What would happen if by a stroke of bad luck one of these were to derail.
Where would the inertia of the flywheel take it?


Momentum if it is moving and Inertia when stationary.


I think he was wondering if there would be a gyroscopic effect.

It would certainly make going round corners a bit problematic.

It was said to affect the handling of the Gyrobuses developed in the
50's which used flywheels to store energy decades before Parry
started to promote the concept.


ISTM that depends on the axis of rotation of the flywheel. And at least
some of the Gyrobuses allegedly used a vertical axis of rotation.

This is why concrete trucks don't mix (as opposed to agitate) as they go
along - but bicycles and motorcycles are OK.

Maybe he watched it at half speed. Bill's a bit old, you know,
and needs to take things slowly. :-)


You'd like the way I take my time...
