Did NTSB even get to look at the forensics, or are they just working from models?

Not doubting the findings but if these judgements were made without Chinese cooperation then they are largely worthless.
>>
>>1801660
Idk, CAAC and NTSB both deny the leak and the CAAC in particular is screeching about "anti Chinese propaganda" or whatever.

The specific "source" of the Wall street Journal claim is "persons close to chief NTSB investigators" so it's more or less hearsay at this point.

>the CAAC in particular is screeching about "anti Chinese propaganda"
if anything this makes it even more credible
remember when saying russia would invade the ukraine was russophobia?

Imagine if the CAAC leaked such a story before the grieving families could be informed.

Maybe it was just like China Airlines flight 006? The plane lost an engine and the crew spent too long focusing on that, which caused the plane to stall and dive at 90 degrees. They might have pulled out of it only for it to happen again?

>>1802294
I don't care about that, although to be honest I would ride without paying out of principle because fuck incompetent politicians.
I care more about the fact that staff could be used more efficiently, instead of doing ticket raids and other fare collection activities they could be used to guide people at crowded stations.

I travel to Amsterdam each day by train for work.
I feel such embarresment when I see tourist lost and trying to find the right train to Schiphol Airport.
The Dutch Railways should pick up on these signals and improve the station and platforms.

My train departs across from the one that goes to Schiphol airport.
I tend to stay at the station 3-4 hours each day after work, pointing tourists in the right direction.
Till I'm too tired and hungry and I go home.

At home I'm too tired to cook and I eat a bowl of yohurt with fruit and go straight to bed.

>>1799559
The problem is this
> Amsterdam has 15 platforms
> One end is the "a" end, the other end is the "b" end (see picture i posted)

Solution
> Put clear arrows on the floor point to the "a" and "b" ends of the platform
> Have a staff member on the platform with a vest "can I help you"
> Clearly mark that the platform that goes to Schiphol aiport. 14a is the express train and 14b is the commuter train.
>>
>>1800083
well, i can't argue with any of that. wayfinding is very important for making travellers feel welcome and confident that they are in the right place
>>
OP here, I'm a little creeped out. Almost as if the Dutch Railway company browses 4chan. Today and yesterdag there were staff on platform 14 with vests "can I help you?" in several languages.

I think the NS get its costumer feedback mainly via 4chan, so you are correct.

We'll always have All the Stations, where they went to every single British train station over a few weeks in the summer. A great record for future generations.

The original All the Stations is actually top tier /n/ viewing material. They're autistic, yes, but not like foamers are. It's really comfy, and lighthearted. So just pretend that as you watch it you don't know they've broken up and it'll be an even better viewing experience.

In our densest cities, we could just put in an entire bus lane. But in Sunbelt cities we could add these with basically no disruption to traffic because the streets have so many lanes. It would increase ridership and reduce travel times.

If you want a good authoritarian state with great transit, PRC is right there. If you want comfy liberal democracies with good transit, Japan and Taiwan are right there. Mind you, drugs are legal in none of them, since apparently that's your idea of a good time lol. Singapoor and HK are just totally outclassed by culturally similar nations which are close by, the mystique that surrounds either is solely a holdover from 50 years ago in boomer times when they were the only places accessible to Anglo tourists because everyone else in the region was poor or couldn't into English. Now they are just bygone socially stratified hellstates, the only defense people can mount of them are apparently "they aren't Thailand, u mad )))))))))".

When I was a little, ang moh , school boy back in the 80's, I used to take the 191 Leyland SBS bus back home. The fare was 25 cents. Sometimes the bus driver would just wave me on and I would then spend that on a Sarsi fizz or Milo in bag. Good times.
