A behavioral contradiction in relativity theory at the edge of inertial systems

A moving train wagon fitted with a printer at each end that simultaneously prints dots on the rail makes the consequences of Lorentz transformations tangible. A lot of such wagons that form a full circular train, being a symmetrical rotating system, makes it clear that, within the scope of Lorentz transformations, the behavior of a moving inertial system is incompatible with that of an infinitely small part of a rotating system, even though there are no differences between these two systems to account for it.
