Exploding watermelons can teach us a lot about the future of trains. So can water balloons. And you’ll never enjoy a challenging game as much as our take on train switching. They’re all part of the latest GE Show - the future of railroads at: http://www.ge.com/thegeshow/rails/Trains have a cherished place in our imagination, and the sight of winding tracks reminds us of the romance travel once had. But trains are no throwback - they’re thoroughly modern and ready for a future of moving people and cargo with efficiency and speed. Let’s see how.
Efficiency can take many forms - we’re working on nifty new technologies like hybrid trains, but efficiency can also come from new ways of thinking. You’ll learn how GE’s train switching technologies work with a fast-paced game that’ll test your reflexes. You’ll also see a stunning super slow-motion video that illustrates the idea of regenerative braking with exploding fruit, and play with a madlibs-style trip calculator that gives you a glimpse of the potential of rails. It’s a fun way of learning all about a very contemporary form of transportation. All aboard!
