LOL!

That is absolutely hilarious! :-D

I hope that doesn't speak to how well the Metroshuttle actually *runs*!

Chris Blatnick, 2008-02-15

Oooh shit... i hope that Manchesters Metroshuttle is more failsafe than this attempt of a gear unit... ;-)

So VoWe is reading GermanBash.org? :)

ROTFL!

Or maybe there was an engineer in the marketing team, sick of all the lying reality-tweaking, and he tries to calm his conscious by sending a covert message to customers. Then, of course, riding on this transportation can not be recommended.

well ... it alway depends on what they wanted to achieve.

Well... The numbers always stay in the correct orientation!

Bill Sawhill, 2008-02-21

I think Bill is correct here, obviously the spec said that the numbers always had to remain instantly recognizable. The gear was set up in such a way that the design goals could be met. Isn't that the goal of all good engineering?
