  1. I wish the US had maintained its railroads as well as Russia seems to have. A good railway system will be very important as energy sources become depleted. A countries industries can continue to function quite well with railroads as the prime mover.

    Even if there were no oil for fuel a railroad would still work on steam and wood if it had to.
    I wonder if anyone has thought to combine the microwave stimulated subcritical reactor with locomotive technology, thus creating a super efficient steam locomotive. The advantage of the microwave stimulated sub-critical reactor is that if it loses power the microwave shuts down and the reaction cools instead of going super-critical.

  2. Yes, steam is always an option. There have been advances in “heat” transmition locomotion, (very dangerous to use any form of microwave transmition, even mobile phones can cause cell damage from minimal leakage. There was an attempt by an american company back in the 80s to create a double stage 4=8=4 powering the 8 drivers with both low presure and high presure valves, water vapour recapture, as a response to fuel prices raising (original diesel fuel was about 7cents a ltr back in the 40s, and coal was a lot more expensive, now its the other way around. Some countries have massive reserves of coal, no reserves of oil or gas. Personaly i love old steamers, and have worked with a few restored ones, Awesome freight yard as well, thats a lot of materials sent on their way. thank you for the great pictures.
