The first way to do it is to first melt the filler material that is needed to join the two parts of the railroad and the other choice is to melt the end of those two parts of the railroad and then press with force to join them.We invite you to check out the video we brought for you today,filmed in Sweden,and you’ll find everything you need about this cool technique to weld a railroad.Share it with your friends as well.Enjoy!
