“No. 6207 A Study in Steel” is a 1935 documentary about the processes required to build a steam engine, it starts with bare sheet metal and shows you all the major tasks that are performed to turn those sheets into a fully functioning steam train.
Anyone who has even a passing interest in vehicles or engineering should give this one a watch, it’s only 17 minutes long and the entire process is genuinely fascinating.
Articles that Ben has written have been covered on CNN, Popular Mechanics, Smithsonian Magazine, Road & Track Magazine, the official Pinterest blog, the official eBay Motors blog, BuzzFeed, Autoweek Magazine, Wired Magazine, Autoblog, Gear Patrol, Jalopnik, The Verge, and many more.
