Nottingham's tram is so cool! so does BCN'S and Duisburg and Milan's
Check out this Bombardier tram in Nancy&Caen in France.. it uses single rail, a kind of guided rail technology called TVR. Their trams have rubber tyre so it can veer off track and run like a bus as well as running on reserved tracks.

And even now the 50m Combinos are reaching capacity on the 96 light rail line...

:-) - but the tram isn't the major transporation system here you know, this light-rail network only crosses the southern part of Stockholm and does not go into the city center at all! - but the network will be running with a 7 1/2 minute interval in januar and is also much appreciated by the commuters! It's actually the transportation type that gets ranked highest by the commuters.

The subway though consists of 100 stations and runs with 8 old carriages (or 9 sections with the C20-carriages!) - which is amongst the longest trains in Europe! - and the subway transports around 70 times more ppl daily than the tram!

Oh yes, forgot to say, at peak time - the trams run with 2 coupled carriages, so that makes 4 sections if that makes you more satisfied ;-)

In Milan there are 3 light-rail lines (#4, 7 and 15) and one is under construction (from Milan to Cinisello Balsamo-info here (in italian) )
Some pic of the underground stop:



The tunnel is 600 meters long between Arcimboldi and Mattei stops.

Norway wont join EU in atleast 10-15 more years. Now the red-green parties will start to control Norway from January. With it one of the parties in the parlament is one of the biggest Anti-EU parties, so I dont think it will happend.

Norway will with this maybe leave ES, EFTA system maybe. Because there is so many things that Norway disagrees with EU.

Norway likes to control alcohol income, protect its fish and oil production. It wants to be an alternative to EU.

I dont like EU and its not a good thing for Norway join. We have all of the resources and is ranked as worlds best place to live in 5th year in a row. For countries like the eastern European countries, an EU membership is good, but I fear that there will be lots of jobblosses there.

Either Norway is inside or not,.. its a part of Europe. Having border tougether with Russia, Finland, Sweden and Iceland and Denmark thru sea. We have a task to show support to those which needs it.

Conclusion:
Norway is expensive, but in the new goverment is going for using more of the oil money at the public, which is nice. But its also important to not use them it neither, so next and next generation can have it as good and healthy life as today. The oil money is kinda guarantee money....


Regards,
Michal
