    First Bus Introduce Social Distancing

    That sounds like Leeds on a normal day except the buses are a bit closer than an hour apart. Even so it will be utter chaos if they reduce capacity by that much and expect everyone back in the office

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    It's something like two minutes for a full air change on an aircraft - I cannot see that a train aircon will be that good. Also the air inside the aircraft cabin can be refreshed with outside air at a somewhat similar rate at a small increase in fuel consumption. I cannot see any train aircon...

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    Sadly there is a total lack of commonsense in palce - people are apparantly already not even considering social distanceing in places like supermarkets where it is needed. If you drop it in places like resteraunts then it'll only get worse in other places. We are also back to the issue of just...

    Problem of Carrying a 18 m long Rail

    Thanks for that, most useful. I'm surprised that the rail isn't harder than that on the running surface though although I suppose there is a lot more rail to wear than there is tyre on the wheels.

    Leeds - bit of railway archeaology

    I live right in the middle of that yes - we know all about T&N and their Federal successors sadly :( Ummm - thats not a bad suggestion either - there used to be a town gas works nearby and it could well be a gas pipe I suppose.

    YOU can stop being ableist. It's entirely your choice to though.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    OK once more - making it out that somehow it's my issue to come up with solutions doesn't help. At all. I'm pointing out the inherent abelism that some posters on here are adopting. Thats perfectly reasonable to do. The solution is to stop being abelist but apparantly thats beyond the...

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    So what do you want to do - open the floodgates again and kill off possibly a half million people? There are no easy options I'm afraid on this one. We need to make money as a country but we need to stay safe. Thats a balancing act and if we slip it's a long way down

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    You would hope so wouldnt you although I'm not sure Bojo is the best we have to manage this - however that is who we have. At least it's not Trump..... Sadly though as typified by a poster or two on here there are is a small subset of society that thinks otherwise. I've ahd comments ranged from...

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    No. At the moment it is entirely necessary sadly. Hopefully there will be a situation soon when it can be less strict that it is.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    Very good nedchester. You are back to requiring me to solve the problem and if I can't then I have to accept it. I'm not going to discuss this with you further until you sort out and apologise for your appaling abelism.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    No of course they are not.... Except they are. I'm just gagging to sacrifice my liberty, career, and everything just so others can enjoy it.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    and so the abelism keeps on rolling... Like it or not that many people are not just going to accept society binning them off. You might find they are needed as well to run stuff.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    And so we are back to telling the vulnerable they are an inconvenience and they should get out of everyones way. Charming...

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    Really? Think you might find that would be blatantly illegal if you tried. Also I note that I never said we couldn't go back to some normal. Thats been spun up from whole cloth by people wanting to apologise for their conduct on here.

    Problem of Carrying a 18 m long Rail

    I'm sorry but thats simply not correct. A cantilever which is what this is at the end of the day is a common engineered structure and they take many millions of load and unload cycles without issues. Whilst rail may be quite hard and not especially compliant, 4 meters stuck out the back of a...

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    You think I don't realise this? I'm currently working in that field providing the necessary back end IT infrastructure to stop the NHS from collapsing logistically. I've a fair appreciation of how it works.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    I have. The proposition is that people should not be discriminatory or abelist. Simply then pushing it back on to me and saying Im not helping for point this out is perpetuating the problem. If we can make efforts to allow less mobile people to travel then we can make allowances for those who...

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    [ No I find your viewpoint abelist that's all. It seems it's easier to just tell the vlunerable to stay home because it's their issue and not make any accomodation at all for them. Thanks.
