To those of you who say Islamic culture is lost in the thirteenth century, Iran says, “Hah!” To prove that it’s not true, the nation has introduced early 20th century technology – its first diesel locomotive.

Fars News reports:

Iran on Tuesday unveiled the first diesel-engine locomotive, produced by the country’s experts, in a ceremony attended by First Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi.

After unveiling the diesel engine locomotive, Rahimi was briefed on the potentialities of this national achievement gained by the Iranian experts.

This diesel locomotive has been produced at the cost of 77 billion rials and it is about 3,710 kilos in weight.

Its engine power is rated at 1,000 kW per minute.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is particularly proud of this technological achievement and will reportedly celebrate by using the powers of the presidency to force engineers to blow the horn as they pass him at railway crossings.

Whooooo whooooo!

I wonder if Petticoat Junction is one of their stops? I could get off the train in Hooterville, hitch a ride with Mr. Haney to the Shady Rest Hotel and visit Mr. and Mrs. Douglas at Green Acres.
