trucks stories

You know why we don't have battery-powered trains? It's because having battery-powered trains would be a silly idea. When you have something that just goes from point A to point B over and over, it makes more sense to make electricity available over the entire stretch, and Siemens is going to try that idea out with trucks on highways.
How do you get building equipment to a remote location in the Swiss Alps before there's a road to the site? With cables, of course! A fleet of giant excavator trucks are being 'flown' through the canton of Valais via cable railway. We particularly love the sight of this Astra HD8 480 hp, 8x6 against such a gorgeous mountain backdrop.
