Re: TRAINS - Correction

do you have similar figures for barges or big ships? They are even more

Not off hand, this will have to wait for the next trip to the big city
bookstore, or trip to the library to see if they have the book; and to see
if the book listed figures for those means of conveyance.


I went on a cruise across the Atlantic to Africa to view an eclipse back in
'73. I remember in the general info on the ship that was presented in the
tours for the passengers was a figure on the amount of fuel per foot for
the Canberra. We were told the ship's boilers burned the sludge from
refineries left over after all the gasoline, etc. was extracted from the
crude oil. Maybe a search on ship lines could get at the address of
someone who could give the current values of the data.
