    We ran to the sounds of thunder.
    We danced among the lightning bolts,
    and tore the R10's assfromunder.

    Holy shite............
    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    With CN on its side, it's probably a Canadian National train.

    Hi
    Interesting !!!
    WE live near the main rail line in Newcastle. We thought the coal dust from the continuous line of coal trains was the danger. We might have to fit reinforcing to the roof too

    Some of the old imported engines they have brought in from overseas, in recent times, to keep up with the coal bonanza sound like they might throw a cylinder any day. They never stop as they are on loops at each end and the waggons are permanently coupled. The waggon "square wheels" just go by day after day, clacking away.

    Good pics thanksJaahn

    If that was a Napier Deltic engine there would have been 17 more cylinders and 35 more pistons still to go.
    They were used on some English Electric Diesel Locos

    Fascinating engines these, basically three opposed piston 2-stroke straight sixes set up in triangular formation.
    At its ultimate development 5,600 bhp and that was in 1956

    Actually a little more complicated! More like three VEE sixes arranged in triangular pattern with each piston sharing a bore with its opposing piston. Each of the 18 cylinders thus have two pistons, making a total of another 35 projectiles ready for launch.

    That "entry would" on the roof is remarkably neat but the exit through the ceiling below is not so pretty.

    What do you expect,USA and the Canadians are a frigid lot, still trying to get out of the 1950 bubble, as for DIESEL ENGINES, 2x2ltr hdi C5 motors from France could a better job.

    Actually it's a little bigger than that. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GE_Dash_9-44CW.

The design has since proven popular with North American railroads. Because of more stringent emissions requirements that came into effect in the United States on January 1, 2005, the Dash 9-44CW has been replaced in production by the GE ES44DC.
