Either the shooters were lucky, the utility is inept, or the shooters knew exactly which two substations to take out and render power restoration by merely rerouting the power via different lines and different substations a no-go.

My Dad, the very much matter-of-fact, no BS, no urban legend, you'd better document your claims, retired senior Naval Officer said something the other day which really struck me, it went along the lines of, "Whatever they gave Trump for covid has screwed with his mind." That was a most int...

My question is this: was that streamlining just for looks? Or did it actually help the locomotive's performance (in either speed, or fuel economy) by reducing wind resistance? Or did the extra weight hurt performance? Cancel out? They sure looked cool though. The answer is "Yes and no dependin...
