Bit'O'Gristle: Holy shiat, the engineering alone of doing that boggles the mind. Was the whole weight of that ship supported on that tiny rail? Wow.

The ship sections were on, as far as I could tell, three full-sized rail beds that ran the length of the ship.  You can put a lot of pressure on rails, especially with the very slow-moving nature of that job minimizing the dynamic stresses on it.

Iszael: I'd have liked to have seen some of the "hooking it all back together" and a heck of a lot less painting.

As it was, meh, it was kind of cool..

It would have been cool to see an interior shot of piping systems meeting up to their new analogs on the extended sections.  However, I have to give this video credit for making the watching of paint dry seem interesting to me.
