They're actually usually decently clean, excluding coal cars and gondolas. I rode a gondola in the rain for four hours last night. We then gave up on that ride and found a better one. 4 people, 2 rats, 1 do.

Personally I read, sleep or just enjoy the view. I started traveling via ttains because well damn it's easy and free. As for food I mostly dumpster dive, every one with me atm has food stamps, you can also white box outside restaurants. Being homeless is easy as fck if you do it right.

It may have been the designers fault, it may have been BART's fault when ordering the trains with this particular livery of the interior. It's still a bit silly not to take the colour scheme into account with the tastes of that certain social class that use these trains.

STATE logistics group Transnet has applied for a licence to generate electricity, and plans to
regenerate 38MW by 2017, mostly using the technology of its new locomotives.
Transnet, a member of the Energy Intensive Users Group, will need as much as 66% more
energy than its present consumption to implement its R300bn port, rail and pipeline expansion
plans.
Eskom is struggling to meet growing electricity demand and it is urging its major customers to
cut consumption. Transnet Freight Rail applied to the National Energy Regulator of SA (Nersa) for a
powerproducer licence in November 2012. Nersa was waiting to receive a power purchase
agreement between Transnet and Eskom before it granted Transnet a licence.
New locomotives have regenerative braking capabilities.
On its coal and iron ore lines, Transnet regenerated 151,139MWh in the 2012-13 financial year.
This helped it reduce energy consumption by 3.4%, to 3,671,072MWh, enough to power the 2010
Soccer World Cup stadiums nine times over. It gave Transnet a cost saving of R81m despite a 4%
increase in the volumes of cargo moved that year.
Electricity use and savings for the financial year to March 2014 will be released in June.

That is how the Nagasaki extension of the Kyushu Shinkansen is expected to operate on some section between the main Shinkansen line and branch.
I guess half of the issue would be ironing out issues with centre of mass (since it's SG to NG rather than SG to BG) and also whether or not people want it (as strange as that may sound). And according to wiki, there are reliability constraints, something raised with talgo too, notably the significant friction while transitioning.
