Remarks & Notes 
This is a microcosm of the global economy: On Norfolk Southern's Appalachia District main line at Big Stone Gap, VA (USA), the "south" rail--a 136 pound section--was rolled by British Steel at Workington, Cumbria (England) in 1986---and the "north" rail---a 132 pound section---was rolled by Japan's Nippon Steel in 1988. Five minutes later, a single unit--a GE product built in Erie, PA---rolled westward across these two rails.
