Washin' the Windows by factorone33 Washin' the Windows by factorone33
Sully =sullivan1985:iconsullivan1985:, Traci ~labrat-78:iconlabrat-78: and Hoyt ~HerrDrayer:iconherrdrayer: can all relate to this one. Here, the engineer for a westbound manifest throws some water on the windshield of this Union Pacific C45AC-CTE #5552 while waiting for a track warrant to head west out of the Salina, Kansas yard. The brakeman is heading off to "water the flowers".

Check the full-view for the water action.

Actually, the engineer is washing the window, while the conductor is standing inside. The brakeman, well, that's self-explanatory. ;P

I know about trains but not to much. What does "Water The Flowers" mean?

"Water the Flowers" is a euphemism for taking a piss. ;)

Nothing at all to do with trains. ;P

I've heard somewhere, that the only locomotives with toilest "on board" are russian diesels ST44 (that's PKP sign, I have no idea about Russian or German). But in USSR they've had loooooong routes. :-)

Most of the modern GEs and EMDs have them for the very same reasons, though most units that aren't traveling on double-track transcons tend to have plenty of opportunities for the crews to stop and take a leak. ;P
