Amazon Japan has a lot of stuff and the prices are good as long as it's first party Amazon. Plus you get 2-day shipping to the US for the same price most sites charge for 5 day shipping. Some people also like HobbySearch but I find their shipping and prices a little high.

I've actually never looked at Amazon Japan except for when I was looking for used sets. I primarily use HobbySearch for the new releases that I want.

I ordered some stuff from Plaza Japan back in mid March and it never showed up so I just got a refund. Has anyone else had the Kung Flu affect train shipments from Asia or elsewhere? Normally I get good prices and cheap shipping to the U.S. There’s a whole world of Japanese N scale that never makes it to the U.S. market.

Positive thoughts please guys. One of the best hobby stores in the state is surrounded by vandalism and looting, and one of the local HO scale clubs is not far from the PD shop that was burned down.

Most accidents I have been in were my own fault, not from being hit. The one time I was hit was when I was a noob and riding on the sidewalk and a lady in a Jeep didn't think I was coming up to the crossing that fast. She was super upset and offered to give me some cash after. But I was fine because I had a helmet and my bike is a tank.

All other times were from me doing stupid shit like trying to jump off a thing and getting caught on stairs or doing something like >>1491809

Then again, I don't think the current one is THAT bad. It's certainly better than most of the euro-white mush we have today, but I do understand the disappointment of going from something so striking and iconic like the old one to something that's barely "okay".

what gets me the worst about the new livery is the dropping of the old logo. i feel like that livery would be better if the bottom was blue and the lettering was more distinct. the metallic grey and blue tail is good tho imho.

>How do you avoid this when cycling?
Consistent and regularly fueling yourself with good nutrition.

If I eat a good breakfast, I can go 4-5 hours without refueling and if conditions are right, I can ride that length without hydrating but in both cases I'll be worn out but not completely burned out.

Good Breakfast
>1/4cup of steel cut oats boiled for 30 minutes then topped with 1tbsp brown sugar, cinnamon, and splash of olive oil
>cappuccino, 6oz espresso, 6oz whole milk steamed/frothed, 1 tbsp brown sugar
>2 slices whole wheat or honey wheat bread, hummus or butter spread or pb/j or dipped in olive oil + balsamic vinegar + dried garlic and herbs mix
>2 boiled eggs, 9 minute boil, chilled in cool water, then salt and pepper after peeled
>16oz glass of whole milk
>full range once a day multivitamin/mineral

Sometimes I don't have the time for the oats or eggs but the bread, milk, multivitamin, and espresso are essential. And for dinner, I almost always have beans, meat/fish, bread, and milk. I need to eat more fruits and veggies, I kinda don't eat any fruits or veggies, just a fuck ton of carbs, meat, and dairy plus the multivitamin

People have been "lambasting" CNN and the rest of the media for 3 years for that and much much more and if anything the problem has grown. Journalists only exist to feed hate porn to their echo chambers and no longer need to care about their credibility because outrage gets much better ratings than facts.

Hambro recommends Giant, Look, and Time. Also Specialized looks decent on his official chart-o-shitness though I've never heard him specifically recommend them. I think Giant and Specialized are america-only and the other two are expensive, so....move to america?

Aluminum is safer to buy than carbon, as it's harder to fuck up from a manufacturing standpoint. Still fuck Canyon though.

I used to unironically blast around on a non electric one. Incredibly underrated method of transport. It's quick, easy, and you can flaunt traffic rules fucking easy because as soon as you hit a red light you can just hop off and become a pedestrian.

Can't really do that with the electric ones because they're heavy as fuck and quite bulky. I miss it but it's not as good since I moved to Europe. Too many cobbles.

This is the Newark Flat Crossing: the only part left on the English rail network where two railway lines cross at grade like this.

The problem is, the East Coast Main Line - the north-south line in the image, one of the network's primary arteries - is crossed by another busy line. This puts a hard cap on rail traffic that can traverse the ECML. Complicating factors are the presence of the nearby River Trent, and the important A46 road, both of which also use bridges to cross the Trent nearby.

It's a mess: how would you re-engineer the crossing to remove the bottleneck and free up the ECML?

Think the only approach is to construct a new bridge over the ECML carrying Lincoln line.

Cost of getting a blockade on ECML is likely to be the governing factor. Any works would need to be constructed offline to minimise disruption. Probably would try to realign to the west of existing Lincoln line as span needed over Trent is less.

Got to provide sufficient clearance over ECML so probably need to start the approach embankments suitably far away, probably from the other side of the Trent. This would need a new bridge over the Trent to carry Lincoln line, likely needing a truss bridge to minimise below deck thickness. Then need a new half through bridge over ECML, construct substructure outside NR land then lift or launch superstructure over weekend possession.

Running into 8 figure cost so can’t imagine cost will provide sufficient benefit.

>Are they closing the channel tunnel because of brexit
Why people do such uneducated comments about things they don't understand?
Do anybody understands how the tunnel works, why Eurostar and Eurotunnel are the only companies who operate though it (DB tries but gave up), why the Class 373 was the only passenger train allowed though the tunnel for 10 years since the CTRL opened, why the Class 374 is a single long unit instead of two coupled units like everywhere in Europe, why Eurostar trains have lots of destinations going into Europe but trains toward the UK only depart from Gare Du Nord, Lille Europe or Brussels international?
tldr: the UK never was into the free immigration thing. The brexit changes almost nothing for the eurotunnel.

Exactly: UK has visa free travel within the EU, but always had border control. It's never been in Schengen.

The issue has been with Northern Ireland and Eire who currently don't have border control but this would need to be put in place as Eire is within the EU.
