I have seen engines pulling freight in Guelph, which is laced with tracks to and from factories, that produce far more smoke than that when accelerating. By the smell of them I guess that locomotive diesel is still full of sulphur.

Ontario Southland??? I saw one of their trains in Guelph about 3 years ago. The engine didn't seem to be very healthy.

I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

Funny meme. Though the pic appears doctored (other than the VW logo). The exhaust seems to have a high steam and perhaps coal smoke content, which modern diesel engines don't produce. Unless the locomotive (I'm not familiar with the make) is a diesel or oil steam engine. These locomotives are rare...and essentially used diesel or oil burners to replace coal.

Some Russian trains still use coal...mostly in stoves to heat passenger cars.

It is a Class 37 Diesel Locomotive from England, just look for it on You Tube, with the word clag in the search, you will see that this is quite normal for this class of Loco.
