Indian man pulls 40-ton train with ponytail
September 19, 2012 (WEST BENGAL, India) (WLS) -- An Indian man gives the term "training your hair" a new meaning.
Sailendra Roy broke a world record on Monday by pulling a 40-ton train with nothing but his ponytail.
The 49-year-old man pulled the train engine and four empty coaches about 8 feet down the tracks in West Bengal.
Roy already has records for pulling other heavy vehicles -- like trucks and buses -- with his hair.
He is hoping to get this attempt in the Guinness Book of World Records.
