The Freedom Ship
OK, this one's pretty weird. I read about it on Blickpunk Strassenbahn and thought it would be kind of cool to check out. BS called it a Metro on a ship. The people involved with the project are calling it a tram. I have no images yet but I'm still working on it.
Emails about the project I've received:
> On the ship trams, I don't know of the details. The trains pictured in Popular Mechanics looked a bit oversized for the application. I > may be on the project as an engineer. If so, I am interested in working on the rail system, among other things.
> Later, Mike Doty
> Thank you for your interest in Freedom Ship.
> I did a quick check of your web site and it seems that Freedom Ship's approach to transporting people would be an interesting addition > to your site.
> The following information is from our newly redesigned
>From our "Onboard Living" page
> People Movement
> Because of the ship's size, a system of free (at least to residents), electric-powered trams will operate 24 hours a
> day, moving people along the length of the ship. Paths will be set aside for 2- or 3-wheel bicycles, for residents' use.
> More details will be available as the project moves closer to completion.
> You are invited to join the discussion section of our site. Your experience in people moving would be a welcomed addition.
