So have I.  To a man they have been intelligent.  I think Alexander Pope had Chug in mind when he wrote:  "A little learning is a dangerous thing/Drink deep or taste not the Pyriann Spring."

Nuclear trains!?
Dang goverment!
Train wrecks just got a little worse...
If it goes through, I'm not going to colleage to become a train engineer, it's almost suicide to drive a nuclear train!
Oh,well...what's ya gonna do,
Someone likely posted the same compant when they said steam was over forever...
I thought electric was to stop diesel, or maybe it will? Now it's just a big old race to see which can take our trains into the next genration...I'm hoping electric wins! Grin

Do you realize that most of the trains we run are made in China . In the matter of Natiional security all the locos and cars from China should be taken apart and checked for bugs. They may even contain radio active material.

Chug, no disrepect intended but I am not yet retired military and have ove 27 years in service.  With that said, where in the world do you get your information!  I only read about three or four of your posts and I am astounded at your implications!  Understand that rumors are just that!  Rumors.  I can take a Geiger counter and detect radiation anywhere in the world.  It all depends on the Rads being emmitted as to whether it is serious or not.  The military would not take a multi billion dollar aircraft and intentionally crash it just to determine the amount of "radioactive molecules" deposited.  Computers are so much cheaper!  Your facts are very skewed and just pretty much wrong!    sincerely,

The nearest thing that we will ever have wh en it come to nuclear powered locomotives is a nuclear power station to generate power for an overhear wire.

Yes, nuclear trains! Next, we'll stick our heads in liquid nitrogen!
