Robots for the railways

Now that Russia is officially part of the Technocracy, their robot rulers are taking over more and more of the everyday maintenance. Apparently the Russian rail system (Motto: “If it worked in the 1950s, it will still work today.”) has hired robots to do most of the track maintenance and give presentations about the Great Bear’s delightfully archaic railways. Best of all, the robots can give presentations rather than the oligarchs, leaving them time and money to hire busty, gazelle-like models to take to Tunisia.
