BLYTKEVTLLE (AEK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, MAT It, IfM New York Central Fight Spotlights Revolutionary Trains rr 'VT~-vm-- ,-., ,„,, ) . MU „„,„...., ^ ,.,—, My ,..., •mr^T^ r ^ ) .,My..,.M,.M ,, SPAIN'S TALGO train is in regular service on the 400-mile Irun-Madrid run, which takes ordinary trains 14 hours. Talgo takes eight, rounding curves at 70 mph withoutl urching. PEEK INTO THE FUTURE is given in this •ketch of Train "X," as visualized by its C & O proponents. Insert shows the only completed "X" unit, right. Next to it is adapter car, carrying mechanical equipment that is ordinarily beneath a conventional car. ITALY'S MARTIAN, left, zips over the 600 miles between Naples and Milan at 100 mph and faster. It carries 160 passengers in elegance and comfort. The ultramodernistic train at right is a German diesel job on the route between Hamburg and Basle. Regardless ofthe outcome of the bitter battle for control of the New York Central Railroad between Central President William White and Robert R. Young, Chesapeake & Ohio chairman, the fight has put Young's controversial Train "X" into the spotlight' again. It's Mr. Young's "dream train of the fu- twrt." Admittedly inspired by the "Talgo" trains built by American Car & Foundry for Spanish National Railways, it goes further in revolutionary design. Although five years in development, only one unit has been completed and road-tested. But as visualized, Train "X" would consist of 31-foot cars (conventional passenger car is 85 feet long) each with only two wheels, at the rear. The cars have a ta"ailer-type connection to the car ahead. They are low-slung, the floor being only 10 inches above the l"*ile. "X's" backers claim it can do 125 miles an hour on straightaway and, because of its articulated "snake" design can "Tlow" around curves at 80. Although conservative railroaders are prone to snoot st Train "X," it is a fact that Europe has been ahead of us for years in revolutionary train design. Some of the ultramodern European trains are shown above. Many U. S. railroad men believe that ever- rising operation costs, plus the need of service improvement, will lead to the introduction into regular •ervice of on* or all of these types of trains in this country. GERMANY'S ALWEG train is a test model for monorail operation. It is shown here rounding a curve at high speed. Monorail principle has long fascinated European railroad designers. DYESS NEWS J. 8.
