Legit questions:

This morning I drove by a locomotive pushing the back of what I presume was a fairly long freight train and it was just dreadfully (read: extremely beautifully) noisy, like it was working at full effort.

1) Is this true, in terms of like the physics of railroads
2) do railroads observe any like difference in maintenance needs of locomotives that end up at the back of the train a lot or is there like a plan to avoid this?

"Dendrite was able to exchange messages with synapse at federation level for some months. It was not possible by following the spec (synapse had bugs in the format of response messages, spec was wrong on fields/endpoints) and must therefore have meant that there was a deliberate choice to implement Dendrite ignoring the spec and instead by copying synapse with all its flaws and bugs. "
