Western Digital Train

Western Digital Train

We spotted this train chugging along across the tracks on a Western Digital hard drive controller chip. This is the third train we have discovered on integrated circuits, but it is by far the longest and has the most cars (including a caboose). The other two trains are the runaway train by LeCroy, and "the little engine that could" by Allen-Bradley.
