#RailNatter Episode 149: Light Rail Does Not Exist (and other #NotAMetro fun)
People are still talking about "light railways" as if those actually, meaningfully exist. In this episode, I'll explain why THEY DON'T!
We'll look at why it is useful to avoid daft, meaningless names for types of transport, we'll talk about how unhelpful the Light Railways Act is, and in turn we'll shout at the Germanosphere for propagating the use of names such as "Stadtbahn" and so on... All via the still-working #NotAMetro sorter!
As ever, think up and send in your edge cases to try and break the sorter...
