Trains and Railroads

Parent Category: Miscellaneous Vehicles
Trains are rail vehicles that travel along a track to transport passengers or freight from one location to another. They are usually powered by diesel locomotives or by electricity, which is supplied by a third rail or overhead lines.
It depends on where you are from or live, but you are able to getone if you live in the right spot.

The "levitation" of the train above the track uses powerfulelectromagnets, which push and pull at slightly varying strengthsfrom the equally magnetized track. As anyone who has experienced anMRI medical exam can attest, the clanging of magnets against theirmounts can be very noisy.
No, the acela train is not a profitable one.
It is possible because a Chinese train MAGLEV floats above amagnet. How does it do it : it takes a bunch of safety precautionsbut they made it North and North so the magnets repel each other.For more information email me at
An agreement between railroad companies to divide business in a given area share the profits
Yes, from late 1840s onwards.

It started to be constructed in 1891 and construction took until 1904. But the Japanese invaded Russia and when they did, a section of the railway was ruined. To rebuild this piece, it took and extra 12 years, meaning it took 25 years to build because of interruptions. The reason it was built is...
Maglev (short for magnetic levitation ) trains are trainsutilizing [electro]magnetism and superconductors to float traincars that would not require the use of traditional rails which area source of friction in many current generation high-speedrailcars.
A number of places - but if you want one time and place (and person) try ; Richard Trevithick on 22 Feb 1804 in England. It took another 20 to 30 years to get all the parts working more or less reliably.

Dubai do not have any bullet train. Dubai has started Metro on 09/09/09. Current speed of Metro is 60-80 KMH. The Metro shape is same as used in Beijing, and Singapore.
Steam can be used to transfer power, but it can't be used for fuel.
It was built in Britain in 1804. The first public railway for steamlocomotives in 1825.

Tom Thumb was the first American-built steam locomotive tooperate on a common-carrier railroad. Designed and constructed byPeter Cooper in 1830, it was built to convince owners of the newlyformed Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) to use steamengines and not intended to enter revenue service.

The only place the magnets on a maglev train could be to perform their designed function would be on the very bottom, spread in a line running fore to aft. A second bank of magnets would be in place of the typical rail lines underneath the train, with similar poles of the two groups of magnets...
Bullet trains were first invented in japan!

Commuter trains make money but they are not profitable. After paying for staff, rolling stock, station running costs, power, cleaning, track repairs and insurance they are operating in the red and need government funded subsidies. The value is present in the fact that they get many taxpaying people...
Caucasian and oriental were the two main ethnic groups. The labor force was made up Chinese and Irish immigrants, as well as veterans of the American Civil War. The veterans would have included African Americans and Hispanics. Source: Wikipedia, First Transcontinental Railroad.
No, the scandal did not really change how the government worked with businesses aside from requiring somewhat more due diligence when selecting organizations to do Federal work.
CNF means your ticket is conformed and and you have been allotted a berth.
Railway tracks have gaps to allow for expansion when the tracksheat up. As the tracks get hotter, they expand and get slightlylarger. Without the gaps, the tracks would buckle from the force ofthe expansion. They have fishplates located between the joins toforce the rails back into lateral alignment...
Occasionally the Native Indians would "harass" the railroad. Thelivestock would be shot at, stations terrorized, and work crewscould be shot at. Twice Indians sabotaged the rails and also aCheyenne raiding party tried to derail a train, killing g all thecrewmen apart from one, who was scalped....

No one. They were imported from England.
Some did, some didn't. Some thought they went too fast for humans to survive (say 20 mph).
If your vehicle stalls on a railroad crossing, it is of course a good idea to try to get it off. If you cannot get it off, get away from your vehicle, and call for help. If you see a train coming, walk towards the train, because when the train hits your vehicle, debris is more likely to fly the...

An adhesion railroad, unlike a cog railroad, is limited to gradesof four to six percent. Freight trains typically operate onrailroads with gradients under one and a half percent. Whilecommuter or passenger cars are able to handle some steepergradients but not like that of a cog railroad which can be...
The railway line from Stratford to Broxbourne was opened by the Northern & Eastern Railway on 15 September 1840. Cheshunt station itself was opened by the Eastern Counties Railway in 1846.
Because Maglev is for asians who have no time to do anything
The bus station is across the road from Pathankot railway station. Buses take two and a half hours to three hours to reach Dalhousie.
No. The nearest railway stations are at Kyle of Lochalsh, Garve, Dingwall or Inverness
A brief answer is Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, BC and Ontario currently have implemented the HST. A longer answer is that Saskatchewan had it in 1991 but it was repealed when the NDP took over -- they may go back to the HST however. Manitoba and Prince Edward Island are considering it....
Yes and No. Online training can supplement classroom training but it is no complete substitute for it but still depends on what type of training we are referring to. For example, I drive a tractor-trailer. If I wanted to teach someone how to back the vehicle, I would start with online training...

I think there would still have been a CPR but it would have taken many more years to build since there were no Chinese who were willing to do hard dangerous work for less than half of what canadains were being paid.
Both the Irish and the Chinese immigrants helped to build the railroads in America.
Speed is nothing more than a change in over a specific time. If the train were to travel 50mi in one hour it would be 50mph, or 50mi in half hr would be 100mph. speed = (change in distance)/(change in time) a little algebra can go a long way. . (and hi)
Depends. . maglev trains run in electricity, and electricity can come fromall sorts of sources. . You can get it from hydro Power, nuclear Power, fossil fuels,solar Power etc. . Renewable or not doesn't matter to a maglev train. They can runon anything that can be turned into electricity.
While passing two trains in opposite directions start sound horn when both engine drivers meet first until they pass the tail end of the trains. If you find it successful, make use of a sensor for automatic function. With regards, M.Narayanan,
The diesels run out of fuel. Electric trains run out of electricity.

sound is wavelengths, and wavelengths get compressed when coming to you (and stretched when going away). the closer the wavelengths, the higher the pitch!
It depends on what type of train is meant by the question. The first horse-drawn railway track was established in South Australia on 18 May 1854. It ran between Goolwa and Port Elliot, and the train, which was mostly for goods, was entirely powered by horses. Victoria was the first Australian...
It stands for Relative Centrifugal Force
the metro rails actually work on the principle of DC shunt motors usage of gears ...many parts are electrified so do not poke the loose connections they can ash you in 1 in 10th sec
Yes. However, you obviously cannot teach yourself ninjutsu if you don't know it already. So find a teacher. Here is a teacher who teaches free that you might want to check out. Just remember that training takes dedication and perseverance....
A caboose is a train car that is at the end of a freight train.They were first used as cabins for the train crew to use on longjourneys. Later they functioned as conductors offices, kitchens andlookout shelters.
I do not know if you can ride these but they do have a switch to make them auto-run so they can go on the track by them self. Though it does take batteries. These trains can have different train company logos on them so I would be a little careful with copyright issues. These trains can be used for...

I see education as the gathering of knowledge, either in general or to a specific field. To me, training is learning how to do a specific activity
A Cross-buck *Added - These signs, with the words RAIL ROAD CROSSING, are required at nearly all publc highway-railroad grade crossings in the US, and are generally mounted within 20 feet of the actual crossing. In Canada, a set that is white with red border is replacing the US type.

What would count as "excessive"? The horns are for safety, they'd quick enough have to "answer" for it if they didn't use them. Obviously, they need to use them as they approach any crossing... that's a no brainer. Probably the best way to approach this would be by a video camera... problem is...
