Russians Built a Turbo Jet Train in 1960s
During the heat of the cold war between the Soviet Union and the United States in the 1960s, both countries experimented with the idea of a turbo jet train. It is debated about which country first came up with the idea, but somewhere in time it was decided that strapping jet engines to a normal rail car was a good idea. What was long thought to be destroyed, a Russian turbo jet train was found on an abandoned back rail line.
This very ominous rusted piece of metal would have been state of the art at its time of construction.
