In this thread there is a reference to a movie.  I missed that link, and have reviewed almost all the messages, but unless I accidentally deleted a post, I can’t find that link.
Did I misunderstand?

The only information I have on this Life Magazine photo is a caption that says " The World's Longest Cable" and a date of March 1951:
The man in the photo is welding something and the cars are connected by a chain as well as couplers.

Factory interior (Okonite, Patterson, NJ):
So, anybody know the story behind the photos?
