Chinese Rail Road

As recently as 1980, the Chinese were rocking this locomotive in their system. Now, they are rocking the bullet trains. Although not without grief--corruption and graft marred the building process and three folks just got canned for not taking care of an electric train that had been laying dead on the tracks due to being struck by lightening, and was run into by another train, resulting in loss of life.
