Photo of 3d printed train components3D printing has made worked its way up from model railroading to real railroads! For this week's post, I'm sharing an artible about British train leasing company is piloting 3D printed components for the interior of their rail cars. The idea is to use this method as a way to create replacement parts that are no longer mass produced. This would hopefully increase the life expectancy of their rolling stock by allowing them to remain usable longer.
