TAJUÑA RIVER RAILWAY - MADRID - SPAIN

Used today for tourism, has been since the nineteenth century a rural railway between Madrid and surrounding provinces. When I was running was told a couplet "El tren de Arganda pita mas que anda" (The Arganda train whistle more that running)

The US tried it too.

First of all, the turbines consume A LOT of fuel, especially back then.

Second of all, turbines are only efficient at high speed. Acceleration, deceleration, and reversing are weak points, so start-and-stop operations are inferior-that's why you see point to point operation on airliners.

Third of all, they produce a lot of noise and jet blast, which is detrimental to lineside residents and workers, as well as railroad employees.

There have been attempts to have turbines connected to the wheels and propelling the car that way. See here for more information-none of the projects have been more than a moderate success: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas_turbine_train
