Train out of Kladno

Get the fuck outta here FAST! OK so I figured out who it was. It was Wittgenstein's father Karl who built Poldi Kladno Steelworks at the end of the 19th century. This man, although not only a powerhouse of the Austro-Hungarian industrial movement but also a friend of Carnegie, Klimt and the Vienna secessionists, has more or less been relegated to the dustbin of history. 3 of his sons committed suicide and one went on to become a famous philosopher.
