Even if Russia is now playing tit-for-tat, I still think confiscating Russian oligarch property is the right call. Hypocrisy or no, in practical terms this war has to be made into a huge step backward for everyone within even a whiff of power in Russia (just like it is for the average Russian who ha...Jump to post

I don't think the descriptions in the forum listings have been changed in some time. It still says we can discuss politics in Non-Aviation, for instance.Jump to post

Back to baseball, its looks like the A's are looking at a new site in Las Vegas, as site #1 looks to be falling through.

Teams that go on amazing early regular season runs like the Rays are on now have a strong tendency to falter in the postseason, sadly. I've been upset at the Dodgers for seemingly cheaping out all offseason, but it doesn't actually appear to have hurt them that much yet. I guess the other big questi...Jump to post
A very good question. As you face a switch (or turnout), you have two routes: straight ahead (normal), or one that curves to one side or the other (diverging). On Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, they have installed switches where trains can take the diverging route at speeds of up to 80 mph. Supposedl...Jump to post

Judging by what American railroads have been buying in the last few years, it's tractive effort, not power output, that's seen as the bottleneck. You even see some railroads occasionally using road slugs (i.e. a diesel-electric locomotive has the diesel engine removed and swapped for ballast, it's h...Jump to post
Dunno if I'll check out the new offsite, but I'm leaning towards probably not. In my prior experience, having a common interest besides politics keeps the political discussions more stable.

About 25 years ago, I was coming home from work in Detroit. It was the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend and it was a nice, sunny day. I had my window down and stereo on, when I heard a rumbling noise.

Yes, it is sad to see the last of the DC-10/MD-10's gone from FedEx and other operators, but the reality is that these planes are worn out, parts likely becoming scarce, declining support from Boeing, their pilots and mechanics retiring out and replaced by more fuel efficient models. Saves on cater...Jump to post

This is news to me. Much appreciate you both pointing that out. The last time I went to the Pima A&S Museum was 10+ years ago, so I am due for a visit.

Good, powerful electric locomotives are readily available. Now, power plants, yes, you'd need some more of those. However, the power consumption would be a drop in the bucket compared to CA in total.

I believe the Caltrain commuter service, running on the old Southern Pacific tracks from San Jose up the peninsula to San Francisco, is in the process of electrifying. Drop in the bucket I suppose, but worth at least mentioning.Jump to post
