In our article about Prima locomotives we described problems at orders of electric locomotives from EKZ. But similar problems concern also KTZ orders of Tulpar Talgo and LKZ, both factories based in Nur-Sultan. Of the Evolution diesel locomotives, which are manufactured at the latter site, only part of the initially planned numbers were built so far.

Hyper-Miracle? Or Hypeloop? (2)

The conclusions reached in our series of articles The Train-In-A-Vacuum-Tube Fantasy demonstrated that the use of Hyperloop technology for passenger transport is impractical and contradicting the laws of physics. Nevertheless, it is remarkable how many Hyperloop projects are now being prepared, on a worldwide scale.

In the preceding series of articles The Train-In-A-Vacuum-Tube Fantasy we examined the laws of physics which govern transport within vacuum tubes. The conclusions reached demonstrated succinctly that the use of Hyperloop technology for passenger transport is impractical, contradicting the laws of physics and raising many issues which appear to lack feasible solutions. Nevertheless, it is remarkable how many Hyperloop projects are now being prepared, on a worldwide scale.

Hyperloop - The Train-In-A-Vacuum-Tube Fantasy (9)

Since 2012 the global media have been intrigued by Hyperloop, a revolutionary concept enabling passenger- and freight-carrying vehicles to move through hermetically-sealed vacuum tubes, at speeds of between 1,100 and 1,200 km/h. It is worthwhile, therefore, for us to undertake a critical examination of some of the technical characteristics of the Hyperloop idea.
