  1. This unit makes since. Russia would be heavily reliant on rail transport to fend off a Chinese assault. So the maintenance and construction of rail lines would be key. I think most NATO countries are reliant on air mobile assets. Although, I am sure they would make use of rail logistics lines if they were available.

  2. Impressive. Keep the military (of both the U.S. and Russia) occupied in civil engineering and public works and the planet will be a happier place.

  3. Actually in many nations the rail system comes under the control of the US government during times of war.The US Army has a rail system and it own locomotives and support in a time of need they can take over any rail companies assets.

    • LOL. “Actually in many nations the rail system comes under the control of the US government during times of war.”

      Hah. Why, I ask u, WHY, would nations give up their railroads to the US?!!! ROTFLMAO!!
