    This may be of interest to UK members as it is unlikely to be accessible elsewhere.

    If you can put up with the typically childish presenters I found this to be quite an interesting look into Derby works today (pity no steam engines though), the manufacture of aluminium and the first electric railway in the UK.

    A glimpse into the HS2 tunneling activities from casting the tunnel segments and a tunnel boring machine included.
