^^ Hey... why stop there? why not electric trains? ^^
You are aware that trains are electric, right? They run diesel generators and use electric drive axles, the original “hybrid”. Streetcars, subways, and the like are pure electric.
What I am waiting for is a tandem dumptruck, or snow plow that is all electric.
I’m waiting on the first electric 747.
I knew that, just never understood it, not being an electrician or an engineer or physicist. I always thought that when you convert energy from one form to another that there is a net loss and therefore it would make more sense to run them directly with diesel engines. Is it just not practical for some reason?
I'm dead serious and would appreciate any explanation offered.
