Further information
"In serried lines they stood - first one for Russia - then one for France - and on the other side several for ourselves - and I said, 'Why this is Ford's idea!' for the parts came in at the sides of the shop and the finished engine went out at the end. 'Oh yes!' said the manager,'only we have been doing it twenty years.' Now they build a locomotive in four days." -- Joseph Pennell
