Hi

At present I bel--

That's all I read; if I got this in my email inbox, you'd not only be laughed at, you'd be put on an email blacklist and marked as spam. This isn't you emailing your grandmother at the weekend.

Please, learn how to email people in a business situation:

- Value, what can you give them?
- Proposition, what is it you're proposing?
- Conceptualisation, include numbers.

Longer emails aren't necessarily bad.

It was the Greens he was sending it to, so he could have had a chance thanks to their policies on marijuana.

send this proposal to Elon musk Next!
DO NOT encourage the special person,use a brain and learn to leave some things alone.

Sending it to lots of people would be a good move, it would accelerate progress towards putting Eddy on global spam filters.

I don't think its a bad idea, most of the theory is there. however I do not think that a Magtube will be built in the near future as for $$$$$ I'll be happy the be proven wrong in the future how ever.

You are right with cost being the biggest factor especially as the NWRL contractors have doubled their price.

You may be interested in this email I sent recently to Malcolm Turnbull.



Hi Malcolm

The goal for many hard rock TBM manufacturers is to develop one that can penetrate all geology at ten times the rate as now possible which also saves a lot of money without the need to do surface drilling.

Feasibility studies are good but when developing a new TBM it has to be done in the real world learning as you go and as the NWRL contractors have now doubled their price it may be a good time to develop the Free face TBM

This could be done while driving a section of the Magtube proposal which was rejected by Infrastructure Australia while costing $35b but with only $50 million per year running costs and saving 100,000 tonne of jet fuel per year would still worth looking into.

Richard Branson does not look real convinced.

I think he would rather trains in tunnels that take people city to city like Magtube

Wouldn't *that* suit your agenda well.

Yep

I sent him an email about Magtube after I saw that email sent to me.

Only sent it yesterday so he may respond, one can only hope.

I am on this mobs mailing list too  and think this would be very interesting if a person had the qualifications and money to go.

High-speed maglev
Urban maglev
Cargo maglev
Magnetic Levitation and Guidance in Transport
Energy Storage and Supply
Linear motors
Superconductors, application of superconductivity
Permanent magnets
Guideway and Infrastructure Technologies
Reliability, Safety and Operational Control
Maglev Elevators and Escalators; Magnetic Bearings, Maglev Wind Turbines

This is the email I sent to the Gatesby research centre today. https://www.totalsimulation.co.uk/computational-fluid-dynamics/catesby-tunnel/


Hi

I thought you may be interested in my Magtube proposal.


The Magtube proposal is three single 6m diameter tunnels connecting Melbourne to Sydney with passing stations at Albury and Canberra where northbound trains would wait for 15 minutes while southbound trains are in these tunnels and vice versa.


Each time the 5.6m wide 2,000 seat train enters the tunnel via the double doors it would allow one tonne of air to enter which would then be pushed by the 1,000 kph maglev train towards an electrically driven jet compressor at the other end which would then evacuate it.


Because of the reduced air pressure it would only have the same air resistance as a conventional metro therefore only using the same 137 GWh https://www.resourcesandenergy.nsw.gov.au/about-us/news/2016/sydney-metro-northwest-to-support-new-renewable-energy-project add this to the 1gwh to drive the jet compressors and 200 staff and you have a running cost of $50m with a gaurenteed $2b per year income when it kills the air traffic between Sydney and Melbourne while saving 100,000 tonnes of jet fuel per year.


Using NWRL tunnel costs it would be $30b for the three single tunnels which would last 100 years and $5b for the maglev track.

Richard Branson is very interested maglev trains in reduced pressure tunnels and may support  installing a jet compressor and double doors to experiment
