Have you ever wondered what was inside that locomotive rumbling by on the train tracks? You voted yes so we went to Grove City, Pennsylvania, where locomotive engines are manufactured and put together piece by piece. Watch how people and machines work to assemble high powered train engines from start to finish through the lens of our mini helicopter camera. This bird’s eye view of GE engineers at work really puts the intricacies of each engine into perspective, so take a moment to appreciate all the moving parts the next time you board a train!
