Crazy JET ENGINE POWERED Train M 497 unveiled in 1966 in New York United States
The M-497 (nicknamed Black Beetle) was an experimental jet-powered locomotive test bed of the New York Central Railroad corporation, developed and tested in 1966 in the United States of America. Two second-hand General Electric J47-19 jet engines (designed as Boosters for the Convair B-36 intercontinental bomber) were mounted atop an existing Budd Rail Diesel Car (an RDC-3, part coach, part baggage and mail configuration) body which had received a streamlined front cowling. The construct was then successfully sent on test runs over the existing tracks between Butler, Indiana and Stryker, Ohio (the line was chosen for its arrow-straight layout and good condition, but otherwise unmodified track). The car reached a speed of 183.68 mph (295.54 km/h), still the light-rail speed record for the United States.[1][2][3] Even with this spectacular performance (and even though it had been built relatively cheaply, using existing parts), the project was not considered viable commercially. The railroad gathered valuable test data regarding the stresses of high-speed rail travel on conventional equipment and tracks then existing in America. The data was largely ignored, as the NYC was headed for merger with its arch rival Pennsylvania Railroad. The PRR was already heavily involved in the USDOT-funded Metroliner project. After jet engine removal, the rail car returned to normal service and was scrapped in 1984.[1][2] A locomotive or engine is a railway vehicle that provides the motive power for a train. The word originates from the Latin loco -- "from a place", ablative of locus, "place" + Medieval Latin motivus, "causing motion", and is a shortened form of the term locomotive engine,[1] first used in the early 19th century to distinguish between mobile and stationary steam engines. A locomotive has no payload capacity of its own, and its sole purpose is to move the train along the tracks. In contrast, some trains have self-propelled payload-carrying vehicles. These are not normally considered locomotives, and may be referred to as multiple units, motor coaches or railcars. The use of these self-propelled vehicles is increasingly common for passenger trains, but rare for freight (see CargoSprinter). Vehicles which provide motive power to haul an unpowered train, but are not generally considered locomotives because they have payload space or are rarely detached from their trains, are known as power cars. Rail transport is a means of conveyance of passengers and goods, by way of wheeled vehicles running on rails. It is also commonly referred to as train transport. In contrast to road transport, where vehicles merely run on a prepared surface, rail vehicles are also directionally guided by the tracks on which they run. Track usually consists of steel rails installed on sleepers/ties and ballast, on which the rolling stock, usually fitted with metal wheels, moves. However, other variations are also possible, such as slab track where the rails are fastened to a concrete foundation resting on a prepared subsurface. Rolling stock in railway transport systems generally has lower frictional resistance when compared with highway vehicles and the passenger and freight cars (carriages and wagons) can be coupled into longer trains. The operation is carried out by a railway company, providing transport between train stations or freight customer facilities. Power is provided by locomotives which either draw electrical power from a railway electrification system or produce their own power, usually by diesel engines. Most tracks are accompanied by a signalling system. Railways are a safe land transport system when compared to other forms of transport.[Nb 1] Railway transport is capable of high levels of passenger and cargo utilization and energy efficiency, but is often less flexible and more capital-intensive than highway transport is, when lower traffic levels are considered. New York is a state in the Northeastern region of the United States. New York is the 27th-most extensive, the third-most populous, and the seventh-most densely populated of the 50 United States. New York is bordered by New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south, and by Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont to the east. The state has a maritime border with Rhode Island east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canadian provinces of Ontario to the west and north, and Quebec to the north. The state of New York is often referred to as New York State, so as to distinguish it from New York City. Rail transport is a means of conveyance of passengers and goods, by way of wheeled vehicles running on rails. It is also commonly referred to as train transport. In contrast to road transport, where vehicles merely run on a prepared surface, rail vehicles are also directionally guided by the tracks on which they run.

Riverside & Great Northern - An Engineer's View - Pumpkin Train 2008
The Riverside &Great Northern Railway in Wisconsin Dells, WI is a 15" gauge railway dating back to the late 1940's. The main line is 1.5 miles long giving a 3 mile long train ride lasting about 30 - 40 min. This little railroad is a living museum. Many steam engines and diesel engines along with almost countless rolling stock was built right here for amusement parks and zoo's and is not for profit, maintained and operated by volunteers. Come join us for all the railroading fun and take a tour of the Engine Shop, Round House, Depot and much more. Learn about the Sandley Light Railway Equipment Works and the Sandley legacy. Have a picnic in our park while watching the trains. There are lots of trees for shade and plenty of picnic tables to go around. Or get something to eat in the Iron Horse Café.

Gas Engine TRAIN, Large BackYard... on Virgin Trip

Opening 'The Anglian' train set from Hornby
Taking a good look at 'The Anglian' Hornby train set. From opening the box, to looking at the loco and coaches, and finally putting it all on the track for a quick run around the layout to see what it's all really like!





Plowing_Snow_TM-KW_3-3-12.mp4
Plowing snow on a 7.5" Gauge Railroad. This video shows opening the track between Train Mountain and Klamath & Western. The snow was 18" deep in some places, and the track under the snow was sufficiently icy that it was difficult to build up speed. After coming up the 2.5% Pena grade, I was able to build up speed going over the dry track on the bridge into the 1.8% downgrade. You can see how the snow flies with a little speed. Unfortunately, the camera angle was not always good as I was holding the camera with one hand and operating the locomotive with the other, while holding my feet up out of the snow.





Opening the Mixed Goods Train Set by Hornby
*Yes, I KNOW 9 is not a prime number - I blame the sun (too much of)* Now called the 'Mixed Freight' set, this train set is Hornby's defacto DCC beginner's set - featuring 2x DCC factory fitted locomotives, a small rake of rolling stock, some track and of course - a DCC controller. Whilst the overall quality of the set is far from premium, for someone wanting to enter the world of DCC, this set makes for a great stepping stone.
