Mordor Transportation

Inspired by the Chatau d' Mordor thread about orc restaurants, I thought of this one - list the possible means of transportation of orcs of the 7th age. I'll start off with this:
Morcedes
Lamborcgini
Orcsvagon
Torcyota
Dorcge
Morcubishi

Feel free to include troll, Nazgul, Balrog ("wings" not acceptable since it's still a question), or any other evil creature transportation as well!

The backbone of the public transport would naturally be the masses of trolleybuses and -coaches.

And let's not forget the overpriced train-line AnthrakX for the well off - and Greywarg buses for the middle class.

I'm a bit surprised no one's mentioned the very obvious Forc yet.
And what about Uruk-haiwoo?

are you referring to the Mordor highways? Or, rather, Isengard highways, seeing as it's Uruk-hai.

No, I was actually trying to pun on Daewoo. But you're quite right, all of these vehicles would probably use the Uruk-haiway.

I was going through some abandoned Mirth threads to cheer me up. Remembered one of my own. Thought a post above was absolutely brilliant and was going to rep it, but turns out I did already all those years ago. Consistency is key. But I would rep it again.

Built in mockery of Entbuses, of course.

The Metromoriatan system, also known as "the Underground", would complement the ground level public transportation.

Can we still rep posts? I've tried recently but couldn't. Maybe it's just my phone that won't let me?

My phone doesn't let me either. And on the computer I have to open it in a new tab if the thread is over 2 or so pages long.
