Re: something completely different

Hello Palindrome,

Thanks for the lucid explanation of the long nose! I guess the force of the slipstream is proportional (roughly) to the square of the train's velocity.

Unless the front end cross section is markedly reduced relative to the cross section of the vehicle proper, the cost of maintaining tunnels would soon become prohibitive.

May Japan enjoy a beautiful cherry season, Alistair
