Has to be a photoshop. the Gross weight of that is most certainly NOT 8,800 lbs.

 

A sMart weights soemthing like 700 to 800 kg or up to 1763 pounds. So yeah, a bit optimistic weight class.

I know a railway electrician and after such an accident the really annoying work starts to replace a kilometer or two of overhead wire.

I dont know, they have a charm. Many of the once that had tap changers were noisy as hell, and certainly had character.

Yeah I like those too. Wierd, but you cant argue with success.

 

I still have a fondness for 1500v Class 76 from Woodhead. Wierd, but fun.

I had one of those Märklin HO Krokodil models when I was little, many, many years ago. :(

Apparently all the engines in this series were named after confederate generals from Virginia

They lower themselves immediately in cases like this these days. Still a lot of 'fun' for anyone inside the train.
