I stumbled upon this series from BBC about traveling by rail across Britain using an old Victorian Era guidebook. It's kind of neat.

They probably were working on Ukraine-related stories, thought how big of a "train wreck" this whole thing is, and that thought reminded them of the current state of the UK's railways.

There is a nugget of truth in this - the DFT does have to approve acquisition of new rolling stock, but it's completely moot because none of these operators are asking for them.

Heck, they were in such a hurry to scrap all the stock they got for pennies from BR that there's now a rolling stock shortage despite having had a decade of huge purchases of new stock!

>> No.116444

The problem isn't with the DfT approving it, as we saw from Virgin spending their own money on the Pendos. TOCs specifically complain that DfT won't buy the stock, implying that they won't spend their own money on it, which I thought was part of the point of privatising them in the first place.

I take a long lunch Fridays for foam related reasons. After the Eagle departed, I noticed the signal went from red to blinking yellow, so I started north to see what freight might be found. I spotted lights leaving the elevator and returned to town to wait it out. The train stopped short of the crossing, and I met one of Uncle Pete's nephews, who was driving by and concerned for my safety and/or mental state. He understood immediately why I had a video camera sitting on top of my car and another in my hand. I would have talked more, but the engine bell sounded. He returned to his vehicle and I returned to taking pictures. I am thankful for these folks who care and keep the trains running (if not always on time).

Why didn't monorails ever take off in America (or anywhere else, really)?

I mean, monorail = one rail. You save a bunch of money on not laying down two steel rails for your trackbed. Also less surface to grade, can place track in more difficult environments, etc.

Pic related, monorail that ran near Death Valley in the 1920s, transported epsom salts 28 miles to the railroad at Trona.

Monorails are great for industrial applications (like OP) or agricultural (like the banana monorails in Ecuador or the cherry monorails in Japan). Maybe as a short-distance or closed-loop attraction. But not for large-scale transportation. No matter how much voters in Seattle may think so.

Reminds me of this one time...
There was this empty grain train, about 125 covered hoppers, 2 SD40's and a Paducah geep, and the engineer comes hauling up to a red over red over red, using only the loco brakes... compressing every inch of slack in the whole train. That, alone, sounded like rolling thunder, but it gets better. When he finally got a clear board, he made a jackrabbit start, trying to get up as much speed as possible in 125 feet. Maybe he really hated the rear-end crew (this was back when cabooses were used), because the whiplash from going 0-20? mph instantly must've been fierce. But the SOUND! Could probably hear it twenty miles away.
