Especially since the plow will probably be used with trailing units, it may simply need to move itself around terminals and wyes and only one motor would be needed.I'd have guessed it'd move itself for positioning, but be coupled to another locomotive for plowing. Would be nice to have someone in the plant though, yup. Looks like they've been working with rotaries for a while too: http://www.relcolocomotives.com/index_f ... otives.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (Also, are those F-units in the background of that photo?)
It would be nice to have someone familiar with the unit to comment. I'm amazed that it has flown under the radar for so long.
