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.
