Watch a Train Get Assembled for the Subway

Seeing a train get assembled is a lot like watching someone play with Lego bricks, only if that someone was God and the Lego bricks were stupid ginormous. This timelapse of a London Elizabeth line train being built out at Bombardier in Derby is especially cool because it seems like pieces and parts are just flying together.


In reality, 500 people work on these trains every week to put together 50 miles of cabling and 5 miles of welding. That’s a lot of work for just playing with Lego.



Speaking as an American, what’s a “new train?”
