Rampies, most of the time, are no joke. You'll get the few that don't care about their job, and the few that like to steal from the passengers. But that usually goes with the airlines giving work to the lowest bidder. Full-time company rampies do all sorts of crazy math, precision positioning, and what amounts to IRL Tetris.

You're in the shop. It doesn't run. Two cabs, one at each end. Work order reads "Fix the front throttle."

Stenciling on a letter F beforehand could save a lot of head-scratching, here. Per Title 49, Subtitle B, Chapter II, Part 229, Subpart A, Section 229.11 is there because 1) Front isn't always obvious, and 2) is sometimes just the opposite of what you'd expect.

I think the real issue is when a unit is set up for long-hood-forward operation (>>112566), is the long hood still the ass end?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vC-dmKHiCnY -- How it took 198 Tauruses to move one German Class 101 loco.

>> No.112936  

At first I thought model was weak--87 of them equals 1 real one, right? But then I realized the prototype is actually 87^3 times bigger, which makes the model about 3325 times more powerful! Well, maybe not... it wasn't a tug-o-war; the real thing could walk off with all 198 models without noticing anything. I wonder how many models it would take to equal the tractive effort of the real thing?

If I got the numbers right, you need about half a million of the little ones. One full-size Billboard delivers an effort of some 300,000 Newtons as per the 'Pedia, and I think the MiWuLa team's instrument showed a model putting in 0.6 Newtons.

Have a cookie.
87 cubed comes to 658,503, so it turns out that, proportionately, the model is more powerful by about 24%.

No worries. You're not the only one to misread things. One of my favourite words, 'bloonies' came to be when I inadvertently portmanteaued 'bloody loonies'.

I liked their concept of switching the empty battery for a full one and charging it externally.

Today's trains mostly use fixed batteries and charge while the vehicle has to wait.
It's probably more automatic and cheaper than having workers carry around batteries, but wouldn't the switching them offer more actual operating time?

Actual operation time doesn't really matter on the line where the E301 is used: http://www.jreast-timetable.jp/1404/timetable/tt0513/0513010.html Less than one train per hour doesn't really require speed efficiency.
