Yes. The engines would have to run off fossil fuels if electricity is intermittent (This is still the standard, anyways) and a communications system based around local power sources would have to be used. It would be the job of the railway company to keep its stations powered (i.e. fueled). If the railway company can control power to its infastructure, it can run successfully.

Is energy flow involved in a change in state?

Yes, energy is simply a way for things to change, therefore it is needed. Without energy flow (where energy is either gone or constant) a substance will remain the same.

How does the body keep running without a constant food supply?

The body has reserves of energy it can spend when there is no constant food intake. The cells can take energy from certain parts of the body as glucose. These parts can be the liver or the skeletal muscles, which particularly has glycogen (more difficult to assimilate into energy).

Why do you have to conserve energy when infact the energy of this world is constant?

While the TOTAL amount of energy remains constant, on the other hand, useful energy can, and will, be converted into unusable energy.

Can potential energy be negative?

Yes. An object's potential energy is relative to an arbitrary constant. Depending on the choice of that constant, the potential energy can indeed be negative.

Energy input remains constant and voltage remains the same in a curcit but current decreses what must be happening?

- If energy input is constant, then (E x I) is constant. - If 'E' is constant, then 'I' must also be constant. - Your ammeter must be failing.
