Funny...because there's a factory in The Dalles that does this every single day. But it's not in The Oregonian.There was also a "factory" (a mobile welding facility) in Independence that did this same thing for awhile... Union Pacific has special "welded rail trains" that the rails are loaded into and then roll off the train where they are to be installed.
Do those mark the milestone of a major project?
Does TriMet's weld mark a milestone of a project?No.It's about the same as the Transcontinental Railroad celebrating that they jointed a rail somewhere in St. Louis. Funny how nobody celebrates that or even recalls it, but sure as heck everyone knows what happened May 10, 1869 somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Utah.
