Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hi Kwackers, London of course also had electric Trolley Buses. In fact they turn up in some very odd places? In the Liverpool based film "Violent Playground", Stanley Baker, a young David McCallum, a school involved wasn't actually in Liverpool, the giveaway was the sight of a Trolley Bus ...

Re: ** The Brexit Thread ** - 'Brexit Means Brexit'

Hi there, And when a stupid idiot glued to the phone steps in front of a cyclist the cyclist gets hammed!
Loads of witnesses state she didn't look and the cyclist tried to avoid the impact, but some idiot Judge gives her damages & costs? Insanity reigns!

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hello again, The stupid switch over to diesels in public transport in cities started way back. In Liverpool back in 1949, the public transport fleet was almost totally tram based, work fine. But sadly there was a large fire at the main tram depot which took out over 60 trams. Offers poured in from a...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Morning Playmates :), One simple thing would make it possible to square the circle? Stop thinking about personal transport modules owned by the individual, think collective as Vorpal has already said. As some others have also said the railways should not be in the pockets of the greedy, think invest...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hi Reohn2, Reading you post makes me wonder if I'm a Closet Marxist? But many of us former SDP members have no truck with the mess that we find ourselves in, not of our making! The inappropriate use of tools ruins any job and transportation should be viewed in the same light? "Lifestyle" m...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hi Reohn2, The "Step Change" that I can envisage for our cities is for people to do just that - WALK! The marrow bone coach is certainly appropriate in most places such as London, Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds et al. Of course rural areas will still need individual transport modules, no qu...

Re: Apologies for my rudeness

Hi again Skyhawk, You certainly haven't upset or offended me, far from it!
I get the odd kicking for my sloppy style, but then again I'm only an amateur pedant, plenty of card carrying ones here!.

Re: The only problem with Pinhead locks

Hi Skyhawk, Fully understand your problem, surprised that others had an issue, as dad is often the donkey! As I have just pointed out in the Hydrogen Car thread I though that I was carrying the key for the lock I used today, sadly the grey sponge let me down. But at least that lock won't trouble me ...

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hi all, The car issue will soon be over if Mayor of London has his way? Saw something interesting from his big plan, car parks at railway station will be taken over for housing development sites! Don't ask for citation as my head hurts, had a bad morning? Went for a trundle on the trike locked it to...

Re: Apologies for my rudeness

Hi Skyhawk :D , To quote john Wayne in one of his films, think it was "She wore a yellow ribbon", "Never apologise, sign of weakness"!
I don't ascribe to that view, but the forum vultures do. :lol: :lol: :lol:

HI Guys & Gals, Correct me if I'm wrong, which I know you will, but isn't the Peoples Republic of China Maoist? You know the chap author of that "Little Red Book"?

Re: Hydrogen Vehicles

Hello again, It seems to have passed people by that the sheer size of the infrastructure requirements of individual electric cars is also a problem. But of course the answer must surely be plenty of good quality Public Transport! But that would require a sea change in public attitude, becoming less ...
