I feel as though Siemens is trying to entice Amtrak by having almost 200 avaliable units, but Amtrak a) doesn't have the funding, and b) doesn't plan on replacing their current diesels until 2024. Which means that the Genesis series will be about thirty years old by the time they're replaced.
>>913371 >Chicks dig guys with cargo bikes. For the benefit of the other readers of /n/ who may have difficulty understanding OP's meaning, allow me to translate; >I got a cargo bike and I was riding it and some random girl on the street that I don't know smiled at me (reason: unknown) to which I mumbed "Y-y-y-you t-t-too" and just kept pedaling, so now in my own mind I think girls like guys on cargo bikes.

I heard the EPA refused to issue new water permits due to pollution. The only way to get a water permit was to destroy an older building and take that permit. That's why so much of Houston looks like a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Is this true?
If you look at Kanto, the rolling stock used by JR East is all new. There's E233-0 on the Chuo Line, E233-1000 on Keihin-Tohoku, E233-3000 on the Tokaido and Tohoku Lines, Joban Line has various new stock (like E531), the new E129 series is starting to replace rural 115 and 211 series trains (like in Niigata), the E235 just rolled out on the Yamanote Line, Nambu Line got new E233 series trains, there are new trains for the limited express services (E259, E353).
But in Osaka and Kyoto, all the trains are *old*. The Osaka Loop Line still uses 103 and 201 series trains... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The new interiors look like something you'd find used as propaganda in a communist shit hole like Belarus or the DPRK. "New" veneer on something that is obviously still old and shitty. I prefer the old interior. There was nothing particularly wrong with it other than being old, and at least it's being honest.
Now, without going too off topic, allow me to explain what I want, know, and wish to know. And there will be a tl;dr I promise. Currently I am a 25 y/o War vet who was discharged from the military for marijuana use/Medically Disabled (went through a lot of dark periods after deployment). I have bad credit, no job (worth mentioning), and no land. Most of my close family is either deceased or out of state. I have no kids, pets, and am divorced. I make most of my living income off of VA disability (can only do office jobs, but can't find one). I need something new. My life,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I chose it because I think I would enjoy the work ethic, group mentality, structure, and culture (always been a electronic/video game addict. Techy devices and such that may just be a waste of money are my favorite things to discover. I enjoy the compact living spaces and subsequently shorter travel distances to get to anything. i enjoy the idea of city lights, lighted streets and sidewalks to navigate at 3am when I need something late. On top of that, I feel safer in their economy than I do here (leave this one be, it's not a political debate). I want to do it, I want... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>913044 I don't think that taking Japanese courses in college will prove too useful to be honest. When I was in school I took some introductory courses but it became apparent pretty quickly that teaching it to yourself would be just as effective. Perhaps the only real benefit to being in a class was that there were other people with whom I could actually try to converse with in Japanese, but considering the nature of college it isn't difficult to find someone to talk to (it's as simple as going to a language club)...

Quite a spectacle, witness the landing of the Russian cargo plane, the Ilyushin Il-76TD, in slow motion. Although originally designed to be used by the Russian army, its use is fairly common for various companies airfreight, due to its robustness and low maintenance costs.
I have no experience with any of the things you've mentioned. But I do have experience in not following my dreams. Anon, if your dream is to drive trucks for thousands upon thousands of kilometers or miles, and to be a sweaty cabin monkey, you chase that dream! Shaq once said, "I'm not a sandwich I'm a hero on a low carb diet." Chase that sandwich anon. Eat it and savor it because once it's your time to die. Shaq will take your place.

>>912648 Really dumb. People aren't buying into the "self-driving car" thing, so why would they hop into an AAV? A car is one thing; if the computer driving the thing has a brain fart the driver can take over, this thing has no flight controls. Even if it did, roughly 1/2 of 1% of the American population is a pilot of any stripes, so the other 99.5% would be useless in the event of an emergency. There's a reason the military isn't letting optionally-piloted aircraft run any sort of troop transport or... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

This is called EHang 184. It flies for twenty-something minutes, using (presumably) electric motors. Besides flying autonomously, it's also going to be constantly connected to a control center that would be able help if something goes wrong.
Any widespread use of this machine in first-world countries would have to wait for the innovations that are stalling... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Icon of Amtrak, staple of freight railroads, and bane of furfags everywhere. What's not to love?
I've actually had the privilege of riding on a train pulled by one of these industrial giants, going down the line, passing stopped highway traffic, thinking to myself, "OUT OF THE WAY FUCKERS, CAUSE WE'RE A GODDAMN TRAIN!"
