That was unexpected.


Here's another unexpected mashup:

The idea of a Navy train made me wonder whether something like this existed. Apparently it does.

But that CG Railway is private enterprise moving trains between North and South America. But damn you, you got me curious too.

Yes the US Navy has trains, with yellow engines and gray rolling stock. The largest is in Crane, IN, at the Navel Surface Warfare Center there.
There are smaller ones around the country, at least one in NJ and a couple in CA, I could find. The locomotives are mostly electric or diesel/electric, so don’t toot-toot like Popeye. They are all involved with moving things that go boom. Moving munitions from inland stores to warships in port, or around various munitions storage and testing facilities.

So apparently speed limits are sometimes important.

The National Transportation Safety Board says the train that derailed Monday as it made its way from Seattle to Portland was going more that twice the posted speed limit when it jumped the tracks on a bridge over a busy interstate highway.

No 5820 leaves Oakworth station on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway in West Yorkshire.

This is a rather unusual sight as most heritage lines run the old work horses from the heyday of British steam.

Quote:
No. 5820 was built in 1945 by Lima of Ohio in the U.S.A for the US Army to aid the war effort in Europe, being shipped directly to Poland.
After the war the locomotive was taken into stock by Poland State Railways and re-numbered TR203-474.
The engine remained in Poland until withdrawal for preservation by the Polish Railway Museum in Warsaw.

Purchased by the Railway, 5820 finally arrived at Haworth in November 1977 and entered service on the Worth Valley in the following year still carrying the Polish livery.
During this time the engine was re-liveried to USATC grey and chosen to appear in the feature film “Yanks”, filmed on location in Keighley.

Following withdrawal at the expiration of its boiler certificate, the engine was laid aside until a lengthy restoration was undertaken.
After a thorough overall the engine returned to service in February 2014, temporarily painted in British Railways unlined black, fictitiously numbered 95820.
For the Easter holiday 5820 regained its number and authentic USATC grey livery and is regularly seen working trains along the branch.
Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.
