Except Colin the railway no longer has the sidings to deal with these trains, and the timetables are generally so full that there is little to no room to fit freight trains in, other than in the middle of the night.

And what do you do when there are no railways, as in large areas of the country?



Just shows the folly of the last few decades doesn't it. As a result of scrapping the plans I mentioned we now have roads choked up with thousands of huge lorries, all running on diesel. We now have huge trucks delivering in our city centres when we could have had much smaller electric trucks.

Being a retired train driver I know exactly what you mean about our overloaded or non-existent railways.

Sounds like it's time for the horse drawn barges to reappear. As luck would have it they've been re-opening many of the canals lately.

Certainly many of the major cities have big air quality problems and must do something. Bristol is in trouble and has yet to come up with a plan. Unfortunately one of the worst roads is right outside the bus station where thee are not only buses accelerating away but they park buses on the road with engines running because the bus station is too small.

I cannot understand why they haven't gone to electric buses. The new fleet is bio gas which will still emit nasty stuff, just a little less perhaps. It certainly won't smell of roses.

For those that have serious towing requirements the Rivian SUV could be the answer, with a quoted 3,500kg towing capacity, they also promise a pick up model with 5,000kg towing capacity.

Both vehicles are full on BEV's with an upto range of 400 miles.

They will be first available in the US but plans are in place for UK models.

Although the Rivian won't be cheap, expect prices to be on a par to the Range Rover etc.

Can't do the linky, but the Rivian does look interesting.

That looks a fantastic car! I just wish it wish it was £30K cheaper, it would be a serious contender.

Looks like Tesla are being left well behind.

Thanks blueexpo97, the big change will happen when they stop manufacturing ICE cars, although I guess that may be 20 years down the line.
