Race the Train with Steam Speed (Video)

Have you ever seen two trains racing? Well, look no further as the video above is your answer. A wonderfully animated video showcases two steam engines, one in black the other in red, racing in front of an audience, and that too in Formula 1 style (notice the pit crew at start). Titled Steam Speed, this new video above is produced by Digital Light Studio. It is about 4 minutes and 44 seconds in length and is totally entertaining.

Speaking about train racing, the closest we have heard racing and trains together, is the annual cross-country running event – Race the Train. During this, racers from all across the globe run to compete with a steam train, which plies a distance of 14 miles (23 km) on the Talyllyn Railway. For 2014, the race will take place on 16th August. Entries are now open, and you can fill them at website.
