    Rotory snow plow:

    these things are incredibly huge, check the people for a size referance. They are pretty impresive to see in action.

    Wreckage removal crane:


    some shots from inside the cockpit of a 2003 up unit:







    This thisng was kinda wierd, as far as i could tell, it was powered by a golf cart motor and converted to run on rails. i have no idea what it is used for, and i dont know who built it or when it was done:



    that is all the decent shots of the intrest equipment i got. i have a ton more (toltal of 106 pictures) but alot of them didnt turn out well and some are equipment that isnt all that uncommon to see rollin

    naw, the thing wasnt even running, i would imagine that having it running while there 200 people walking freely around the yard where ever they damn well feel like, would be a safty issue. the only thing that was even running was the up unit that i got the inside pictures from.

    from what i understand, the plows are converted engines. insted of using the power to move a line, it spins that huge rotor. it needs an ac unit or two behind it to push it through the seirra snow pack since it cant move an inch on its own.

    i tryed to get a shot of that thing, but they wouldnt let me get very close to it, since there were live tracks with live trains over near it, but i got a good look, who knows what the problem with it was, but both axels and wheel sets where removed and straped down to the same flat car that the box was on. there was also some pretty shitty peice attemps on the box.

    i used it to travel about 15 feet, and while its a bit faster than walking, i wouldnt want to go 2 miles on it. more work than you would think.
