Railgrinder sitting in Missouri Valley, IA
Reports are its going to head south from Missouri Valley, IA when traffic allows. In Omaha it will head South on the Falls City Sub, again when traffic allows.
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...
Suprise of the year was a Loran Rail grinder sneeking up the Rails 8 miles North of Station Seattle WA
