Hi everybody!

I'd like to ask you guys about a doubt. Watching The Amazing Race, I didn't understand an expression. Contestants had to catch a Vitnamese train for a 24-hour ride, and, upon finding out about it, a contestant said: beefy ride.



I'm guessing grueling ride?

    Were any cattle transported on that train? Unless the train was hauling cattle or beef, I can't think of any reason to call it a "beefy ride."

    I've heard "beefy" used as a loose synonym for "powerful", "muscular" and "sturdy", but that definition doesn't seem to make much sense in the context that you have provided.
