Folding roadbikes

No.1126184 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
What does /n/ think of Moultons or Bromptons?

I'm from the general aviation world and in the process of building time, and a folding roadbike seems like a great way to stretch my legs and have a bit more variety at destination airports when I'm out looking for $100 hamburgers.

Do any of you guys do inline skates? /asp/ ignored me and /sp/ deleted my thread so I figure this is the only other board I could find advice for these things.

What are some good brands to buy?
Is there any way to learn how to use them other than put them on and keep getting up each time I fall down?
In videos I never see people wearing helmets or knee/elbow pads, am I gonna look like a total dork if I go out in public wearing them?
Are there any fashionable pads to wear or ones that I could wear under baggy clothes to not look like a complete tool?
Any other information you guys have would be great, I'm just starting and I don't really know what to do as I just bought a cheap pair to get me comfortable being on wheels.

Interurban General

No.1093984 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
The interurban (or radial railway) is a type of electric railway, with streetcar-like light electric self-propelled railcars which run within and between cities or towns. They were prevalent in North America between 1900 and 1925 and were used primarily for passenger travel between cities and their surrounding suburban and rural communities. Limited examples existed in Europe and Asia. Interurban as a term encompassed the companies, their infrastructure, and the cars that ran on the rails.

George W. Hilton and John F. Due identified four characteristics of an interurban:

>Electric power for propulsion.
>Passenger service as the primary business.
>Equipment heavier and faster than urban streetcars.
>Operation on tracks in city streets, and in rural areas on roadside tracks or private right-of-way.

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.

Penn Central Appreciation Thread

No.1096182 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
ITT: Post rare and not-so-rare Penn Centrals, including predecessor lines Pennsylvania, New York Central, and New Haven. Early Conrail is okay too.

Penn Central is an interesting railroad because it was such a clusterfuck, covered a huge geographic territory, and also because it rostered on some level nearly every first and second generation diesel locomotive model built. It also had some cool and unique electric operations. It's the quintessential 1970s rustbelt railroad.
