Sheesh! There is something to "long end forward", though most roads don't do it. We had an "interesting" one in Sedalia, Colorado, last night. A train (presumably BNSF from the location, but I can't say for sure), had a bunch of cars derail. The local news station showed a wheel/axel set rolling down the street toward a service station! Luckily, the wheel set stopped near but not on a set of gasoline pumps and a vehicle. Thankfully, nobody hurt, little collateral damage. All cars that derailed stayed upright. NTSB or whoever is investigating. We look at our model wheel sets and don't think much about them when they are separate from a truck frame. But the real thing has a bunch more mass and momentum. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to - An online railroad bookstore featuring a curated selection of new and used railroad books.
