Watch a Train Get Assembled for Crossrail

By Casey Chan on at

Seeing a train get assembled is a lot like watching someone play with Lego, only if that someone was God and the Lego was stupidly large. This timelapse of a Crossrail 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 five miles of welding. That’s a lot of work for just playing with Lego.
