as there doesn't seem to be an active train thread here's mine

recently i've been reading up on Jamaica's railways and it's an incredibly cavalcade of failtrains;

-initially the engines they purchased didn't have enough power to climb the 1-in-40 grades so they had to quadruple-head them
-during the late 1800s it was sold off to americans who re-equipped it with american stock and operating standards. this lead to the railroads maintaining 2 different fleet of knuckle/AAR-equipped stock and buffer and chain stock
-the railroad nearly never turned a profit; but continued purchasing locomotives there wasn't really any clear use for
-the railroad was built to a full size and standard gauge; considering the mountain climbing it had to do this was seen as a mistake

anyway any other railfans wanna rise up

(posting this here coz trains are vehicles, if it's the wrong choice just tell me)
