We talked a lot about trains over the years but the important question is.. do you like planes too?

Someone find that old shoop of a locomotive merged with an airplane. I don't think I have it anymore.

What would be the consequences of a planetrain with the exhaust feeding into the successive engines?

Elsewhere, there is this bonkers concept.

Still waiting for Glasgow Airport Rail Link. Latest idea is to build it as a tram-train, avoiding building an expensive heavy rail line over a motorway. Personally I think a better idea would be to use the old Paisley & Renfrew Railway, but that would mean passengers from the south-west would have to change trains at Hillington West rather than Paisley Gilmour Street.

Ah, "Glasgow" Prestwick Airport. Only 30 miles down the M77 and 40 minutes away on the fast train.

> the exhaust feeding into the successive engines

There's a cute little romantic comedy where that happens, it's called Human Centipede.

Yes, most folk in Ayrshire didn't like the name change: "We're not Glasgow!"

I've been waiting more than a month for someone to ask about automobiles and make the obvious joke but apparently it's not going to happen.

Sometimes happens on Sundays, when trains have four wheels, rubber tyres and 60 mph speed limiters.

I'm really hoping Soyuz-5 will be something actually practical. II gen Soyuz is great but it already depleted its potential. S-5 shall be convertible into heavy and superheavy carriers and very well might get reusable stages.

I'll be missing the 1st stage booster separation.

Still, supposedly 1 engine is more economical than 5 and 1 stage is easier to fly back home.
