    Not an expert in loco science myself, isn't there an idiot light that tells somebody a turbocharger is blown?
    Why RR's neglect their equipment and demand profits is beyond me.

    Maybe those pesky train stalls aren't as common as all those yoo-toob posts might lead one to believe. I don't blame the train crews but the profit-hungry corporations running the railroads.

    "Wherever our trains creep along, our rails fry, the sparks come to life, our engines stall on grades and we get there late.
    One rough and worn-out line. Infinite failure possibilities." - Norfolk...

    Engines do have sanders. How about a cogged railway?

    I just hope American consumers aren't paying the costs for inefficiency on the part of freight transportation companies. Is my new TV set $100 more expensive than it would be otherwise because...

    I guess then the practical solution is to limit train length on eastern roads and use more trains as necessary to move the freight. My thought also was to have engines in the front, engines in the...

    My three favorite real-world livery designs for diesel locos:

    1. SP: gray with red nose wings
    2. ATSF: red/silver warbonnet
    3. Napa Valley Wine Train, California
  12. How are American RR paint schemes determined?

    Here is a good question: who/what determines what paint scheme is to be used on railroad rolling stock? Most of these railroads are corporate with a bunch of people running it and holding stock in...

    They could probably work if roads weren't too cheap to use the correct number of engines and trainmen for the task.
    The more freight you move, the more money it will cost to move it. Economics made...
  14. Are American railroads cheap or hard up for money?

    Here is a video about a two-mile long freight train that "got stuck in the snow".

    You will find many yoo-toob videos about trains' stalling on...

    Then rear car windows could have been used for loco windshields on GM carbody models. There is a reason thy were called "carbodies".

    Boy. I wish I could relocate these web sites I found on this...

    Suffice it to say, GM would use car parts in their locos wherever practical to do so and to cut production costs.
  17. They might have been rear car or pickup windows...

    They might have been rear car or pickup windows then. I remember reading about this several months ago but I can't seem to catch it on Google now.
    There was a video on YouTube about the F7. The guy...

    but General Motors made exceptions: they were being cheap back in 1947-1953 when the F7 was produced. They weren't that safety-conscious then either. My grandpa's 1961 Corvair lacked factory seat...

    Those engines had split windshields. Post in the middle. Each of two sides was an entire one-piece windshield from an automobile.

    Yes, looking at older American locos that are painted up nicely pleases me the same as looking at a 1950's or 1960's American automobile. An SD40T-2 Tunnel Motor in SP livery delights my eyes as does...

    Yes, many different GM engines of old seemed to have common truck frames. Many body panels, tanks, headlights and air reservoirs look the same on various hood unit models at GM. General Motors was...
  22. The things I hate about new d/e locomotives on American roads the most.

    The weird-looking bogie, axle and wheel styles. They look cartoonish. I like the truck styles up to about the 1980's production GM/EMD locos the best.

    Even ALCO and GE engines looked nicer back in...

    BNSF would look much better in solid orange with black or white lettering.
