Russians Built A Turbojet Train In The 1960s

During the heat of the cold war between the Soviet Union and the United States in the 1960s, both countries experimented with the idea of a turbojet train.

It is debated about which country first came up with the idea, but somewhere in time it was decided that strapping jet engines to a normal rail car was a good idea. What was long thought to be destroyed, a Russian turbojet train was found on an abandoned back rail line.
