Those poor drivers there! Which ones of the corresponding trains above whistled, all of them? Neat that you've lobbed another trio of trains racing one another (your middle video, 0'21")

Actually, it's the youtube video labelled as follows that I had in mind:

The whistle is by the meter gauge local train. I found all the three on net, not mine yet to film a train race...

They were racing but without the videographer Those locos must be powerful what with the length of their trains, unless it just be the matter of North American railway operators simply being over zealous using multiple locos all these decades

Well, in 1520 locos that consist of 2 or 3 semi-permanently coupled units are common, (2 or 3 for freight and 2 for heavy passenger trains), unlike NA, where they prefer to couple single locos.

Almost all Indian Railways(IR) locos designed after mid 80s can haul 24 AC(heavy) coaches with ease. They were built in large numbers but when compared with IR's size its still less. Still its common to see twin locos pulled express trains...

Wow, Vicvin86, your shares are so fascinating I pity those drivers for all the foot traffic they must deal with, although their whistling to railfans shows they're ultimately good sports. Tell me, might you know if the trackside textiles (captured below) are entrpreneurial, as in a makeshift stall, shop?


clickable...

Your introductory manner suggests to me your writing in a (bluntly) exclusionary tone, for --after all-- my swift search of this very thread reveals the above-quoted being the lone, isolated instance of 1,520 locomotives Anyhow, India's railways are appearing more advanced than Canadian ones nowadays, e.g., they possess multiple high-speed turnouts

I mean 1520 mm locomotives - e.g railroads of ex-Soviet, Mongolia and Finland.
The entire idea of my post - that if Noth American railways dont use dual-section locos nowadays, that doesn't mean other railways do not.

Thanks to railfans here!!! I dont think loco pilots check foot traffic in the coaches but Railway police keep them under check...

Those are washed clothes kept there to dry them...

With ease, but I imagine very slow acceleration. With the kind of distances they do between stops its a fair trade off.
