A COMPOSITE CAR.
Locomotive anil Passenger Car Combined
in one Vehicle.
A novel loea in transportation has just
been materialized by the New England
ra'.lroad, s:iys the Railroad Car Journal,
in the form of a combined puesengei car
and locomotive. An old dining car has
been equipped with i steam motor for the
purpose of using the car in local service
on binnch and suburban lines where t.ie
traffic is not suflieient to warrant *he
running of fully equipped trains. The
fuel used is coke,which is carried iu a 1 in
in the engine room. Water for the boiler
is carried in two long tanks beneath th*
flcor frame of the car, which have a ca?
pacity of 1,500 gllonsa. The fuel and
water capacity is sufficient to rnn sixty
mlies without replenishing. As the train
crew consist* of but two men, while an
ordin?r)' train crew numbers five, it is
anticipated that this composite car will
prove an economical means of handling
the light aud intermittent traffic for
which it was intended.
