Amie et ami Twittos il faudrait que tu comprennes, parmi tant d’autres choses, que le mot « vacances » revêt une importance toute particulière quand on est #Handicapé. 1/n
Comme de nombreux autres éléments, nous n’y avons quasiment pas accès. Les facteurs expliquant cela sont nombreux et je commence ce #Thread sans vraiment savoir par quel bout le prendre. 2/n
Ceux qui, parmi les personnes #Handicapées, ont la chance de pouvoir profiter d’un séjour en dehors de chez eux pendant une période de congés se voient généralement pris en charge par une personne valide de leur entourage : parent, moitié, etc. 3/n

Mon gros #CoupDeGueule du moment : aidez-nous à prendre le #train, et aux tarifs justes❗#Thread explicatif sur le parcours du combattant pour acheter un billet de train chez @GroupeSNCF. L'exemple d'un trajet entre @villedelyon et @VilleBriancon pour 1 adulte et 2 enfants 🤯⤵️
Le trajet traverse 2 régions qui appliquent des tarifications spécifiques. Ils sont parfois avantageux mais ne s'appliquent que si le trajet est à 100% sur la région concernée. Si vous demandez le trajet en 1 seul bloc, la tarification promo disparaît et vous payez plein tarif 😱
Ensuite, il n'est pas possible de forcer le moteur de recherche à proposer un #TER entre Lyon et Valence, bien moins cher. @SNCFConnect, @SNCFTERAURA et même @trainline_fr proposent toujours du @TGVINOUI ce qui bride fortement la recherche, voire empêche de voir certains trajets.

Airbus a réussi à faire voler pendant trois heures un avion sans carburant fossile. Jusqu'à présent, les essais avaient porté sur des mélanges de kérosène et de carburants non fossiles.

Ce succès rend-il pour autant l'aviation durable ?

Tout d'abord, cette annonce est une bonne nouvelle car même dans 20 ou 30 ans, on aura encore besoin d'avions (défense, transport longue distance...) donc si on veut atteindre la neutralité carbone, ceux-ci devront voler avec autre chose que des carburants fossiles.

Cependant, le gisement de ces carburants (agrocarburants, carburants issus d'huiles usagées, de graisses animales voire plus tard peut-être électrocarburants produits à partir d'hydrogène électrolytique...) est limité, surtout si on veut qu'il soit véritablement "durable".

This 12(!) car #train arrived at #budapestnyugati from #záhony at the #Ukrainian #border this afternoon, it was a special train for the #Ukrainianrefugees fleeing the #WARINUKRAINE

And I have to say that I am positively surprised by how much help is happening in Eastern Europe!
And to put it in context, the "normal" train back to Zahony had 5 cars...
This is at the #keleti station in Budapest, normally this hall is completely empty, now it full with stands and people who #HelpUkrainianRefugees

China unveils 600 kph/370 mph High Speed Superfast #maglevtrain prototype makes public #debut, "Fastest Ground #Vehicle Globally": Report
Using electro-magnetic force, #maglev #TRAIN "levitates" above track & no contact between body and rail.
#Thread #tech #technology #Transport
China has been using maglev technology for almost 2 decades on very limited scale. Maglev train could go from Shanghai to #Beijing in 2.5 hours, versus 5.5 hours by high-speed rail. Self-developed by China and manufactured in coastal city of #Qingdao. @CRRC_global new model.
Cutting-edge #scientific and technological achievement in field of #railway transit in world. Train uses electromagnets to suspend itself above rails, and because there's no friction from contact with rail lines, train can run quietly and smoothly. Unveiled in glittery ceremony.

రైలు (#Train) అనగా ఒకదాని వెనుక ఒకటి తగిలించబడిన బోగీలతో పట్టాల మీద ప్రయాణిస్తూ, ప్రయాణీకులను లేదా సరుకులను ఒకచోటు నుంచి మరొక చోటుకి చేరవేసే ఒక రవాణా సాధనం. దీనిని గ్రాంథిక భాషలో ధూమశకటం అని కూడా అంటారు. ఈ రైళ్ళు పోయే మార్గమును రైలు మార్గము అంటారు. Image
ఈ రైళ్ళు పోయే మార్గమును రైలు మార్గము అంటారు. మొట్టమొదట ఆవిరి యంత్రాన్ని స్కాట్లాండు దేశానికి చెందిన జేమ్స్ వాట్ (James Watt) అనే శాస్త్రవేత్త పరిశోధనలు చేస్తూ "గ్లాస్ గో(Glasgow)" విశ్వవిద్యాలయంలో 1776లో కనుగొన్నాడు. Image
దీన్ని ఆధారంగా చేసుకొని అనేక మంది శాస్త్రవేత్తల కృషి ఫలితంగా రైలు ఇంజను, రైలు మార్గములు రూపొందించబడినవి. మొదట్లో దీనిని వస్తువులను చేరవేయడానికి మాత్రమే వాడేవారు. ఆ తర్వాత ప్రయాణీకులను చేరవేయడానికి కూడా ఉపయోగించడం మొదలు పెట్టారు. అప్పటి నుంచి రవాణా సాధనంగా ఇది బాగా ఉపయోగపడింది. Image

We spend billions per year on the #Leadership industry.
But uh, ahem, er … what exactly are we getting out of it, especially at this moment? A thread --- >
No one has exact figures on the “size” of the global leadership industry, or leadership development market, or whatever you prefer to call it. I have seen numbers from $14B to $24B to $366B (wow) back down to $44B. I honestly don’t think people know what is even involved in these
big numbers. I would guess we are talking mostly about books, speeches (speaker fees?), training modules, training programs, and the like. I’d speculate (but don’t know) that a huge chunk of that is book publishing. A book on every leadership angle has seemingly been written.

#Italy #Switzerland #Train #Borders #Coronavirus

The railway companies in Switzerland and Italy are temporarily suspending cross-border traffic.
As of December 10, 2020, there will be no more trains of the Swiss Railways SBB and Trenitalia across the border for an indefinite period, the SBB announced on Tuesday. "The decision is based on a decree of the Italian government," it said.
Italy requires controls that Switzerland cannot guarantee, said a SBB spokeswoman on request, including temperature measurement and the submission of a negative corona test.

#Germany #Wolfsburg #Niedersachsen #Train #attack

A train attendant suffered a heart attack after an attack in an Intercity train near Wolfsburg and had to be reanimated. A traveler without a ticket attacked the conductor and punched him in the chest, the police said.
The 45-year-old train attendant, who suffered from a previous illness, collapsed with a heart attack. The Intercity from Berlin made an unscheduled stop in Wolfsburg, and police officers put the suspect in the train station.
The 45-year-old felt discriminated as a Turk, he told the police. Because he claimed to be an official of the State Criminal Police Office, another investigation was initiated against him for abuse of professional titles.

#Germany #Köln #NRW #Bomb #Train

During the night, the police secured a suspicious object in a parked regional train in a train depot in Cologne-Deutz. According to information, it should have been a self-made bomb. A cleaner had discovered the explosive device hidden in a box.
The alerted Federal Police secured the site over a large area, explosive dogs struck and the box was examined with X-ray machines. Specialists defused the bomb at the site. The explosive device reportedly contained a fuse, fireworks, black powder bullets, nails and screws.
It is unclear whether it is an attempted terrorist attack or a planned blackmail. It is unclear when the box was deposited on the train that traveled from Gummersbach to Cologne after the evacuation. The police are therefore also looking for witnesses.

Big Boost for #Tourism.
The toursim potential of J&K is immense. There was no major national or global player in tourism sector earlier. Investment in tourist infrastructure like hotels will increase tourist arrivals.

I just got on the @rzd_official No. 2 train from #moscow to #vladivostok. This #transsiberian route is over 9200km, the longest single train ride in the world. It will take 6 days and change in one direction. THREAD (I’ll add throughout the journey): Image
Tonight we will stop in Vladimir in the night and be in Nizhny Novgorod on the Volga before sunrise. My coupe while not fancy is certainly comfortable. We are passing through the Moscow suburbs. It’s midnight. That’s a full commuter train we just whizzed by. Image
This is my coupe. There is a mini TV (peak Russia) and a plug to charge phones in the hallway. Haven’t dared ask the shower question yet as not all trains have them. The lady in charge of our “wagon” is very nice and will go all the way to Vladivostok (and back!). Shared WCs. Image

Aujourd'hui, petit thread sur l'après guerre sur l’électrification, on va voir la poursuite des électrifications en 1500V et le retour du courant alternatif !
Au Progamme, Paris-Lyon, Höllental et Savoie
#SNCF #Train #Retrotech #AnecdoteFerro #electrique
Commençons par l’électrification 1500V, on a d'abord une extension du 1500V entre Sète et Nîmes, ainsi qu'une partie de la grande ceinture sud autour de Paris, afin de permettre les interconnexion entre les gares parisiennes déjà électrifiés.
La SNCF reçoit aussi quelque protos pour tester des nouveaux modèle, notamment une BBB 6002 en 1948, sensée moins fatiguer la voie avec ses 3 boggies de 2 essieux. C'est une configuration assez rare en France, bien plus courante en Italie ou au Japon par exemple ^^

Aujourd'hui, un thread vapeur et guerre !
On va en effet parler des locomotives à vapeur dont le sort est liées aux guerres mondiales. Et avec 2 guerres, y'en a eu pas mal !

#Train #SNCF #Histoire #AnecdoteFerro #RetroTech
Mais avant voyons un peu les bases ! La locomotive à vapeur étant une chaudière monté sur un châssis, ça reste plutôt lourd donc on a pas mal d'essieux pour supporter le poids de la dite chaudière. Et certaines roues sont entrainées par un système de piston/ bielles / manivelle
Pour nommer une locomotive, sous la SNCF, on compte le nombre d'essieux. Le Nombre d'essieux avant porteur (non moteur), les essieux moteur, ainsi que le nombre d'essieux porteur arrière. On rajoute aussi une lettre derrière pour les diff. loco avec le même nombre d'essieux

ce soir, je vous propose un thread "annexe" sur l'électrification, avec l’électrification de la banlieue du réseau de l'ETAT. On va donc parler de 3eme Rail et Rames Standard.
#SNCF #Train #Retrotech #AnecdoteFerro #electrique #Transilien #RER
Par contre avant de nous y plonger, va falloir que je parle de quelques lignes aujourd'hui disparues. Par exemple, la ligne reliant la gare de saint germain "château" à celle de saint germain "ceinture". Une voie navette, fermée en 1936, et disparue des cartes depuis.
Mais qui aura servit à l'OUEST à tester la traction électrique entre 1895 et 1899 (en 400V Continu par 3eme rail). Elle fut ouverte en 1882.
Sur la photo de dessous, c'est le tunnel à gauche qui partait vers cette ancienne ligne.
