New S-Bahn commuter trains for Berlin pass extreme environment tests


https://www.globalrailwayreview.com/news/91858/new-s-bahn-commuter-trains-for-berlin-pass-extreme-environment-tests/
After undergoing 12 weeks of rigorous testing in the world’s longest climatic wind tunnel in Vienna, the new S-Bahn commuter trains for Berlin and Brandenburg have proven that they can withstand all severe weather conditions and extreme temperatures. Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens Mobility, said: “The tests in the climate wind tunnel will ensure reliable service by Berlin’s S-Bahn commuter trains in all types of weather. By taking such steps, we are supporting our customers, ensuring reliable operations for our passengers and enhancing passenger experience.”

As part of a larger two-year test, a four-section train of the initial series was assessed to ensure, amongst other things, that: the pantograph will work during heavy snowfalls; the doors will open and close; and the gap-bridging system can be effortlessly extended and retracted. The train met all requirements to pass each test. A representative for the Deutsche Bahn Group (DB) in Berlin, Alexander Kaczmarek, said: “Train reliability in all sorts of weather – this is what our passengers expect of our trains, and we intend to offer it to them in the future with our new series. DB made sure to include this all-encompassing testing program in the technical specifications.”

The climatic wind tunnel, operated by Rail Tec Arsenal (RTA), simulates a wide range of weather and temperature conditions – from -25oC with ice and snow, to 45oC with scorching solar radiation. When undergoing testing, temperature probes and heating mats will simulate the experience of passengers within the compartments of train, whilst a humidifier will add moisture to the air.

Jure Mikolčić, the CEO of Stadler Pankow GmbH, said: “The 483/484 series is the first Berlin S-Bahn commuter train to be equipped with air conditioning. Berlin’s infrastructure requires special technical solutions related to the installation of components and the guidance of chilled air. For this reason, one aspect of the program involved putting these functions through the most demanding types of tests.”

A fine series of before (wall up) and after (wall gone) photos of Berlin, seen from the West.

Because the Fall of the Wall is 30 years ago tomorrow, I'll repost this. Found a historic picture of myself in an online picture gallery in the Berlin paper-based newspaper "Der Tagesspiegel". I'm on the right of the picture, in a red jacket, a slightly confused teenager.

Took a walk around Berlin Kreuzberg Friedrichshain the other day, in late golden autumn. Quite possibly it was one of the last few days with seriously good weather, blue sky and all. Enjoy!

Welcome to the Tuesday #Checkin for October 1


Simple pleasures today - I took an early morning walk with the holiday dog, nicknamed "fluffnutter" by one of you. :) Friends are on holiday, I’m not. What is a breeze in summer, walkies in the early morning before temperatures go above 30C (85F) outside, is almost equally good in today’s sucky rainy cold #Berlin weather at 9C (<50F) just after 6am. Dog’s happy, so am I. No more than half an hour, simple as that. Back for breakfast at 6:45am.

Dog at hand or not, what is your go to simple pleasure? How do you brighten you day, with a simple task, sight, activity? Or chat? Bring up anything you like, carry over previous discussions to today's post, or just say hi. We love to hear from you!



What is #Checkin?


It’s a longstanding daily tradition started by Lawrence (LD) Williams on g+. Peeps throughout the world check in to mingle. It’s been likened to what folks do around a water cooler, on a front porch or at a cafe-bar, but online. If pressed for time just wave (like) as you run/fly/swim by. You’ll always be seen and appreciated.

#Checkin is a daily post-thread where regulars and visitors alike come to chat, as the sun travels through all time zones.

When consumer G+'s sun set, the original checkin (hosted by LD) seamlessly reappeared at MeWe. Pluspora’s checkin also began not long after. #CheckIn is a convenient neighbourhood place where regulars and visitors alike know they can go to chat with familiar friends or with friends they haven’t met yet, as the sun travels through all time zones.

Pluspora CheckIn was initially set up by Su Ann Lim with LD Williams’s help. #Newhere? Think of CheckIn as your virtual local corner establishment where you may know, and get to know, many of the regulars. I’m @Carsten Raddatz (劉愷恩), this week’s moderator at the #Checkin community. Starting August 2019, Pluspora #CheckIn is now hosted by a round robin team:

@Carsten Raddatz (劉愷恩) (Germany, GMT+2)
@Cass M (Canada, GMT-6)
@Nathan Weaver (USA, GMT-5)
@Su Ann Lim (Canada, GMT-7)

How to get included in the daily #CheckIn invitation? Just jump in and comment/like.
How to get uninvited? Let us know via comment or direct message.

IMPORTANT:
To continue to get notifications regardless of rotation, please follow all the current team members.
If by any chance you do not see the day’s #CheckIn post in your notifications/stream, just search #CheckIn. It is a daily forum. There is a new post every day.

IMAGE CREDIT:
My own CC0 material, adapted because of the simple message this has - walkies, any time of the day, any weather, can be fun and rewarding.
Heartfelt thanks to @Dave Sutton for creating the 3D Pluspora Checkin GIF, and for the use of it. ❤️

The holiday doggo is staying with us again - friends are on holiday, I'm not.

OK, so I committed heresy, I made #curry sauce. Not the one for curry rice, the one for "Currywurst", a kind of roasted sausage that apparently was invented shortly after WWII in #Berlin by a woman living in the British sector. It's one of the things you should eat if you visit Berlin.

Why heresy, you may ask. Well, I saw the comments under a number of German YouTube videos explaining how to make a certain flavour of this sauce. This must be some kind of holy thing and judging by my ingredients I would probably see lots of torches and pitchforks if I mentioned what I put in.

So I don't. To be honest, I never wanted to make any curry sauce, but our department (or rather the students) is organizing this year's October fest and someone came up with the idea to sell curry sausage.

Unfortunately the students couldn't come up with anything remotely resembling curry sauce, so the task fell on me. Again. I based my sauce on an US recipe (first heresy), because it was simple (no coca cola, orange juice or whatever) and closer to our available resources. My modifications were probably the second heresy.

But it was accepted and now I need to calculate how much we need for 250 servings. Yes, our students are ambitious this year. Let's hope it works out...

Spendenaufruf der Freien Schule Pankow


persönlich sind wir zwar noch nicht ganz im Schulalter, interessieren uns aber für das Prinzip #demokratischeSchule.

Die Freie Schule Pankow hat wohl etwas Pech beim Bauen gehabt, und daher einen Spendenaufruf auf #betterplace gestartet.

Man kann aber auch unterstützen, indem man bei der Berliner Sparkasse seine Stimme hinterlässt (man muss weder Berliner, noch Kunde der Sparkasse sein). Daten werden wohl auch nur für diesen Zweck erhoben und wieder gelöscht.

Green parks in #Berlin, this time:




Typically not many people around, often tourists heading north towards the Main Station or south towards any of the sights. Late afternoon like when I took the picture, a rather quiet place.

Hello everyone ! In a few weeks I will go to Berlin with my gf. Do you have good places to advise ? We are both anarchist activists, we love art (I often post graffiti here) and party. First time in Berlin for both of us. Thanks !

What is Quicksy?


It's Conversations for people who do not yet have an XMPP account (JID) and like to use their phone number as id. Still 100% compatible with the rest of the XMPP universe. So, not for you, but for your friends and family. Their JID would be [email protected]. That's more or less it.

Copying WhatsApp the right way
