Engineering's cool!

I do have a lot of posts stored up—some inspired by the two weeks I have just spent in the USA, some not—but whilst I attempt to pull my thoughts together, here is a video of a train laying its own track.



So cool! And illustrative of the concept that human creativity is largely untrammelled...

My vehicles are pretty specialised and so very costly. It boggles the mind how much one of those mofos would set a business back!

Definitely cool though, big industrial mechanised metal always is. :)

"Engineering's cool!" tell the politicians that. If you're manipulating machinery rather than figures on a spreadsheet it seems you have no worth to them.

Not as if manufacturing in this country is valued at twice that of the financial sector in terms of GDP.
