The 747 can carry the equivalent of about 2.7 rail tank-cars worth of fuel....in it's fuel tanks. It could carry some more in it's spacious interior.
So from this you can see how incredibly efficient the rail system is.

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 29, 2015:
Well, the 747-400 can carry a max of 360,000 lbs of usable fuel. How much can one of those rail tank cars carry?

A visitor from Greece posted Tue September 23, 2014:
One wagon of that freight train carries as much fuel as the 747 overflying it...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri August 15, 2014:
So much Americana in one shot. I absolutely love it!

A visitor from United States posted Fri May 16, 2014:
I wonder what the power to freight ratio is.

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 13, 2014:
Love the comparison and contrast of the photo. Remarkable timing to catch both machines in such an excellent orientation to each other.

Shame there wasn't a car parked up on the left there.
Then it would have been Planes, Trains and Automobiles.:)

Amazing! Was surprised when I opened the thumbnail that it was ORD! Thought it was going to be Victorville and this shabby lass was going in for scrapping.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri April 11, 2014:
Excellent catch, more awesome is your informative remarks. Thanks for sharing.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri April 11, 2014:
Five stars for sure! So tired of seeing the cabin interiors and air to air photos (just my opinion)! So refreshing to see some oringinality and luck come together with a beautiful capture like this. All the positive coments are well deserved!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri April 11, 2014:
Nice timing as the heavy swoops over the even heavier. She might win in a race but loses in the cleanliness stakes!

Absolutely brilliant Tao! Lovely light too. -Angad S
