Absolutely not glass. Building a huge steam Engine in Canada in 1928. Turn off the sound. It's a silent movie.

Amazing. I loved that power hammer forging the push rods.

I am hoping to take VIA rail from Halifax to Vancouver in the next 18 months. I did it as a boy. It's the last great train ride in this hemisphere. I got to do so many. There's a great travel article on it in the Washington Post today.

I was noticing how slowly the boring mills were running, no carbide tooling.
