Monster Grades You Wont Believe These Trains Conquer!
There aren’t many places in the world that you can find grades as steep, as well as frequent as the ones you can find in India!
This clip presents a shocking view into the way train passage is handled in other parts of the world. While it probably isn’t be the most efficient (or wisest) way to lay railroad track, this feat of engineering is rather impressive!
With 23 cars in tow, the length only adds to the difficulty presented by grades!
As the train, lead by a WDP4 GM EMD, makes it’s way towards it’s destination of Bengaluru, Kamataka it approaches a series of two grades in a row which it has no choice but to pass!
Some claim the grades are being manipulated and just look larger than they actually are, although it does seem pretty convincing with the trains wheels appearing to angle appropriately.
Either way, you’ll definitely want to see what happens next for yourself!
