Acrobatic trains in the USA

In this series of 2 episodes we see diesel locomotives in action in the United States of the Maumee & Western Railroad (MAW). In the first episode we see a diesel locomotive with freight cars riding on the track where the train seems to "hang" in the track. In the second episode we see a MAW 4 locomotive wobbling over the tracks of the shunting yard. That is the reason why we gave this series the title “acrobatic trains”, because it seems that these trains are acrobats to stay on track.
