Train makes Tracks

All right, so I've been a little fascinated by trains lately. (Have you ever noticed how many movies feature trains? A lot!)

And though we've all heard the stories about how the immigrants laid the train tracks from east to west and ultimately helped make America great, take a look at how train tracks can be laid today--the train can lay its own track! Five fascinating minutes.

That was really fascinating, Angie. My first thought went to American ingenuity, until I saw that the film title appears to be in German. I would love to see the complete process, i.e., how the track itself is extended and laid as they progress. Is there a longer version of this film? Clyde

That is so interesting. And when I see something like that I always wonder how they designed and made the machine!
