I m 15 and had no one with me, it was so traumatic, luckily I saw nothing but I heard it all, I cant stop thinking about the noise and how he and his loved ones must have felt. How does anyone forget that?

  • Do steam trains serve any purpose today?

    Best answer: There are many short lines that carry passengers, usually mostly tourists but sometimes local passengers and even freight that use steam locomotives. Those currently in use are mostly oil burning or have been converted to oil burning. Wood or coal fired locomotives would not be practical at all. Other than that,... show more

Those currently in use are mostly oil burning or have been converted to oil burning. Wood or coal fired locomotives would not be practical at all.

    Other than that, steam locomotives would be useless on most railroads. The water towers and other track-side equipment needed for their operation simply no longer exists.

    Steam locomotives became out of date, not because the diesel-Electrics were better, but because the steam locomotive simply requires too much maintenance. they were incredibly powerful though. I can remember when a steam locomotive would sit on a siding at the lower end of Soledad Canyon in California. When a Diesel-Electric train would pass, the old steamer would pullonto the main line and push the train over the Tehachape Pass. Finally, they just kept adding more of the Diesel-Electrics to the trains and the use of Steam pushers did not last long.

  • When building the railroads in the American West, in an already existing town, were the stations built after or before the railroad arrived?

    Best answer: It wouldn't make any sense to build a station BEFORE the railroad arrived. Station buildings were built next to the tracks. When the railroad came through, they laid their tracks in the easiest locations to get to. Entire towns had to move, sometimes by miles, just because the tracks were built too far away... show more

    In Necedah Wisconsin, There's a campground in a state park in which has a railroad used by both CSX and Union Pacific Railroad. I've been going up to this property my dad's friend has for years and Its safe to say alot has changed there. I doubt that I'll get an answer from a local there or someone that has been there before. My question is, why are the Freight trains there traveling alot slower than they used to. I can recall being 7 and 8 years old going up there, trains used to fly by anywhere between 45-55mph But after going up in 2012 after 8 years from the last time being there, trains now seem to crawl through Necedah anywhere between 15-30mph. but Why I ask. Safety Reasons? or a explanation of why the railroad lowered the limit. I do know its a rural area that the crossings up there used to have just crossbucks and a stop sign. And they recently installed gates at the crossings. a few years ago. So if anyone has an answer, I'll take it. Btw if you need a comparison I got two videos taken from two different times I posted to Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIRYGenZ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGMGJvC5... Footage all recorded in the same area.

  • Can a tube line share track with a railway line underground?

    Best answer: It is possible
    As you have already noted it depends on the size of tunnel and size of other train. Even all tube trains cannot go on all tracks in the London System.
    The newer tunnels are larger.

  • When a train with multiple locomotives blows the horn, do all the horns of all the locomotives go of, or just the one with the driver?

    Best answer: In most cases just the one at the Front.
    Little need to have the others sound off too.

    Train driver has more than enough noise to deal with each time he sounds the horn.
    WHY would the others need to sound off?
