How dedicated to pizza is Pizza Hut?

Umm not so much now. With virtually all dine in  venues gone, and a declining delivery area I'd say they are not as dedicated Smile

( ie to me not a good example, but I know someone in the pizza industry )

I've noticed it's been a week now, and Dallas has yet to return and justify an objective for having such an anti-ARTC sentiment?
"Maikha"


If you look at their profile, Dallas has been here since 2006 (one only post back then in an MSTS forum), and only really got going in 2009.  Since then all 20 posts have been about the Cowra area.  As you probably appreciate, there have been very few positives, and plenty of unfulfilled promises for Cowra denizens with an interest in rail activity, going back decades.  ARTC are just the latest in a long line of organisations that have failed to deliver for someone like Dallas.

So he pokes some fun (or links to someone poking some fun) at a pro-road sign on a railway truck, and you all accuse him of heresy against ARTC?  I've done more ARTC bashing in this thread than Dallas has, and will continue to do so until they either live up to their own hype, or admit to being a bunch of cheapskate usurpers who put more effort into press releases than actual work.  

I don't think it's right or proper to expect a light weight, single issue poster to apologise or explain for a perceived lack of love for a heartless corporation.  That you seem to demand such is disappointing.  You know what it's like to be singled out online, it would be a shame if you in turn took to bullying others.

But Fieldshunt isn't it The government of the day that tell ARTC what to do- and not vica-versa- If you wanted to have a go at anyone- My suggestion would be the Labour brats of n.s.w politics

I tend to agree with FieldShunt74.

I'd be more pro ARTC than most on RP and I wasn't upset by the post. I'd already seen the clipping elsewhere and if you read beyond the headline and the first paragraph or two it is actually a reasonably positive article for ARTC. Most local rags with an axe to grind rarely give an ARTC spokesman that much column space.

The way I see it, the article was just pointing out the irony of an ARTC truck having the ATA propaganda on it.

Ironic - ARTC is one rail body that openly publicises the fact that it is in the business of replacing trucks with trains and does something to grow rail freight.  Rolling Eyes

It seems to me that some people think that all use of trucks is bad and everything should be on rail. Trucks are a necessity in the real world.

Unless it is possible to service every industry with point-to-point rail, it is a fantasty to argue that 'trucks are bad and rail is good' as the more foaming element seems to do.

It is true that a very small number of lost souls on the rail side of the equation think this.

Of which there can be no denying.

Which to any sane person is bleedin' obvious.

Unfortunately trucking industry lobbyists often make out that such statements are the prevailing view of the rail industry in order to undermine rail lobbying efforts. This despite the fact that I have never heard anyone of influence from the rail industry suggest that we cannot live without trucks.
