Did I miss the era of trans-atlantic passenger ships? I've been on a ocean liner before but from what I can see all thats left is the QM2 and even basic tickets are expensive as fuck. I guess I could just go on a Carnival cruise line for a few days...

>Bragg described the initial impact as little more than “a bump and some shaking.” All five men in the cockpit, located at the forward end of the 747’s distinctive upper-deck hump, saw the KLM jet coming and had ducked. Knowing they’d been hit, Bragg instinctively reached upward in an effort to pull the “fire handles” — a set of four overhead-mounted levers that cut off the supply of fuel, air, electricity, and hydraulics running to and from the engines. His arm groped helplessly. When he looked up, the roof was gone.

>Turning around, he realized that the entire upper deck had been sheared off at a point just aft of his chair. He could see all the way to the tail, two hundred feet behind him. The fuselage was shattered and burning. He and Captain Grubbs were alone in their seats, on a small, fully exposed perch over high above the ground. Everything around them had been lifted away like a hat. The second officer and jumpseat stations, their occupants still strapped in, were hanging upside-down through what seconds earlier was the ceiling of the first class cabin.

Hello /n/

Like many cyclists here, I have had a few bikes stolen over the years. I hate bike thieves and the lack of action taken against them. So, I am going to be setting up my own bait bikes as I live near a top ten theft hotspot. I have a nice shiny road bike arriving on the 1st along with a gps tracker and a rubbish bike lock! Wish me luck :)

In my neighborhood there's a two lane highway, construction went on for nearly two years making roads narrow (to create wide bike lanes with protected islands) plenty of apartment complexes are being built all over and it pisses me off that nobody will use those bike lanes,milions of dollars wasted, and a whole bunch more traffic. I did some research and it seems they hired some Europeans to design the roads. Why the actual fuck do they want to convert us to thin eurocuck roads? Shitty pic but just example of the massive increase in traffic I'm seething so hard. Am I in wrong for being angry about this?

>the pic always has to be of transit infrastructure (or part of a city)
>You can ask yes of no questions to try to narrow down the place

Now for the first pic, if you haven't already guessed, it's somewhere in the US...

Good luck a/n/ons

>the clearance damage doesn't seem too much of a problem.
easy peasy, the cause of the collision is old station platform stairs. few hours of smashing the old stairs should do the trick.

I forgot to mention that in some railroad switches, the cowcatcher had some close calls with the rail switch's electric motor.

>Also KCI already use felica system on their cards.
it seems KCI also pursues Suica payment system for easier usage in future E217 operations

>The problem is the age of E217 and it's reputation for failing frequently due to long operation range.
we had experiences in handling old trainsets, especially types like Tokyo Metro 5000 & Toyo Rapid 1000. However, experiences in maintaining post JNR-era train designs is still limited so yes this is also main concern

So, am I missing something? Did the UP own the Milwaukee Road? Why do some MILW engines have their yellow scheme? Is this just a coincidence or is there a reason. Does it go back to something involving the City of San Francisco?

>Why do some MILW engines have their yellow scheme?
Because Union Pacific was retarded. For whatever reason UP had a partnership deal with Rock Island, Chicago Northwestern and I believe someone else for long-distance passenger trains from Chicago to points west. CRIP ran part of it, CNW ran part of it, UP supplied the equipment and also ran part of it. Something like that.

Well, as I'm sure you guys know the Rock Island and CNW were on shaky turf just like MILW, with Rock prob being the worst. Eventually the condition of CRIP and CNW forced UP to axe the deal, and they sought out MILW to partner with instead.

Part of the deal was for MILW to provide their highly reputed passenger services on UP trains. This also called for MILW passenger equipment to be painted in Union Pacific colors (which was actually cheaper and easier to maintain than MILW's superior colors) so equipment could be shared as needed.

So after about 1965, MILW's home passenger trains like the Twin Cities Hiawatha, Olympian Hiawatha, Pioneer Limited and Arrow would be turning more and more yellow, until finally...

>didn't MILW's FP45s not have dynamics?
When you go back to the 1980's, 1970's, and especially the 1960's, many diesel locomotives did not have Dynamic brakes.

In today's world it's rare to not have them. 40 years ago it was about half and half. MILW's passenger trains didn't usually encounter serious hills (TC Hiawatha route is pretty damn flat) and were so equipped.

Can confirm, if you don't sit right in the middle of a single lane road where they can't overtake you, they will 100% try to overtake you, even 20m before a roundabout despite the fact the you want very much not to be squished while they enter the roundabout.

I did a cross-Canada bike tour a couple years back, and I can't even offer an estimate at the number of times cars passed me right before blind corners or hilltops.
Saw a fair number of near misses where they barely made it out of the way as another vehicle came into sight.
Like, holy shit I know all about the cager "ME GO FAST, NOTHING MUST SLOW ME DOWN" mentality, but slow down for all of 5 seconds until you can be sure no one is coming or one day your number is going to be called and you'll kill yourself or someone else.
