A man has successfully managed to pull a train along a railway line using nothing but his body strength. Not sure either it is part of some record breaking attempt.

Adnan Ismail al-Awad, a Syrian strongman, pulled a train packed with passengers, that he claims weighs over 100 tonnes thanks to an incline, using nothing but muscle power. The extraordinary feat was witnessed by a large number of people at Kadam train station in the capital of Syria, Damascus.

Its length is 20 meters and it weighs 2.5 tonnes. But when we pull something on an incline it becomes heavier. So it becomes more than 100 tonnes - Adnan

After getting into his harness, and positioning himself over the tracks, he began to tug the train. The wheels moved, and Awad managed to pull it along the rusty line.
