It's that time again. Post trams and trains and other rail vehicles. Both vehicles from AES and c*pitalist countries welcome.I am looking for this one very aesthetic picture of a tram going down a grassy incline. I think it was from Czechoslovakia but not sure.

>>6035In the Greater Pittsburgh Area we've the T (T standing for trolley) which does not cover the vast majority of the city and only has one really long line that goes through the suburbs to the county line; there is rolling farmland not a minute away from Library station. Most of the rail system is vestigial, because some people actually took action to prevent the autotards from tearing it all up. The current mayor of Pittsburgh (Dem) got elected on the promise of expanding the T at least to the universities of the city, but hasn't even done that. Instead he has decided to 'erect' a Bus Rapid Transit corridor. In short, we at least have something, but I'll be damned if the powers that B intend to let us have anything more.

>>6035This is the Bergen Light rail. I read somewhere that Lichtenstein has free public transportation, and are about to legalize cannabis. I saw the same kind of trams in a video from Switzerland a while back, but I don't know what town.It's quite banal, public transportation. But it stimulates the economy. The Norwegian media is taunting the government, for their unsolicited mega expensive road upgrades with toll roads. What's more, the projects are outsorced to foreign disposable companies, when the money could have generated local jobs. Corruption, I call it, but if you talk about it, you're a marked man, socially. So the journalists make up indirect terms like smøring.The narrative has shifted towards northern rail expansion. It's been planned for over a hundred years, but it never really materialized. Road work is tricky because the soil warps when it freezes and thaws, and the bedrock is so hard. Rocks have also been falling quite a bit since the glaciers got fewer.These trams and the heavier (former) NSB locomotives, are completely electric, and powered by hydroelectric plants. The switching sounds from the motors fascinates me, so I'm doing a graduate degree in electronics. I've got a bit of cabin fever while waiting for the next semester to start, so I apologise for my verbosity.The current government has restructured the entire shebang into something called vy, whatever the fuck that's supposed to mean, and charged millions to do it. Privatization of the English rail system is still controversial, so they called it konkurranseutsetting - exposure to competition. Whatever lines their pockets.

It goes less than 15mph and its tracks only cover less than a quarter of the city, which is a geographically small to begin with for "major city" standards. The part of the city the streetcar covers are the wealthy areas, not where anyone actually has to go for work.Fuck Scott Walker.

>>6042Iirc, the SkyTrain uses a linear motor, which means the motor is actually split in two parts: an active part on board, driving the wheels, and a reactive part which is a kind of middle rail between the two where the wheels lay. The advantages are a smaller height of the train (which could save time and money if it's used as a subway by digging tunnels with a smaller radius), smaller weight and apparently they require much less maintenance than traditional rotary motors.A drawback is the high, screeching sound it makes - it's the same with low speed maglevs.>>6049Brought to you by Hitachi Rail Italy aka AnsaldoBreda, renowned for this product - which is pretty dope - but also one of the shittiest trams ever plus a nice scandal involving the clogs when they sold them "high speed" trains litterally falling apart while testing.Iirc, the body is designed by Pininfarina, which is a nice way to throw away money in the project and btw, white is uneasy on the eye…>>6056Those tram are made in Switzerland by Stadler, who is in part owned by an MP from a rightwing party…I think the shit they are doing with the railways is the same thing EU member states had to do, but I don't know if Norway is under any obligation to adapt its laws also in this sector.And the privatisation in the UK has been an unmitigated disaster, except for the profiteers obviously.>>6058Just another proof Burger republicans are subhuman tier.>>6059Abolish Wisconsin.>>6050All right!

I'm still waiting on that glorious spine line expansion out to Monroeville. I've always been jealous of folks in the south suburbs for having access to the train. It takes me 2 bloody hours to get into the city from where I'm at after after a 25 minute walk to the bus stop. https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~blelloch/spine.htmlImagine a fully expanded Pittsburgh subway/lightrail. I dream of it. I've also wondered if we could invent some form of light funicular to replace all the falling apart stairways around town.

>>6062I'm zoomer and have only been on leftypol a few months so I haven't really been politically active in person; I ought to get more involved.I wish I lived in proximity to the southward (only) line of the T, but those stations really do drive the property value up an exorbitant amount; it still is quicker to get there from Clairton of course and makes an easier ride to the city.Clearly no Republicrat mayor is ever actually gonna expand the T, they'll just keep adding bus at most. A proper Socialist would of course be ideal, but I figure if one of these rising DSA or some manner of progressive Dem would be elected, they would actually expand it in some capacity.Looking at this old light rail and interurban map never fails to piss me off however. The entire goddamn area was well and covered, and it all got torn up completely. To be replaced with some 'lovely' and 'fun-to-navigate' highway.Part of me would hope that the coming crisis of capital would cause the construction of more light rail solutions, seeing as cars and oil will should be considerably less affordable. And I do believe that rail was at its maximum in the depression and WWII, despite the rapid rise of the automobile during the 20s. May well serve as some hope in spite of the despair.

I'm cautiously supportive of them and hope they don't become the new democrats.That said comrade get involved if you feel ready and interested enough! Anarchists and democratic socialists are very active in the city by American standards and there are maoists and trotskyists bobbing about too. Pittsburgh's also the only city I know of that has active anarcho-transhumanists. They've got a free collaborative conference coming up next month if that's your thing. https://www.pleasetrythisathome.netAge wise there's an on and off spokescouncil run by anarchist Pitt Students and there's a radical anarchist feminist group run by students too. I empathize with you being in my early 20s myself (inbetween millennial and zoomer) and when I started organizing myself 3 years ago I felt pretty bummed that most everyone was older than myself. Most leftist activists in the city seem to be in their late 20s and early 30s. If you're a teenager/in your early 20s there's a youth queerpunk open mic at The Big Idea Bookstore and Cafe every month. http://www.queerpgh.com/queer-punk-slam-junk/The Big Idea is a good place to start organizing imo. The store always needs new cooperative members. It's run by experienced and level headed folks that have kept the place running for over a decade and you'll be exposed to all different sorts of ideas and people there. They've got a section for every major political ideology so it's not an echochamber. >>6063

The advantage buses have over tram and light rail is their ability to be in mixed traffic and have a flexible rout layout. If you go for a dedicated rout than buses loose out against trams and light rail, on speed (yes rail is faster), energy energy efficiency, comfort (smooth ride with no swaying), and operating cost (fewer maintenance cycles and longer lifespan of the equipment)

Buses are best suited for the lower capacity transport routs in places that have lower density of people living there, and as gap fillers for temporary peak transport needs.

Oh by the way i contradicted you on the speed issue because if your compare a 3 compartment segment bus (with 2 hinges) with a comparable capacity light rail, the light rail can go over twice as fast.

Now for the ideological reasoning, capitalists don't like light rail, because the labour inputs have a higher value add. Meaning you need to train people more, but they also add more economical value. Capitalists that mostly are short term minded don't like that rail has high initial capital cost and represents long term investments. Socialism does not have it's investment strategies limited to short-termism, but rather can select strategies for investment based on material conditions, and obviously prefers high value-add labour, because that is more economical.

For Areas with sufficient capacity needs, to justify rail construction, that is the preferred mode of transport, and obviously buses would be used for the lower density Areas where rail construction is not justified. There also are "trackless trams" (pic) that combine some of the features of buses and trams which might be worth considering as well.

That's the point, you build the rails with "individualism characteristics", then you make the individual pods so people can experience the inefficiency, then they will let you put normal trains on the rails to fix efficiency. The end result is you got to put rails in the ground, without it getting killed off by dogmatic hyper-individualism, and you get to put trains on it because of it's efficiency. Granted you got some waste because it's trains with extra steps, but your can probably use some of the pods for maintenance and off hour service that has only few passengers. Even if you end up with unused rail-pods at the end it would still be more efficient than what exists currently.

What do you think about trolleybuses?

They run on overhead power like a tram , but they use regular roads (or a special lane on a regular road) so they don't have the infrastructure cost of a tram, which makes them a good choice for lightly populated suburbs where the it would not be worth the cost of installing tram rails or a passenger train line.

Sadly most people in hungary are dumbfucks when it comes to economy Bonus problem is that governments push car travel way too hard (because you can steal more money from road-building than from rail-building). Also a big problem is that the head honchos at MÁV (the national railway company) are just puppets who want to stuff their own walletts and don't care about modernizing or keeping the train system functional.
Biggest joke is that ever since the '80s there were no new lines given to the public (except one, that was more of a politically charged ego-move by Orbán… and one that was planned since the fucking '70s… and is still just half-build)

But on the bright side: here are some love for the little guys on the little rails!
1., The Úttörővasút (Pioneer rail). In the distance in the background there is a TV tower. From 1978, Széchenyi-mountain. I think this model is the Camot 001 (alias "Kis Piri", "Little Red")
2., That beast is from 1988, on the same line, the diesel powered Mk45.
(BTW AFAIK the gauge is 760 mm… or 600 mm. There are only 3 lines with 600 but I can't remember which ones are those. Google it if I tickled your fancy.)
3., One of the oldest narrow-gauge rails still in use, "Zsuzsi" ("Susan"), from Debrecen.

Most of the lines pictured survived the Civil War in the 20s. If youre referring to the Troubles though, that also wasnt the case as most of them were gone before 1960. From what i could find skimming wikipedia, the governments north & south went through "rationalisation" periods where they shut down routes they didnt think were necessary. The south also went through coal shortages in WW2 and that coupled with constant emigration made railways unprofitable.

You can simplify transport as a box being shoved by a Force that is hindered by friction.
And trains have very little friction, because metal wheels on metal Rails don't have a lot of friction losses, which makes trains approximate the optimal case for transport much more so than most other modes of transport.
This is very appealing because it's a System that is very well optimized.

They're very carbon inefficient and bourgeoisie, CEOs do most of the flying as freq. flyers by far and do so at high altitude unable to enjoy the view or being alive. Small planes rely on leaded gasoline which causes ghettos to get lead poisoning as they fly over them.

Unlike trains, you cannot electrify air travel. It will always be reliant on hydrocarbon fuels. That does not mean we need to eschew air travel in the future but it does mean the fuel will have to be produced through capturing carbon from the air to keep air travel carbon-neutral. Luckily the technology for producing carbon neutral synthetic fuel already exists, it is not economical (read profitable) so you won't see capitalists using it.

As an american, nothing would make me happier than to actually be able to go to the beach, or maybe to actually see the other side of the country without going by plane. I've been on a plane before and it sucks - they pack you like sardines in a can and barely give you any time to sleep before you get where you presumably want to go. It sounds positive going fast, but i think people need to go slower in transit because people should be able to enjoy the sights. It's like seeing the sights of your country or the country you're visiting is behind a paywall, reserved for rich people.
In america, poor people have to either drive themselves or carpool. Or go by bus. And there's no way you're going long distance that way.
Also, comfy booths with big windows looking at the countryside. Wouldn't that be nice?

>Unlike trains, you cannot electrify air travel.
Well technically you can, you just need to spam airports everywhere so that the 5min battery life allows you to fly to your destination in 1000 little hops.
Alternatively you could also create satellites that use large solar panels to power a laser that targets a photovoltaic-cells on the plane, to extend the battery life. You do need a bespoke photovoltaic and laser system that are perfectly optimized to maximize efficiency, because you do need lots of power for planes and you have very little capacity for radiators to prevent overheating. Also a laser system that can remote power a large electric passenger plane would probably be pretty close to death-ray territory in terms of power.
So this probably has to wait for when we have overcome capitalism and live in a civilised society, that is able to use a technology without the temptation of using it for imperial domination. But even then it's not very likely to become very wide spread, because trains would probably be 20 times cheaper, and eventually somebody might figure out how to make ocean bridge/tunnels that can connect continent with rails.

I've been thinking about taking the Amtrack across the country, but it looks like a lot of work and it's really expensive. It's cheaper and more practical to just get on a greyhound bus.

I really wish we'd have a hell of a lot more passenger rail because those sleeper cars are really a cool way to travel. Amtrack has them and so does Canadian rail, but it's maybe a thousand bucks a night for a room so it's not affordable really.

That image was already part of the mistake. Letting road vehicles clutter up the streets and compete with light rail was how they argued to get rid of the light rail.

Letting private business own public transport was the first and biggest mistake.

I work with the municipal government and the idiots cannot fathom the idea of a carless society, despite the fact that most people have to use the dreaded and super expensive private collective transport (and most have to walk at least an hour a day on top).

During the day, there are more cars in the city than there are people who live there by like 2x. It's pathological at this point, nobody gives a fuck it seems. There's no such thing as bus lanes and busses are so slow, inaccessible, and expensive, you are better off buying a cheap car.

We also lead the country in bike deaths and car crashes. We're not even the largest city.

The government workers are so fucking dense, I told them they should ban private use cars, one of them asked, "but if I need to go to the hospital, how would I get there?". Like nigga, ask half the people you represent which don't own cars.

I've been watching a newer youtube channel called railways explained. It's really great and in-depth.

Highly recommend it.

I recommend watching two YouTube channels.

1. Simply Railway - Gives current ride alongs with trains and gives you a preview of what to expect for traveling with each train service.

2. Railways Explained - They show the history, organizational, explanation, and other indepth videos based on trains. I love their information on it.
