The post-industrial landscape is here to stay.
And in many ways, it’s here to last.
That is the message from Tealink, the Scottish company which has just completed the world’s first automated railway, the Tealock.
The Tealocking has been named after a teal, a type of native American bird, in honour of the first person to successfully operate the first rail line across the English Channel.
Its name derives from the word teal meaning “green” and a shipyard, or shipyard.
Built by Tealark, a company owned by the Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the railway will provide the world with its first fully automated railway in the next five years.
The first passengers will be on the Teapot station in Edinburgh on January 5.
The journey from London to Edinburgh will take about a week and a half, and it will be a new experience for many passengers.
The company is using a combination of technology and hand tools to make the journey.
“We’re taking this journey as a human,” says Andrew Wilson, head of Tealinks operations.
“It’s not a train or an electric vehicle.
It’s just a passenger train.”
The Teapots station will be one of several that will be built by the company.
It is the second rail line to be built in the UK in the last decade, following the £2.2 billion High Speed Rail Line, which runs between Birmingham and London.
Wilson says the technology will not only improve safety but it will also improve the lives of passengers.
“I’ve always felt that trains are an important part of the future,” he says.
The idea for the Teayock was developed in a project called “Pioneering Teal”, led by a team of scientists led by the University of Edinburgh. “
The technology will allow us to do that.”

The scientists developed a method for extracting copper from copper ore using robots and computers.
In the past, these machines have taken millions of hours to extract a particular mineral.
“This is a new, exciting technology,” says Wilson.
“Our aim is to be in the business of extracting copper in one way or another.”
The company, which has received the contract from the Department for Transport to construct the Teashock, says the teak will be “in the public domain” and the company will be able “to go out and find copper from anywhere in the world”.
The Teakock is not the first automated train in the US.
In January, a railway operator in Ohio named Ohio Valley Transportation announced it had been awarded a $1.6 million contract to build a similar automated train.
The project is still under way and will be completed by the end of the year.
The US is a long way from being the world leader in rail technology, but there is still hope for the future.
In November, the UK government announced a £3 billion project to create a rail system to link London and New York, which will be called the Central New York Rail Link.
The route will run between London and Paris.
The rail link will be an extension of the London Underground, and the journey from New York to Paris will be the equivalent of about 20 minutes.
The Government’s £1.4 billion plan to build an automated railway across the Atlantic will be rolled out in 2018.
