Serious questions:1. Why don't we make actual train boats? Like a series of boats all connected to one another.2. Will blimps ever make a comeback? In some way or another?
>>1840312>1. Why don't we make actual train boats? Like a series of boats all connected to one another.We do though, except in environments and contexts where it makes no sense.

>>1840312>1. Why don't we make actual train boats? Like a series of boats all connected to one another.That's retarded. It like tying a bunch of SUVs together and calling that a train. >2. Will blimps ever make a comeback? In some way or another?never

Train on a ferry
>>1844652Wtf is this real?
>>1844766Ferry between Germany and Denmark. No longer in use since bridges and tunnels replaced the route.
>>1841069This seems really dumb

>>1847740plane boat (ded)
>>1847740plane boat but cooler
>>1840312>>1842311Blimps could actually make a comeback. Despite being slow as fuck they are extremely efficient.
>>1847755The coolest plane boat
>>1847778that's a boat plane
>>1847778That may very well be the ugliest fucker that ever took off from water. Staggeringly enormous and engineered, but just ugly through and through.
>>1847635What is going on in this image?
>>1848096It can't fly though
>>1848298Exactly, it's a plane boat, not a boat plane.
>>1848298It can fly actually, it is inefficient above 6 m over the surface but if the waves are taller than that (and in the Caspian Sea they very well can be) it can lift as high as ~30 meters to clear them.
>>18482931982, north shore of Alaska. Because of the mix of ice & open water, hover barges (hovercraft that just hover, no propulsion) are used to move supplies. This tested if helicopters could tow a hoverbarge, and they succeeded.

>>1849981Cheap to get in Poland: simply Google for ŽUK Mitor-01.
>>1842365Imagine if rednecks lived in train cars instead of RVs
>>1840312so something like this?
>>1844059>nuclear powered >still has a "fireman" God I fucking hate railroad unions
>>1854346You'd rather a nuclear train without someone to tend to the 'fire'?
>>1842365Somewhere on the way from my apartment to my parents house there was an old boxcar on a field (held up with blocks) advertising horses.
>>1841653A lot of american hobos seem to carry a US flag. Why ?
Breadbus>>1856308Same reason they wear various pieces of military uniforms. They can claim they are veterans, which may or may not be true, and possibly garner some extra sympathy from passerbys
Crazy train!at the Hopital St. Jean de Dieu mental asylum in Montreal
>>1843918The book was better
>>1863298Well, when you've got a large vaguely building-shaped object that you're disposing, why melt it down? Trains make for surprisingly good prefab building components.
>>1841578what a beast.
High Speed Train car
>>1840048actual tram boat with electric overhead wire
>>1867812I wonder how fast this thing is actually going.
>>1867812should be fast enough https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpCzp0CmjY
the least autistic thread on 4channel
>>1867849Probably not very fast. It’s on the MKT line in a residential neighborhood in Houston. I’d imagine these rail inspection cars could go as fast as if they were on rubber tires but given their purpose there was no need to haul ass.
>>1864957Thanks Adolf Putin
>>1840497That gives new meaning to the word TRANSport
>>1850566Hey that’s like the Lego set

>>1870750>>1870808>suspension railways are hecking val-ACK!
>>1873841How long did they have to sit before startup? all the fluids are in when they leave the production line, 1st start and tune then they drive to a holding lot before transport.
>>1847635>>1848549Incredibly dangerous maneuver for helos. Huge balls on the pilot/crew.
