Intro: Mecanoo Architects design the new Delft station, marking one’s arrival at Delft as a ceremonial and memorable experience…
Copy: Delft’s new train station is now in use. It was officially opened on Saturday, 28th February 2015. The station, in combination with municipal offices and the new city hall, sits atop a new train tunnel built in place of the old concrete viaduct that has divided the city in two since 1965. From the outset, Mecanoo’s idea has been to design a station that makes it clear to visitors that they have arrived in Delft.
Says Francine Houben, Mecanoo’s creative director, -Coming up the escalators, the impressive ceiling with the historic map of Delft unfolds. When you look outside, you see the city and the old station as a modern -View of Delft’ by the painter Johannes Vermeer. Arriving in Delft is now an unforgettable experience!-
The character of Delft, epitomised by the combination of past and future, was the starting point for the design led by Francesco Veenstra of Mecanoo. A vaulted ceiling features an enormous historic 1877 map of Delft and its surroundings, connecting the station with the city hall that is currently under construction. Within the station hall, walls and columns are adorned with a contemporary re-interpretation of Delft Blue tiles. In 2017, you will be able to walk directly from the station into the city hall.
The glass skin of the building is designed to reflect the Dutch skies. The panels of fused glass with lens-like spheres reference a vernacular window design that can be seen throughout the historic city. The combination and rhythm of open panels of high performance glass and closed fused glass panels enable a high degree of energy efficiency.
Throughout the design process the building volume has been shaved and reformed to create a compact, highly efficient building form. The lowered roof lines at the corners provide a gradual transition towards the existing small-scale development of the Delft city centre and the adjacent Wester Quarter. Incisions in the glass volume form a pattern of alleyways and courtyards, which are themselves inspired by the intricate structure of Delft itself.
The station hall is a part of the first phase of the development of the station and municipal office. When the old railway viaduct will be demolished in 2017, and the city hall and entire municipal offices completed, the whole complex will be open to the public.

LONDON, July 25 (Reuters) – Lance Armstrong said he was not surprised by a French Senate inquiry’s findings that the top two in the 1998 Tour de France took the banned blood booster EPO because virtually all riders at that time cheated and told lies.
“I am not surprised,” the disgraced Tour winner told Cyclingnews. “As I have said, it was an unfortunate era for all of us and virtually all of us broke the rules, and lied about it.”
The American, who was stripped of his seven Tour titles for doping, called for cycling to address its doping past in a “collective and co-operative manner”.
“If we don’t come together, have the conversation and draw a line in the sand and then move on, we’re all screwed,” he said.
Armstrong admitted having taken performance-enhancing drugs in January and was stripped of the Tour titles he won from 1999 to 2005 after the United States Anti-Doping Agency said it had uncovered a sophisticated doping programme.
Armstrong did not compete in 1998 because he was battling cancer but the French Senate inquiry, published on Wednesday, named him as testing positive for EPO in 1999.
Italian Marco Pantani, who won the Tour in 1998 and died of a drug overdose in 2004, and Jan Ullrich of Germany, who finished second in 1998, were among those named in the 918-page report compiled by a parliamentary group who called for a “truth and reconciliation” commission (TRC) to be created to lift the veil of silence on illegal practices.
Since Armstrong confessed to doping on the Oprah Winfrey show in January he has called for a truth and reconciliation programme on several occasions.
WADA, the world anti-doping agency, the International Cycling Union (UCI) and national federations have been wary of the suggestion, although UCI presidential candidate Brian Cookson has appeared open to the suggestion of Armstrong sharing his past.
Armstrong continued: “I have not been contacted by anyone. I suspect in many ways they (WADA) are afraid of a TRC as it would fly in the face of the now famous talking point ‘the most sophisticated doping programme in the history of the world’.”
Asked if the Senate’s findings would benefit the sport, Armstrong told Cyclingnews: “I don’t know. I really don’t.
“I’d like to think that there is some good in all this but from my perspective, sitting here today, there has been nothing but damage done to the sport.” (Reporting by Mike Collett; Editing by Clare Fallon)

All trains must have a track to run on. Therefore; it is very important that when you build a model train track layout that you use the right track for the right job. If you are modeling in the steam era, you will need a turn table or a Y track to turn your locomotive around. Diesel Electric locomotive can run in any direction. When it comes to the radius of the curves is all comes down to the gauge you are modeling.
When modeling in N gauge track, the main line curves should have at least a radius of 11.25″. The larger the radius the better the locomotives will negotiate the turns, especially at full speed. If the curves are too tight the locomotive could bind or even derail.
Now let”s look at HO scale train track. If you are modeling in steam all 4-8-4 engines need at least a 22″ radius. Also the 2-8-4 and 2-10-4″s need at least 22″ radius. The 2-8-0s, 2-6-2s, 0-6-0s, and 4-4-0s locomotives must have a minimum radius of 18″. Most of the diesel electric locomotives in HO gauge must have at least a radius of 18″, except for the EMD DDX40AX must have at least a 22″ radius. Also, most switchers in HO gauge can negotiate a 15″ radius curve.
The O gauge tracks are not measured by radius, but by diameter. For example, 0-27 means the track has a 27″ diameter. Most O gauge street cars can handle an 0-27 curve. The PA-1, E7, General Electric Dash 9, Fairbands-Moses, U33C, FP45, SD45, SD90, and General Electric Amtrak locomotive all need an O-31 diameter curve. Whereas, the FA-1, F7, F3, Baldwin Shark, GP9, General Electric Dash 9, GP38, Bl2, NW-2, General Electric 44 Ton, locomotives all need an O-27 diameter curve. Now let”s look at the steam locomotive track diameter curves. The 4-8-4,2-8-4 locomotive can negotiate a O-31 diameter curve. Whereas, the 4-6-4 locomotive really needs an O-42 curve diameter track to negotiate the curve without any problem.
The G gauge or Large Scale trains need at least a 4″ diameter curve. Theses radius are the minimum for the locomotive that is operating on that track. Even though, this is the recommended minimum curve, you can always model your train track in a larger radius that will make the trains look even more realistic. Also, just because the locomotive can negotiate the curves you have to take into consideration that some long passenger cars may need a larger radius than the locomotive. Remember to make your track look realistic you must ballast the track and install culverts and ditches so that the water can be carried away from the rails. You also need to make sure that you have great electrical connection on your entire track to keep your trains running smoothly as they should. As always remember the main thing is to always have fun when it comes to building your model train layout.

Knockout rats are considered as the most intelligent and clever rodent. According to the latest research, these rats and mice are considered as the cleverest rodent on planet earth. Nowadays, trend of having knockout mice as pet animal is increasing rapidly. People are now getting awareness about the fact that these rats are very friendly animals and they would love to live in a clean and friendly environment. There are number of people who still think that these rats are not pet animals and they can’t live with humans but reality is different than imagination. Latest reports have proved that these rats can easily live with humans and can become more socialized as compared to earlier.
Knockout mice are easier to train as compared to rats and the main reason behind this fact is very simple. Mice eat less quantity of food in one sitting while rats eat more quantity of food as compared to mice. This is one of major reasons due to which mice have slim and flexible body structure as compared to knockout rats. In this regard, clicker is an important device that is being used by majority of trainers. With the help of clicker, you can produce different kinds of sounds so that your pet can understand your instructions as per the sound.
Sometimes, your pet rat is getting irritate with the sound of clicker and at that time, you are required to understand the behavior of your pet so that you can change your clicker.
