Stanley/Smudger's character was actually based on Awdry's custom 009 model. It had many complications(weak motor and frequently derailed). Awdry eventually gave up, and put him on static display as a pumping engine. Pic related is all that is left of him.

anyone who rides a $1000+ mtb in current year probably does real mtb riding. every young adult knows how to use google and read forums to research bikes. the most clueless normie would probably buy a hybrid bike or perhaps a very entry level hardtail. the stores don't even sell cheap full sus bikes for adults, the cheapest is like a giant stance for $1500+.

i checked some stores in my country, even for children they don't sell full sus bikes. maybe those $200 full sus BSOs are a burger thing with unscrupulous boomer walmart chink brands. there are some 27.5" ones on decathlon starting at £500.

Commuting? Then obviously you ride your every day clothes.

Anyways, skin tight clothing is a must if you want to go fast and long.
Anyone claiming something else, has never focused on cycling as the activity itself but as a means to get from A to B.

Hi guys, I don't know if you remember me but I am the one who used to archive NK vehicles. I've been on both Imgbb and flickr but now I've moved to a forum so if anyone wants to join or need any info you can request it here: https://nkrecognition.proboards.com/ It is not transportation limited so you can ask about anything that needs identification.

That's caused by the format. Cross-patterning as "Platform A, track 6, section A, car-1-5" would do fine.

>>1634522
The door closing broadcast are also announced by track or line name, especially when there is cross-platform interchange on an individual island platform (truely next to each other, not same-level opposite-side parallel transfer)

>>1635612
Would be useful for mixed bay-side platform (with both dead-end and through tracks), and cut platforms too.

I grew up with platform numbering and I never saw a problem with it. Our station had 2 island platforms with 4 through tracks. Platform 1 with tracks 101 and 103 was for downline trains and platform 2 with tracks 102 and 104 was for upline trains. The announcements and information panels firstly guided you to the correct platform and then told you the track.

So a train announcement went like this: The regional train 666 from Empty Fields continuing to Nowhere-upon-Nothing will arrive on platform 2, track 104.

You locate the platform, then the track. It had the advantage that if there were trackworks, you still kept the platform but just switched the track so that for example platform 2 was always the right choice for all upline trains.

Now I live with the German system with track numbering only. It's not better but it's not worse. The tracks are marked visibly, the announcements are a bit shorter (omitting the platform part) and you can still find your train. Only during trackworks you have to keep in mind that track 3 now parallels track 6 on the same platform, so if your train switches tracks, don't panic...

Who here has two bikes for two specific purposes?

I'm one of those who was originally looking for a 'gravel bike' because I wanted a bike that would serve me well as a commuter and as a recreational bike, but the truth is I learned that if you want to do two different things you need two different tools, and so I got a road bike which I commuter'd up and a 90's mountain bike which I gravel'd up.

It was without a doubt the best cycling related decision I ever made, and the benefits go way beyond simply having two bikes that each fulfill their alloted roles perfectly.

>I can keep my commuter bike set up for winter longer
in the UK we have rain all fucking year so instead of removing fenders, switching tyres etc I just leave that bike winter ready most of the year, if we get a hot spell then I might slap the licks on and pull the fenders off, but I used to do that shit several times a year and it was a ball ache.

>Spare bike
if one bike dfevelopes an issue I always have the opther bike, it's not happened too often, once I had a puncture which I discovered as I was leaving the house for work so I just hopped on my mtb and fixed it when I got home, another time my mtb chain snapped, no worries,. I removed the fenders and other shit from my road bike, stuck the treaded tyres on and too that gravel riding and it was surprisingly decent, although it did make me appreciate and miss the 1990's mtb geometry of my samba.

So fuck trying to get one bike to do everything, just get a bike for every need. Pic related is just there for the keks.

Four 4 years ago I had 16 bikes at one point. I'm down to 3 now, not counting a few that a friend out of state has in his shed.

1. commuting/touring/do anything bike
2. fast road bike
3. more casual road bike set up for rough gravel roads or really long rides

And realistically that's all I need based on where I live right now since there's not really any appealing mountain biking near me or a need for a winter weather bike.
>>
>>1634804
I bought a gravel bike because that fits perfectly with the type of riding I do.
I only ride for fun and exercise, with a good mix of on- and off-road.
A gravel bike is decent on the road (much better than the cross/hybrid I rode before) and I can still ride unpaved paths and even singletrail.
It's perfect for me and nobody can convince me otherwise.

If you ever want more speed on road, try getting a second set of wheels specifically for road and swapping back and forth. Way cheaper than getting a whole other bike, and you can get some really nice wheels with the money you saved

I have 2, a race bike and a commuter road bike. Sometimes when i dont have much stuff to take with me i treat myself and ride the race bike to work. I dont feel like i need any more even though bike industry marketing tells me if i spend another 9k or something i could have a 1kg lighter bike and it would be so worth it.

Whenever i feel like that i just ride my steel commuter with alu mudguards and it makes the race bike feel super lightweight and fast by comparison and i fall in love with rising it again.
