Gratifying Footage of How Railroad Tracks Are Getting Replace These Days

Ever curious as to how railroad tracks get replaced? Well I wasn’t, but this surprisingly gratifying footage of how it’s done nowadays gave me a whole new appreciation for this beast of a machine. Compared to before when men do almost all the work manually, riding pump-handle trolleys and hammering railroad spikes to the ground, this surely can get the job done much more quickly.

Here’s the video… enjoy!
