Quaker Oats in Cedar Rapids, IA
Tyson Foods, Oglethorpe, Ga. Looks like a re-engined Alco S4 equipped for remote-control operation.
Union Pacific's Seattle "Shop Critter"
Spotted this little "Rail King" at the UP's Seattle Diesel house.
Taken 04/14/2011 in Laurinburg, NC on the Laurinburg & Southern:
A few I found on computer!
One of several small diesels, Georgetown Loop Railroad. Silver Plume shops.
Former Kopper pressure treatment plant switcher. Removed from service. Replaced with Track Mobile.
Track Mobile, switching industry, Denver.
US Army switcher. Museum switcher for the Illinois Railroad Museum.
At the Martindale Feed Mill in Valley View, Texas. November, 2017.
Also at the feed mill, this GE 25 ton critter is one of only two former MKT diesel locomotives left. Numbered as 400, it was used at the MKT tie plant in Denison, TX. It is now being restored at the Oklahoma Railway Museum in Oklahoma City.
This EMD SW 8 was US Army 2034 but it has been painted to represent an MKT locomotive and given a number that would have likely been assigned to such an engine if Katy had owned it. It is now at the Oklahoma Railway Museum and used to run excursions.
Odd that the first loco, #147, has the exhaust stacks facing away sideways. Maybe away from the building so to not send out sparks to the building?
Love the Katy painted switcher!!
Two critters as spotted at Ringoes, NJ on the Black River & Western in the early 1980s -- a Mack built in '27 and a Davenport. I don't think either was operable at the time, but the li'l Mack actually toted two passenger cars on a fun "Director's Special" when the road was new and had to stop several times to avoid overheating.
I believe they call the "shunters" in the UK. August 1, 2003
