> Small loco using single 3-axle truck from a 6-axle locomotive.

NICE! Always wondered why we have never pulled this simple trick. Probably because our 3-axle locos have hydrotransmission which requires somewhat different design of the running gear. Although some 2-axle locos use axlebox units identical to the mega-popular on S1520 2TE116-like trucks.

Probably it costs more to retrofit a bogie rather than to build a full fixed wheel underframe. I'd imagine quite a lot must be replaced or modified, for starters to prevent the whole body of the loco rotating freely when not in front of a train.

I always feel a bit of nostalgia when I see those clunky, '70s styled cars. My dad did a lot of business travelling when I was growing up, so a lot of times my mom and I would take him to DFW airport and end up using the Airtran to get to whichever station was closest to his gate. They've pulled it all out and replaced it with the Skylink in 2005, which, to be frank, operates much, much better than the Airtrans used to.

Now, I do not know if the following is an urban legend or verifiable truth, but here goes…

At a crossing accident inquiry in Punjab, India, a station master was asked how many railway crossings there were in his area of control.

“There are eleven crossings, four unmanned and seven manned. Of the manned crossings, four are male and three are female.”

After a brief pause, the inquiry committee asked about the difference between male and female crossings.

“Those where the barrier pole rises up are male, and those where the gates spread to the sides are female.”

The investigation is on hold until the committee recovers.
