Not surprising it's more likely to spread in winter given the number of houses with ducted heating these days. Hard to create negative pressure rooms. One argument against home quarantine.

A 5-car walk-through design would have about the same capacity as 2 x 3-car. As 130 km/h will be the max speed, 4 powered cars should be sufficient.

Still, one shouldn't look a gift horse in the mo ...

Go Iceland!

Population less than 400,000. Doses administered in Australia 11,000,000 (or 27 x 400,000).


Don’t mention the GFC.

Wasn’t the pantograph moved to the rear of the later Hitachi M cars to provide greater distance between the centre units when running in 6-car M-T-M-M-T-M configuration?

On the other side of the coin. Victoria already has 820 deaths. If the UK and US measures had been adopted here, pro rata for size of population, the death toll would be around 50,000. Doing nothing a ...
