I think it is a lathe used for trueing the metal wheels. Does anyone know for sure?
Yes. There is one saved in a Mexican old roundhouse that has been re-purposed..photos here on TB somewhere...I've seen them.
Hope someone saves it!
This is the way we do it now, some different.
Or on the locomotive from the bottom.
I've seen one in the Ely Nevada maintenance shop.
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.
