A high-speed rail line that takes passengers from Paris to Amsterdam has just gotten some solar bling. A two-mile portion of the track is now enclosed in a solar panel-covered tunnel.
The stretch of track is located near Antwerp, Belgium. A shelter was constructed around that piece of track to shield the trains from falling trees and debris while passing through a protected forest and then 16,000 solar panels were placed on top to make the most of the tunnel.
