The width of the body is about the gage of the track. There are several plows between the trucks and this perhaps indicate its purpose. It was also labled that it was dedicated to a Mr. Pappas. If anyone knows any further information I would be interested.

That is a flanger. It is used in the winter to clear the snow out of the guage of the tracks.
