- May 2, 2005Thanks for all those tidbits. Windoze XP was a real surprise. I guess
Billy Gates is really going to run everything. I can just see a piece
of spam working its way in and messing up signal control. Couldn't a
trackside hacker have a field day. Scary!
Actually the price doesn't seem as high as I thought it might be. The
basic power equipment seems fairly simple, but all the electronics and
controls must cost a real bundle.
Again thanks for a couple of eye openers.

Hi Don and All the Other Dandy DudetteZ 'n DudeZ,
The average cost of a brand-spanking-new GE or EMD diesel-electric
locomotive is about $2 million today, but, as with any other mode of
transportation, your mileage may vary a few hundred thousand dollars
either way, [snip]
