My first attempt at editing video clips together and adding a bit of music to my videos. This is my Lionel General 4-4-0 ‘North Pole Central’ steam locomotive, with a few people borrowed from my Polar Express train! 🙂 Video Rating: 5 / 5
Have you ever wondered what a modern locomotive looks like from the cab? This video shows a modern Canadian Pacific GE ES44AC (GEVO) locomotive from the hoggers perspective. I really enjoyed being up in a large cab. It was very fun. Please enjoy the video and don’t forget to Comment, rate and Subscribe to my channel and this video. LocalRailfan Video Productions 2009.
Question by Richard H: Do you think its time for Boeing and General Electric to start making dynamic passenger rail trains?
They would probably be very good at it.
Answer by James H Boeing was in the passenger train business, building the “US Standard Light Rail Vehicle”, which was a MISERABLE failure. They did build a successful series of subway cars for chicago, but were underbid on all other attempts.
Though GE, and for that matter Electro-Motive Diesele, are well known for their locomotives, getting into the passenger car market which is held in a tight grip by Bombardier and Kawasaki would be a nightmare.
