TV for dummies
« on: March 05, 2016, 11:19:02 am »
Perhaps you have to have been actually watching to find this funny. I nearly sprayed my coffee.
There is a new (To UK) TV programme on H2 called Engineering Disasters.
One of the accidents shown last night considered a goods train that derailed crossing a swing bridge.
The bridge was later replaced with a lift bridge.
Like something out of the Simpsons.
The construction expert kindly informed the viewers that.

"A vertical lift bridge is one that lifts vertically"

You learn something everyday.
