173 KB,
So I have a question about the origin of the phrase "designated service", which appears to be a term used in FRA standards to refer to locomotives that are temporarily used as B-units (i.e., because the cab equipment doesn't meet FRA regs). The regs say such locomotives need to have "DESIGNATED SERVICE—DO NOT OCCUPY" stenciled on them.

The term is used, and defined, in FRA Parts 223 (dealing with certified glazing) and 229 (general safety regs). Part 223 says that where a cab window is damaged or destroyed, the railroad must put the locomotive...

I don't get it. What's being designated? The service? Designated as what? Or in what way? What does "service" mean in the context? I'm just trying to wrap my mind around why "designated service" means "b-unit".
Is this the same as "trail only" as I've never heard of designated service before this.

Or are all these motors dead in tow?

I think this is one of those things that just never really occurs because the engine will be taken out of service instead and repaired.

Those are the two main reasons why the tour isn't as exiting as before. The riders simply can't put out 7 W/kg for entire climbs.

The traditionalism because Sky rides to win. As a 9 man team with a single objective. None of the other teams challenge Sky as an entire team but they have 1 or 2 guys with the Sky train on climbs and then everyone complains how it's impossible to attack Sky when they need to drop 5 guys before the GC rider is alone.

Watch a discipline that actually requires skill instead of just fitness.
Sagan really is a refreshment to the sport, so unpredictable...just look at his Richmond ride, risked everthing and won by 3s. He remindes me of Tom Dwan in poker, I hope those triathleete faggots will loose.

cant blame you for the impression though, but cycling is very different than fitness oriented triathlone and other autist disciplines.

Honestly I'd be too afraid to ride one in today's world. I work for a freight railroad and just the other day we heard about an Amtrak crashing into a barricade made on the tracks by some drunk fuckheads on a 4 wheeler. It's almost a guarantee in America that some degenerate is going to sabotage the rails just to watch it crash. We are used to freight railroads and most people don't even think about them, but give them something nice, shiny, fast and new and they'll want to fuck with it.
earmark a trillion or so and decades later you might get a 40 mile line which is overpriced and under 80mph.

if land rights ever get sorted out.
A nationwide one? Can't be done.

Separate ones for a handful of megaregions? State + federal buy in and/or infrastructure bank.

Yeah, it's easier since the wheels are designed with streets and shit in mind.
You're not doing any tricks or anything, but it could be fun.
>would commuting via a longboard be efficient?
Sorta? Not nearly as efficient as a bike. but if you're really wanting a long board there's really no reason it wouldn't work. I mean as long as it's not too long
Longboards are easier to bomb down hills on but if it's flat you won't be really comfortable on either until you're comfortable on both. They're better for crappy roads but they're cumbersome as fuck in comparison so not really suited to commuting imo. A skateboard is no thing to bring into a shop or strap to a backpack but a longboard is a heavy large bitch.

Make sure you wear hi-vis otherwise a cager, not making sure he doesn't run someone over, might kill you.

But if he does, remember to wear a helmet so he might just retard you for life.

For today's 4.5 hour ride I took 2 bottles, plus the equivalent of 3 more in my trunk bag and still had to fill a bottle up in the park on the way home. The first 2 miles of a gravel road I went down was nasty. There was a dirt dump and numerous semis passing kicking up huge plumes of dust. A dirt road I went down didn't have much traffic since the last rain, so the surface was dry and cracked. That stuff crumbles when riding over it and eats a lot of speed.
