Have you seen that reality TV show, Railroad Alaska? Anyone interested in heavy equipment will be fascinated by the portrayal of all the big machines that are needed to keep the railroad functional. And it’s true that for many folks, the railroad is the lifeline of communication through the wilderness. Of course, the directors seem to think that “human drama” is what sells the show, but I bet a lot of viewers watch because they love watching big machinery get a job done right. Who wouldn’t want to watch a cannon blast an avalanche loose so the excavator can move it off the tracks?
The show demonstrates something that many often miss; it takes a lot of different types of machinery to do things. In this case, a railroad is more than trains. Businesses often rely on more types of heavy equipment than most people realize. This is why ATS offers Specialized Training.
