Railfan Pictures of the Week - 09/19/2004

CSX Trenton Line Woodbourne PA September 13 2004
Loram Rail Grinder RG311 was working Track 1 between CP Wood and CP Wing. A previous page of pictures can be found here.
The cab unit on RG 311.
Notice the sprayers, probably water to keep down the sparks.
The grinders are next. From the trucks it looks like the guts of the motive power are EMD.
In the middle a unit that appears to hold the fuel tanks (probably would not want them near the grinders).
Behind that, more grinders.
Following the grinders are a couple of tank cars to provide water for the sprayers.
On the hind end, a caboose with personnel on the rear, ready to douse any fires.
