that is a proper mammoth train, I wonder how many people have been late for work or whatever due to waiting for that train to go by lol

it looks pretty unbelievable to be honest, your train I believe, but this one is harder to believe, because this is a train riding through urban areas, i'm not sure that is allowed, safety reasons and such, I'm not saying it's fake, but it's just weird

A train that long would require a 250 mile run up just to get up to speed, and then a 250 mile stretch to brake in time. And the energy required to accelerate the entire weight of all of the carriages would be greater than the energy equivalent to six atomic bombs! Plus, due to the (alleged) great length of the train, the first car would be arriving at the destination station, before the last car had even left the departing station, thus breaking Newton's Fourth Law of Thermodynamics!

So, as you'll agree. Fake!

Theres a railway right next to the place where I frequently play football and I've seen very very very long trains, which take like 50 seconds just to get by, so I think its definately possible to have a train as long as this one. Ofcrouse it takes a long time for it to get moving, but not 250 miles.

You throw with numbers #12, without any proof.

#12 While you're playing football, it's easy to lose track of time, so what you think might be 50 seconds, is really only actually 13 seconds. The 250 mile run up is entirely accurate. I could supply you with mathematical proof if you wish, but not here. Look it up if you like. It's to do with the uniform acceleration of a body of known weight. The fundamental formula is v=u+at where u = initial velocity, v = final velocity, a = acceleration, t = time and s = displacement. You then have to combine this with e=mc^2 where e is energy, m = mass, and c = speed of light. Extra factors such as track gradient, wind speed, rolling resistance of the stock, wind resistance and gyroscopic transition effects all serve to complicate the situation.

it's a bit weird comparing energy from atomic bombs with trains but that aside, a train that long, where do you put the carriages on the train, the train has to be moving already in order to attach the carriages (there is no station long enough)
also if there is a station long enough, the engine (even with 2-3 locomotives in the row, like here) is not powerful enough to get it moving, it's possible they do it in remote locations, but certainly not in areas where people live, because if something happens and the train gets of the track, the results could be disasterous

# United States Union Pacific Run from 8th to 10th January 2009, comprising of 295 container wagons and hauled by nine diesel-electric locomotive spread through the train with a total length of 18,000 feet ( 3.4 miles, 5.4 km ), from a terminal in Texas to Los Angeles. Around 600 double-stacked containers were carried at speeds up to 70mph/112km/hr. [12]

found this on wiki, so yeah it is possible but, compare the ammount of locomotives with the carriages, it seems improbable, but not impossible

I can assure you that the comparison with atomic bombs is entirely valid. An atomic bomb produces a known quantity of energy. And a train of given mass will require a known level of energy to accelerate it to a specific velocity and to maintain it at that velocity. Also, consider this: if that train crashes into a stationary object, for example, a nuclear power station, then the resulting explosion would be very similar to the detonation of an atomic bomb.

Not many people know this, but during World War II, the USA originally considered crashing just such a train into Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Their plans were only thwarted when it was pointed out that there was no existing railway line linking the two countries.

Must have been in state where the can make a straight and flat run. I believe there where 10 locomotives moving that train. They are staged in smaller trains and then linked for the big run. I don't know the speed, but in Ohio, because of the crossings and small towns their speed is not as fast nor as long. Some years ago when traveling west on vacation, we saw a long train running parallel to the highway. I had the kids count the cars. 420 cars long and it was traveling at 55 mph. We were traveling around 60 mph.

That's the first time I've ever seen engines in the middle of a long train.

#16 I believe the law states that trains can't block an at grade crossing for more than 5 minutes, For the very reason you stated. This train barely made it under 5 minutes.

The way the engines were staggered this made me believe they were arranged to go over a mountain pass and they planned on splitting the train into 2 or 3 pieces in a rail yard afterward.

The internet have sunk to another new level... I dunno how old some of you guys are, but I am certain that you are not old enough to learned Einstein's Theory of Special relativity to the point of understanding it (And it is useless in this example). Newtons three laws of Physics and the laws of circular motion is what a scientist within mechanics would use to prove the question about this clip... Since the train is not traveling at a velocity close to c it is pointless even mentioning E=mc^2

some container ship must had been arrested on the u.s. west coast during january last year, and company ordered move of the containers upnorth, assumtion somewhere in between los angeles and up above. that means railway proven much economically than having the actual ship entering the first port, where first ship put under arrest. could mean a look'alike export to vancouver, canada. best bonded stock train ever seen, btw. max

I can now reveal the truth about this train. It is a long train, but not as long as you might think. The track is actually a circular track which curves behind the camera and joins back up on the right sand side of the viewpoint. The effect of an extremely long train is achieved therefore by simply joining the first carriage to the last.
