Thorium molten salt steam trains will be awesome. What would be great is to have a specialised prime mover, with extra traction, for steep uphill sections. Jay Leno is never better than when talking about his cars. His comedy deal appears to be a reluctant money-making sideline. Its his cars that seem to motivate him. He's got at least two or three steam cars. He points out that every move with steam is a power move. So his gigantic, really heavy steam car, doesn't need gears. Or lets say its single geared. Its like starting off in fourth gear and the power is such he calls it the "hand of God." Trains going uphill only seem to be weak. They struggle not because of lack of power. But more because of lack of traction. Diesel is more efficient than steam and very powerful. But steam can allow even more power. To my mind water phase change power is the greatest power in the Universe. I think thats what can make stars and planets explode. Its certainly the force behind super-volcanos. My thinking is that when moons grow to planets grow to gas giants, grow to stars, grow to bigger stars, I say that the stars never lose their oceans. I think the very strange behaviour of the sun (and stars) comes from its still existing ocean. Water phase change is like magic, the way it absorbs or releases thermal energy. People end up getting obsessive and fascinated with steam as a result. So I hope thorium salt causes steam to make a big comeback.
But it must be remembered that the deep state will derail thorium any way they can. So any plan to reform our energy sector has to take that into account. And therefore every power available to a government has to be applied to this problem, or we lose. Simple as that. You can let your normal individual have free speech on this matter. But bankers, public servants, and big businessmen ..... No these are largely welfare queens and they better toe the line or face employment sanctions, the exact same way they have sanctioned us. Believe me these villains will be okay. Whereas others who have been abused by them may not.
