Overhauling a Steam Locomotive

Saw this cool video on Boing Boing and had to share it.

This describes the process of overhauling a British steam locomotive.  It's fascinating to watch the craftsmen going about their work.  Obviously steam trains require a tremendous investment in man-hours.  According to the video, this entire process had to be repeated every 130,000 miles.  Ouch!

I don't care though.  They are still incredibly cool machines :)
