Working the elevator II by classictrains Working the elevator II by classictrains
An OLD Whiting Trackmobile used for spotting one or two cars at the CO-OP grain elevator. It can drop the tires and roll sideways off the rails to avoid the need for run-around track moves.

Looks like a cross between a tractor, & plymouth switcher.

Believe it or not what you are looking at is a real commercial product. It is not someone's garage nightmare. :-)

I can believe it, I think that the Southeastern Railway Museum has one. They are very odd little things, but very useful.

Why does that Engine have a E Shelf Coupler? Those were suppose to be for Tankers only?

That's a very interesting question. I can only guess that perhaps it was used at one time to switch tanks at an oil industry. Perhaps in south Texas. Just guessing!

Ick, I'm deadly allergic to cigarette smoke. Wise move staying away from the elevators, too! *pictures a mushroom cloud*
