So, the magazine «Popular mechanics» resulted the following citation from the newspaper “Hooter” from 1958: «Certainly, the nuclear locomotive will be much heavier than a steam locomotive or a diesel locomotive of the same capacity. But if such locomotive to direct on the remote highway, for example to Arctic regions it will work there with breaks during the whole winter season without additional supply. It is very easy for transforming into mobile power station. Besides, it can supply with energy of a bath, laundries, hotbeds for cultivation of vegetables».

Besides, in the mid-fifties in a local press wrote that, it is possible, fast in the USA will create the nuclear vacuum cleaner.
