    I think it is a lathe used for trueing the metal wheels. Does anyone know for sure?

    Cass Scenic Railroad has one too. I think it is a bit bigger, as well.

    Small world. I took these pictures at Cass. It was in the junk train row in front of the rental houses.

    The Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, MI also has one that was in the old Ann Arbor Ry. shops. Not operational at present. I have been told it needs a rebuild.
