One Mile Train


News_Tube_150418_0.jpgFB 上で岩崎美佐子さんがシェアされていた映像が News Tube なるサイトにあったので、ski's STOCKTAKING に記録しておこう。


米国の One mile Train ワンマイルトレインだ。4重連のディーゼル電気機関車が貨車100両以上(私が勘定してみたところ133両……)を牽引……、全長1マイル、およそ1,600mだから時速50kmで2分掛かることになる。


鉄道会社 BNSF

3.4 mile-long UP double-stack freight, 1-10-10

On January 10, 2010, Union Pacific operated a double-stack container train that was 18,061 feet in length, or about 3.42 miles long. The total weight was 15,498 tons. This train was a test of sorts for the Union Pacific. It had several locomotives distributed throughout the train, also known as DPUs, or distributed power units. It originated in Dallas, TX on January 8, and was destined for Long Beach, CA. I was able to see it at the San Timoteo Canyon in the Beaumont Pass area located at the border of San Bernardino County and Riverside County, about 65 miles east of Los Angeles.
