FACT CHECK: Train simulation video shared as railway system in Israel

HYDERABAD: A video of a train moving along tracks made on a pyramid-like structure is viral on social media. Users claim that it is an engineering marvel from Israel.

"A beautiful example of engineering, this rail track is in the country of Israel, which covers a distance of 1280 km from Urpara to Begun Jarra with logistics material, in which way this train passes over 13 such pyramids. This technique is very amazing and useful," reads the caption.


FACT CHECK:

The claim is false.

Newsmeter noticed the text `Daffa Railfans ID' in the video and searched online for similar videos. We found that the same video was uploaded on the YouTube channel `Daffa Railfans ID' on September 21. The description of the video clearly states that the video is made for entertainment purposes. "All Videos Only Happens In The Game," reads the description.

The section of the YouTube channel reads that `Daffa Railfans ID' is a train channel that posts videos on a 2019 train simulator game.


Several other similar YouTube videos were also found. In all these videos, trains moved along tracks made on a pyramid-like structure. They were train simulators.

Furthermore, NewsMeter could not find any news reports on such a structure being made in Israel's Urpara or Begun Jarra. No reports were found on the pyramid railway track.

Evidently, a video simulation from a game is being shared as the real railway system in Israel. Thus, the claim is false.

Claim Review:Video shows the real railway system in Israel; a train that covers a distance of 1280 km from Urpara to Begun Jarra and passes over 13 such pyramids.
