(1) LORAM RG-17

LORAM railgrinder RG-17 grinding a fresh profile on track 2 near MP 139 in the Hinsdale Flats. Crewmember alights and follows the train on foot every so often to monitor the profile and watch for "hot spots", although with all that "natural fire retardant" lying around, that wouldn't seem to be much of a concern.
