• Short Summary

    New method is used to speed up the laying of cables.

  • Description

    Sweden.

    "More mechanical marvels to minimise hard work." Swedish State Railways are using a new method to speed up the laying of the cables needed for the electrification of the line.

    A trench is dug by one machine as the train moves along, another machine "somewhat reminiscent of a plough" is coupled to the train and the heavy cable is laid in the trench.

    Various shots of this process.
