GM’s luxury brand just can’t buy a break. Maybe I should rephrase that… [hat tip to Nick for the link]

    These photos were provided by user Stan Kamienski who wrote "Walked out of the office and a train went by trying to stop with a Cadillac on the front of it." That's funny.

    Usta Bee : January 31st, 2009 at 7:47 am Does the engineer sit on the opposite side of British trains, which side are the throttle and brake on ?. In the USA, the engineer sits and controls the locomotive on the right side. The fireman, if there are still any around (and unnecessary in a modern diesel-electric locomotive), sits on the left. In the UK, I'm not so sure.

      In the UK trains 'drive' on the left, like cars. The driver, however, sits in the left of the cab. This is mainly so he can conveniently enter and exit the locomotive on the safe station platform or lineside verge side of the train, rather than the dangerous opposing line side.

    I can see what the old man driving that Caddy would be saying. "Ethel, I think we made a wrong turn!"
