The new build steam locomotive Tornado may look like something from a bygone age but it was, in fact, completed in 2008,...
If they built it to look like a modern streamlined locomotive the public would ignore it, worse not even notice it. Hard to build a fan club that way.

The Steam Horse was used in a couple locations where heavy loads had to be pushed up an incline.
Brunton tried to get more customers but during a demonstration the boiler blew up recording the first death by boiler in rail history.

This is a shame, if I was climbing on it and fell I'd get a slap upside the head and told to wipe up the blood.
Now everybody and their lawyer is looking for that golden ticket.

Now if city kids want to climb on stuff, they need to join a climbing gym, pay $150 a month and have their parents sign hold harmless waivers.

This is what we've become.

Suspiciously neat, with nothing outside the rails.

It's possible. Corn hauled in a hopper car that had one of the hatches underneath open just a little as the train is moving along would be a lot like a good dump truck driver spreading gravel.

Yeah, anything is possible but it looks more like a dirty carpet.

Years ago a semi with a bladder full of plywood glue sprung a leak on Hwy 101 north of San Francisco.
The trail of fast drying goo went from Marin County nearly to Humboldt and was easily visible for a year or more, an instant landmark.
I have always wondered about the scene when it got to its destination, empty.

Good find Jim.
Awhile back we had picture of a truckload of molten Aluminum that got dumped on a highway. That got everyone's attention.

I still have trouble with the idea of mobile molten aluminum.
