    ...as Talgo units are short and low-slung. They have one pair of wheels that the next car end rests on. The only downside to a Talgo trainset is that they take a bit more effort to assemble and change, but aren't as inflexible as the old articulated Zephyrs. An automotive assembly line could more easily be repurposed for assembling Talgo carbodies than it could for standard size streamliners. If the demand grows, GM may get back into the railcar business!
