    I use a lot of butter on my waffles or pancakes but just 1 of those blobs of butter would last me a life time. But I could have used it to grease the train rails where I used to live to stop the dang trains
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    I debated if this went in "Vintage Work Crew Photos" but those guys had to work hard for their money!

    They've caught drug smugglers trying this here on the SW border. Kinda hard to fool any trackers since bipeds can't really recreate a quadruped's walking gait.

    At least this one is somewhat about woodworking and creating your own tools!

    If that was such a FULL load of lumber on that single axle truck, it would certainly be sagging, and the tires squished unless they were solids.

    According to this article:
    https://www.railarchive.net/bigboys/index.html

    Union Pacific Big Boy tractive force = 135,375 lbf
    Union Pacific Challenger tractive force = 97,300 lbf

    Usually you want more weight on drivers to increase traction (air foils on racing cars improved tractive performance when they were introduced).
