There are at least two of these locomotives here in the UK (this example being at the Kent and East Sussex Railway) and another one at Bressingham I believe called King Haakon. Are there still any of these locomotives left in Norway? (Note: I am from the UK)
We have 3 type 21 class locomotives in Norway, of which 1 is currently operative, 1 is out for heavy maintenance and 1 is just standing around. No other Norwegian standard-gauge locomotive class has this many examples of it still preserved. The preserved type 21 locomotives here aren't strictly class 21c, like the ones in England are, but the differences are mainly such things as overheating equipment and compound machinery.
I see, thanks for the info on them.
Anyone have suggestions for good or interesting CVRs to listen to or videos to watch about in flight emergencies?
This one is probably the best example of crew resource management I've ever heard especially if you read up on the entire story:
>want to become a train driver preferably mainline
>anyone have any experience in this position need advice
>what are some things that can help me stand out when applying for a trainee-ship driver position?
I've been doing it for 3 years now. It's alright, but you don't have much of a social life. Even when you're off, you're not really off if you work on an extraboard.
How did you get the job?
Doesnt seem like most companies are hiring anywhere
I applied online and interviewed. I had some college education, so I guess that helped.
As far as railroads not hiring, freight has been down a bit these last few years. Companies also hired a lot of employees and then furloughed almost as many. As such, there's not really a big demand.
Just bought this for riding around the trails at my farmhouse in the countryside. Did I make a mistake?
said, but if you paid over $700 you got raped.
>alivio dérailleurs >suntour fork >no name cranks >wheel are probably shit >placeholder tier seat
I have a specialized hardrock and I like it. I didn't break anything on this bike for over five years despite being over 100kg and riding fairly aggressively.

You are a fucktard.

Did you mean botched?
Really nice looking bike, been thinking of a Scott scale 945 myself, sram 1x11 (don't think it exists in the US though).
Why do cyclists have such a persecution complex?
ugh my racist uncle called me a faggot for wearing spandex and told me i'm going impotent god i hate METHburg (heh take that bible-thumping BIGOTS looks like ur not so virtuous after all) so glad i got out and joined my fellow godless strivers in sodom and gomorrah
But that's true, spandex is for fags, you fag.
Because that sucker got s DUI
Pedestrian and public transit user who lives in a city:
I've literally never had any sort of issues with drivers, but I have self-centered idiots on bikes trying to hit me every few days that I always need to watch out for. The constant whining about how oppressed you are and weird delusions of how you think cars act is just a bonus reason to hate you.
Are trikes for old people, women who can't ride a bike and special needs people?
Will I be seen as retarded if I was caught riding one of these babies to the nearest dollar store?
I want to hitch a cargo trike with a trailer for maximum moving potential. Fair warning though it;s a pain in the fucking arse because you have to ride like you're a car so no sneaky pavement hopping to skip a one-way road and things like that.
That's true, you can feel it loose traction if the drive wheel goes over a dip. As for hills, super low gear. People will shout at you to switch to a higher gear, but if you stop on a hill and you're in too high a gear you're fucked. Even happens to me on flats on the rick if I forget to gear down when I stop.
The turning circle on them is fantastic though.
When I was little there was an old lady who used to ride one around the neighborhood.
Personally if I needed to carry groceries I'd go for something like this.
If I tried to build a trike, I'd try to drive each rear wheel through its own freewheel- a diff would be overkill since you don't expect a reverse gear in a trike anyway.
I suppose that'd introduce a slight complication in that each rear wheel would need its own brake, though.
This build uses a diff (allegedly). Not a fan of the beach cruiser look but it's a neat trike
Hello /n/, recently a trackless trolley line in my city re-opened after being closed for ~5 years for road reconstruction. Route 73 (Harvard-Waverly) along with routes 71 and 72 were converted from streetcar to trackless in the 1950s, and remain as the last surviving trackless lines in Boston. As we just got a foot of snow I figured it would be cozy to go ride the newly rewired 73 line. Here are the pics I took.
That is exactly the type of information i wanted to know. Thank you very much!
Fellow Bostonians! On a T related note, what is up with the Copley green line stop? I've found myself wanting to go east from there very often but I cannot...
Because the street runs south-east?
black magic, geez
ITT: post your favorite Wikipedia route diagram.
This board is less assburger than usual today, so let's fix that.
I prefer actual timetables for some reason
because your a fag
don't move to portland though, it fucking sucks ass here. i hate it so much now and every fucking person that moves here makes it that much worse
It has everything you don't need to know.
Is it practical to buy a Mountain Bike, and swap out the wheels ( with street tires on them so owning 2 sets total) when I want to ride a paved trail?
If you use the mtb to ride actual mtb trails then yes. Unless your hubs are the same you might have to adjust your brake calipers and/or rear derailleur slightly when you switch wheels, which isn't too bad.
People will tell you "huurrr it's not geared high enough" but even 36x11 is fine for inner-city usage.
Thanks, i did not think about breaks....I hate dealing with them honestly...but it couldn't hurt to get better.
Yes, I'd specially consider a 29er hardtail (xc or trail oriented) for that.
If you're riding primarily on paved surfaces then don't get a mountain bike. If it's an even mix of on and off road then off road tyres will likely suffice unless you have some really aggressive tread (e.g. Maxxis Wetscream).
buy a 27.5 mtn bike. then you can switch the tires for smooth 650b for city riding.
What's your favorite narrow gauge railroad and why?
Oahu Railway & Land company here, largest narrow gauge class one common carrier in the USA, and only one with a double track mainline, ABS signaling system, and electrically operated turntable.
the OEG, an interurban between Mannheim and Heidelberg
Because I took it to school as a child.
Is that still in operation? I can't find any info on it.
The line yes.
The company OEG (Oberrheinische Eisenbahngesellschaft) doesn't, it merged with the tram companies of Heidelberg, Mannheim and Ludwigshafen and the RHB railway into a new company called Rhein-Neckar-Verkehr (RNV) in the year 2005.
The old names OEG and RHB for the interurban lines still live on among the population.
So #21 was built and Indonesia for sugar cane hauling and then imported to the U.S (specifically Carver, Massachusetts).
How the fuck did they get that shit through customs?
