Howdy guys, Brand new here, was told by a UP employee that you guys are pretty knowledgeable.
Basically I was offered a job at LORAM and I have passed my backgrounds and drug test and am waiting on confirmation on a class but was told it would be around JAN 20th... My first question is what...
A pre-historic dinousaur, now working as a vacum on CN!
LORAM LRV-7 aka LMIX 507 Railvac heads to the shops after working Clavet siding. He must be brand new - not in the CTG yet. There are only three like him in North America.
He's so important, he even held up CN's top train, Intermodal 112.
He may be wearing a skirt, but you can still see sparks fly in-between the rails!
Sure looks like a GE 80T from a distance, especially with those dithlights. Althogh he may look dirty, this is actually he's clean side, the other one is covered in grinding dust, or whatever is it this machine...
Finally managed to catch a Railgrinder in action, even though this is the 'mini' version, it's still impressive. Note the camera pointed down at the track, the fire extinguishers on the sides and the bucket on the front porch. Sure looks like a re-worked GE 80T.
Only a few weeks ago these...
