Wonder what thier on the job injury rate was. Sadly, there are a lot of manufacturing plants in countrys that still work that way.

Turkish coal mine disaster. 301 dead. Life is still very hard and dangerous for some people.

Cool video. Those engines could go 80 mph. W/O them The US and Canada would not be what they are now.

That is an amazing video well worth the time to watch it. I spent several years as a construction contractor in both a steel foundry and a forge & die operation. The work and resulting precision that goes into some of those projects is amazing.
