Nuclear-powered train in Russia…

Remember as a kid and reading Popular Mechanic or Popular Science magazines. They were always full of articles about things that you could verily imagine.  Such as things that Russia spouts about all the time, even now. Now Russia says that they will build a Nuclear Powered Train…

Russian Railways (RZhD) and the Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency (Rosatom) intend to create a nuclear-powered train, reports Interfax. According to RZhD vice-president Valentin Gapanovich, the train, consisting of 11 carriages, will house scientific exhibits. (Link)

What a wonderful thought. A nuclear powered train, that would be like something out of a science fiction book that I read as a kid… 🙂

That really is cool and I only hope that they fulfill what they say. You know they just might be able to do it. They have that very successful floating nuclear power plant and with a little tweaking on size they could adopt it to a train…

That is why I love Russia. Maybe someday we will travel Russia on a Nuclear Powered Train…
