doesn't this stuff exist apart from like warbirds?

Because if an accident happens, the damages are easily in the millions, human lives are at stake and it renders the train line unusable for at least days. Companies want to minimize the risk.

They need to know the line to be able to drive a train on it, they also need to know the train's breaking capacity, but that's mostly concerns freight trains.

To get signed of on a particular line, part of the assessment was to "call the road". I had to sit in a small room with the assessor and verbally describe the entire line as it appears in real life. That included corners, speed boards, points, point speeds, signals, where Junction Indicators and Route indicators could take you, track gradients, platforms etc. Took ages to learn each line. But you have to be able to drive in all kinds of weather and visibility is not always the best.

What went so right?

This is exactly what railways and other businesses need.
Enthusiasts like trains so they expect everybody to deal with their bullshit management just to ride a train, while in reality people care more about customer service and running on (advertised) time.
Virgin trains ran their London-Glasgow service 30 minutes slower than the APT in the 80'syet it had the highest passenger satisfaction ranking on the UK: https://www.shropshirestar.com/news/uk-news/2019/06/27/virgin-trains-tops-passenger-satisfaction-ranking-before-it-loses-franchise/
