Don't Let The Door Hit You In the ___ On the Way Out!

Today is get-away day and I’ve got one eye on the door… I hope everyone has a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend…

If you need something to argue about in my absence today, this is pretty cool:

GE and Union Pacific have unveiled a new hybrid locomotive that recycles thermal energy from the engine block and stores it in on-board batteries.

If they could work the kinks out and apply this technology to rail freight in California, it would appear to be an enormous step forward.


Have a great weekend!
