Ajax is certainly the last of the Astute class to date, however, she has yet to laid down - thought the long lead items have been ordered.
HMS Agamemnon was laid down last week though, on the 18th to be precise. So smacked wrists for whoever runs the BAE intranet.

this is an accident that should never have happened with a French TGV.

its design that it would stay on track and cars clinging to each other.
And multiple security would have worked.
Since the TGV runs there were only six wounded

That is Spain.
The train does not have the TGV safety system.
RIP all those who lost their lives.

The package is designed as an ordinary train wagon = hooked to a car.
Accident cars overlap.
The TVG is an articulated whole. There were accidents but never the cars broke away, or mounted on top of each other.
However, when two TGV sets are hung up on the second could the first.
This has never happened

TGV and can not go faster than what is expected at the place of safety Xcar stop the train

The Talgo 250 involved in this accident have two power cars at each end with articulated carriages in between just like the TGV.
Due to the speed the first carriage tipped over and left the rails. It did not ride over the overs, it simply fell over.
For a short time this carriage dragged the coaches behind and the power car in front off the rails before detaching. The rear of the two front power cars then pulled the front power car into the ballast, You can see in the footage how the rear bogie boggs down causing it roll over.
Once the train has left the rails there is nothing to stop the whole thing folding up in a concertina.


I would have thought that the safety equipment on this train would have never let the driver go so fast in this area.

hello

it happened that the TGV sets, high-speed network on the north I think. The whole train is out of the way but the system has prevented the cars overlap.

Of course, the TGV is not immune to a drama .............
 
Talgo is inspired by the TGV, but there are differences, I am not a technician railway, but I can get that
Best regards

the difference is that the TGV has only one bogie between cars
 
Talgo bogies and two would be equipped with a tilting system

System that has not had time to take action in this accident

the system on the Talgo could be adapted to the old Spanish channels that do not have the same spacing as the international routes

All this makes the axles, made in Spain, especially for the AVE does not provide the necessary rigidity poue entering a curve at that speed.

The AVE is designed for 180/250 km straight line

Not much else to be done with them, rotting away up the trot. We are unlikely to be fighting any proper wars any time soon. Chop em up...Any civilians stranded ashore in foreign lands can always call on Ryan Air :-))

Dave - anybody dumb enough to buy one of those things totally deserves anything that happens to them, including the action replay and having marks for style posted on twitter.
Gazou - thank you, but just too much information there.....

Whether you thought his tactics were correct or not in the Falkland Islands, it's a sad day for the Navy to say goodbye to Admiral 'Sandy' Woodwood, Commander of the fleet that retook the islands in 1982.
Admiral Woodwood died yesterday after a long illness, aged 81.


After the Falklands conflict he was awarded the Segrave Trophy for racing to the islands in three weeks, a record at the time, normally awarded to Land or Water Speed record challengers or racing drivers.
