...There's even talk of crewless trains being operated by remote control. The technology already exsist today. Just consider the fact that remote/radio controled aircraft have exsisted since the early 1940's during WW2. That is real fullsized airplanes, not toys!Heck, there's already automated crewless trains running, and carrying passengers. Granted these only exist currently as grade-separated light-rail systems, but it's essentially the same idea.

You haven't LIVED until you have to cross over a cut of cars with a lantern, switchlists, tape recorder and one of those old-style "lunchbox" Motorolas with the telephone handset!!! Older railroaders know what I am talking about!
