You're off topic. (though it's not clear what the topic actually is)

Maybe you should start a thread about me.

But be sure you have something to say first.


Well, this thread is turning out to be about you.

This thread started out with an interesting thought and derailed
into what it became.

I suppose the same topography that determines the most practical path on which to install electrical lines would also be the most practical path on which to build a rail road. And of course these electrical lines are a known cause of wildfires. Coincidence? I don't know.

That's just Phage's evil twin pretending to be him. I'm sure once he wriggles free things will be back to normal.

That's not accurate, a high voltage electrical line can go over steep terrain without issue, a railroad right of way needs to have very gradual grades otherwise it is unusable. In modern construction the grade is kept to 2% maximum in most cases and it is often much less than that.

What does this mean:


Research the Santa Rosa more closely...


The Santa Rosa what? Fire? Santa Rosa already has passenger service which is part of the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit system.

Unless...the railroad is to be the main attraction at a new Disney theme park then a 2% grade would not be nearly enough. I don't know... I'm grasping at straws here.

If we're using the Original Poster's premise than 1.25% is the maximum you can get away with for modern high speed rail.

Which would be an obviously dull Disney attraction.

This thread had alot of potential. After viewing all the devastation imagery on msm showing the path of destruction and more interestingly the burnt disintegrated homes while trees seem to be untouched all around peaked my curiosity.
I'd luv to be entertained from some reputable sources like someone with a PhD in fire science/arson to explain how these wild fires for the first time in history AFAIK seemed to defy the laws of fire physics and forget about the trees.
Stay away from reddit/fb - nothing worth publishing on this topic.

Mr Phage may have come across a tad raw but drop the emotion and I can't disagree.

If there was such a thing as a PhD in Arson I would love to have one.

I'm sure I do, it's just not a real degree, kind of like having a PhD in Cannibalism.

Ya missed my note of sarcasm but yes there is Fire science PhD programs.

Anyways... sounds plausible to me, if you consider the plan to create zones. There will definitely be a pack’em and stack ‘em vertical housing. Agricultural zones, etc, etc.

Then again it’s also reasonable to consider Earth is going through changes with the weather being a major contributor. Dry land, Santa Anna winds, valleys trapping winds.

I don’t know.
I’d like to hear more.

That's how every topic pretty much used to be on ATS.
