Planes on a Train

Wednesday, 2nd May 2007 by

Driving past the small town of Cathcart is a train, carrying the fuselages of 4 Boeing 737 airliners!

As the train is passing a road I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to reference a classic Steve Martin film, so in the thumbnail below you can see Planes, Trains & Automobiles1.

The planes started their journey at the Boeing factory in Everett and are headed for Clayton Scott Field in Renton, where they will be assembled. In 2001 it was estimated that 40% of all commercial aircraft in the air were assembled here.
