Quote from: perttime on October 01, 2022, 11:00:35 PMA thought: What about vehicles that do not actually carry the cargo but enable the cargo carriers to reach their destination efficiently - or at all? Icebreakers, snow ploughs, vehicles to cut a track through the jungle?




Why does the guy on the back with a flamethrower look like a really bad idea? You know someone will try to tailgate!!!!!

Shows how little I know about vehicles in general, but I thought he was on the front  :unsure:

I think that was in a Top Gear episode, reusing farm equipment standing idle through the winter and use the harvester as a snowplow

Well....
It is supposed to be a whif... So what if they were inefficient.......

Or what if they were intended to be efficient but turned out not to be.

Like the Belfast? They all needed an upgrade before they could manage the specified range.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Looks like it was Clarkson, and the flame thrower was his idea.....

There was a company called New Idea that sold a power unit and different attachments to turn it into a combine, corn picker, manure spreader or even a snowblower. It went out of business in 2007.

Tow trucks/Wreckers.  Do they fit into the scope of the GB?

Also APCs/IFVs?  They are the land army equivalent of a troop transport aircraft.  Are they in?

The moderators will discuss this and get back to you.

Another question.

The rules state "in a civilian context, pure passenger-carrying means of transport are NOT within the GB's scope".  How much cargo has to be carried before the means of transport falls within the GB's scope?
Take for example a bus carrying mixed passengers and freight.  How much floor space would have to be given over to freight?

The Mods will deliberate.

Other than passenger luggage, what sort of 'freight' is carried on a bus?

Around my area freight on coaches includes that I know for sure is: fish, farming equipment and spare parts, various parcels going from shop to shop etc...

There was a recent discussion on London Underground possibly also carrying cargo.

Here, (intercity) buses often carry parcels also. For example, a few years ago, I picked up a guitar from the bus station, sent to me by a shop a couple of hours away.
