    2010 Renault F1 car in the 2017 livery in Iasi, Romania. I'm a bit pissed because on their site they claimed that it's a real 2017 car then they told me on Twitter than they only have 2 real 2017 cars and use them in races.

    What is a CFR Draisine?

    I recently was laid off from the railroad. Was employed as a conductor, then engineer, and finally remote operation conductor. The company installed remote control systems on an older model switch engine and we used a newer switch engine for increased pulling and braking power. I was skeptical of the remote at first, but I won't lie; it was fun and much more efficient. I was able to control the engines with extreme precision, partially due to how accurate and responsive the controls were. The largest caveat being that it was much more difficult and dangerous when getting off and on moving equipment (rail cars); maneuverability was hampered substantially. With the remote, I could land quite easily at 10 mph. Without the remote, I could do 15. Catching and climbing was also hindered, easily the most dangerous part. Kicking cars was the greatest benefit. I could kick a set of cars down one track, throw the switch and kick another set down another track, catch a ride and pull out before either sets had made joints. Saved a lot of time and it's much more difficult with a dedicated engineer.

    Well, I guess you know what a Draisine is. CFR is the Romanian national operator :)
