I've been making a lot of railway journeys this summer and have just done the Mid Cheshire line which was nice and the Penistone line which was beautiful but not very comfy being stuck in a crowded pacer for almost an hour and a half.

Planning to do the Settle > Carlisle line in about two weeks so looking forward to that.

Where have my fellow britbongs been lately - made any nice train journeys? Any hidden gems? What about nice/unique stations visited?

Planes that never flew thread.

Let's have a thread series dedicated to honoring aviation marvels that could have changed the aerospace world as we know it, but sadly had the plug pulled before they even had the chance. Gone but not forgotten.

RULES:

>aircraft must be serious proposals from real manufacturers and not just outlandish pitches from either retarded engineers or aerospace enthusiasts
>aircraft who's development was cancelled, but managed to have one or more prototype test flights are disqualified (thus they technically did "fly)
>global rules and local /n/ rules apply don't be a faggot.

Starting with a classic: the McDonnell Douglas MD-12, or the plane the A380 wishes it was. It would have been the first real competitor to the 747 and would have solidified the supremacy of the American aerospace industry, but complications with MD fucking up the cargo door design on the DC-10 made customers never trust them again and led to the entire company going under. They were bought by Boeing in 1997.

>19-20th century steam thread
If it's running on steam it counts
But it must be either running or under overhaul.

Why hasn't someone just come with a boat carrying like 1000 tonnes of soil and some walls to keep it in place and made an island here

Have any of you fags ever been on a sailboat?

I grew up as one of the few white ppl in miami so i did a lot of sailing. I'm looking into buying a 35' ketch to liveaboard. any of you fags ever lived on a boat? I'm mostly worried about cleaning laundry. Everything else i can deal with, but how the fuck do i do laundry on a small-ish boat?

Are there any known late 19th-early/mid 20th Century intact examples of tramp steamers left in existence (not counting shipwrecks/abandoned ones)? Any still in revenue service? I imagine some obscure freighter line in a Third World shithole might still have one or two up and running on duct tape.
