What in Blazes

Pennsylvania Rail-road's 1955 'What in Blazes'. some great classic US Traction here as PRR change over from steam haulage to the new diesels and this film is about the dangers of Fire! great footage of working men of the day.

sit back and enjoy this old film - please note, it's a long film and ideally requires a rail plug-in for optimum results.

  • That is pretty complicated procedures.
    I work on automated fire fighting equipment.
    Things have come a long way.
    Aircraft are watched by an IR/UV camera, if a flame emits radiation in the right frequency then the AFFF or CO2 is fired off.

  • I wonder if there's any danger to the crew with all that CO2 in the air as they fight the blaze.?

  • It's often puzzled my why the US as the world's greatest industrial nation has such a poor rail network.

    There is very little inter-city passenger train traffic and it appears the main freight networks are run-down, inefficient, and much smaller than previously.

    • it seems with the uptake of air-travel after the war, the rail systems were left to deteriorate. as you know from your own well run system they require constant work without let-up otherwise they will run down rapidly. plus, the perceived idea that longer distances require a faster means of travel which really isn't true especially for freight.

      I think USA will see a resurgence in Rail and Inter City Hi-Speed Links which could benefit the whole country in such a positive way and help reduce re More..

    • @thecleaner001

      I'm actually doing some work in our own 'well run system' - in Western Australia.

      The metro network is good, as is the line to the Eastern States.

      The rest is mostly very slow speed ancient wheat-train tracks.

      My project now is in the Mid-West / North-West. The tracks are much better as they are used to carry minerals, primarily iron ore. They don't run fast but they do run an awful lot and have created wealth almost beyond dream in this State.
