>single engine worth more than the plane

Welcome to Indian Transportation General. This is Indian Railways edition. I am just an autist from India trying to spend time here to cut back on things I don't want to remain in my lifestyle.

I will be telling and discussing about Indian Transportation, its history, present and future here, theme of this edition will be Indian Railways

I will be starting with few random facts:

First train in India, ran from Bombay to Thane, a 34km stretch.

Indian Railways is the fourth largest rail network in the world, carrying more than 23 million passengers a day.

Indian Railways is managed by the state and is among the world's largest employers, employing more than 1.4 million people.

These streetcars started with New York’s Third Avenue Railway System splicing old single truck cars into double truck bodies, then after WWII they were sold to Bombay/Mumbai where they were sliced lengthwise to narrow them and the doors removed. I’m assuming none of them survived.

That’s the one I bought last time. I think it’s fine, what’s more important is to stay on top of cleaning and doing a good thorough job when you go in for a thorough clean. Application matters too, wipe off that excess. If you you’re looking for a specific recommendation, based on some comparisons I saw Muc-off Dry Lube looks like some great stuff and I plan to buy next when I run out of this. Then again I might look into waxing- not so much for the marginal gains but the lessened upkeep and maintenance. I ride daily, hours at a time and the rides keep getting longer.

Yeah this seems like the right reason.

I went Manchester-Nottingham for the cricket yesterday and I would just like to say "fuck EMR". Liverpool-Norwich route is -despite what the rail company says- an intercity route. They put on a 2-carriage Class 158 service. 2 carriages. On a Saturday. On a busy route. On the day of a sporting event. It's a fucking joke.

What the fuck? It should not be cheaper for me to drive than to take the train. The price of train tickets completely deincentivises public transport. I don't understand it at all. The train is going to that location Anyway so bears no extra cost by having me on board, so why charge £60?

Car is king until the British government nationalises the railway and subsidises its use across the board.

Its a real shame. People justify all this with the pageantry and I gotta say, as a railfan I would have gotten a kick out of her being taken to London by rail, possibly even hauled by a steam engine, but no this country took the option that is simultaneously boring and decadent as usual. We might even have avoided a lot of this queueing circus if more folks had had a chance to see her closer to home.

They didn’t. Not really. The headlines made it look like United et Al were throwing money down to buy them sight unseen, but they were more or less placeholder bids. I.e. “If you can produce these and IF they meet performance specs and IF they’re available when you say they’re going to be and IF the price is what you say it will be, we might buy some. Possibly”

Dude, they just lost the one engine supplier that was willing to do preliminary engineering studies for suitable engines. My guess is that other major engine manufacturers didn't even bother.

Yea, no shit. It doesn't roll or royce.

Charles III actually built a walkable, mixed-use town with traditional English architecture, and people really live and work there.

>>1848395
The swytch air kit having a 700g battery seems like a huge advantage for a bike that you want to lift regularly for multimodal transport. And then you can take it on holiday on a plane...
>>
>>1851649
Swytch has a cadence sensor, which gives you far less control over your speed.
In terms of lifting, with the Brompton you generally want to hold the battery bag in your other hand if you're lifting. Not sure how easy that would be on the Swytch, or if you're forced to just carry the whole thing together. Two-handed carrying an unfolded bicycle is one thing, but folded.. is quite a lot harder due to its shape.

Can't argue about the plane travel. Brompton really needs to come up with a smaller battery.
