    Reasonable Transit Pitches

    I know that RL cars are required to do a radius of 250ft in revenue vs 440ft for the OL, but I can't find data on the BL. It would need a 386 ft radius turn to do it, and at least one building torn down

    I understand that the T cars suspensions adjust to account for the weight of the passengers. Can this height be reset on the fly? Could the BL feed into the OL and a button pushed to raise it 4in?

    So, does each married pair use it's third rail shoe or does one shoe draw power for the whole train, and if it does, could two shoes be on at the same time?

    Who's safety report? It is a classic response of bureaucrats to claim that oversight requirements are keeping them from doing their "real" jobs.
