Pretty sure most of the trains have just been nationalised to prevent collapse Pet lover may the fur be with you shirt. At least in Scotland. Why all this talk of electric why not use what we have now and improve on like use hydrogen being running on trains in Europe. In all fairness I’m a petrol head a heart. Dosnt matter how quick, how efficient they make them I will never be drawn to them. I’ve grown up in and around cars and for me it’s what makes a car a car. Too me having to drag an extension lead out to plug my car in itsnt something I ever look forward to. Only time I take an extension lead to my car is if I’m cleaning it.
Hydrogen was a big thing at one stage but that all out the window it seems Pet lover may the fur be with you shirt. They have made the smallest engines so much more powerful and also cleaner that some of them actually are clean than some EV This work from home thing isn’t for everyone. I’m in the manufacturing industry so you can’t really build road equipment sitting on the couch eating potato chips. I have to drive to work as well. I live half and hour from work and it isn’t feasible with my pay to buy a home, let alone find a home, within a half mile of my work. People need to realize not everyone has access to public transport and such. I’ll keep driving my car, thank you.
