What Is It?

This was the train parked outside SHR this last week! We never know what is going to show up on our train tracks - but it definitely caught our attention! Anyone know what it is for - and more importantly why is it telling us not to hump????????????????

  1. I saw this too...and my dad used to work for the railroad. So here you go...This is the Herzog MPM (MULTI PURPOSE MACHINE) This versatile MPM maintenance provider easily and safely handles such labor-intensive tasks as picking up, stacking or distributing ties, tie butts, and OTM. No work train is needed for the cost effective MPM, and being self-propelled, just one Herzog employee is required for total operation. The MPM can travel from job-site to job-site at 50 miles-per-hour, or can be put in train service, at the rear end of the train.

    aS for the DO NOT HUMP......I HAVE NO IDEA!!! JEALOUSY?
