MoW: Herzog Ballast Train

I've already written notes about Georgetown's dump train. These Herzog cars are designed to dump the ballast on the track at a train speed up to 20mph.

(new window)  the link starts at 0:45.  The first several cars have already dumped their load, so you have to go to 1:30 to see the cars that are currently dumping ballast. Note how the car stopped the flow of ballast while it was going over a road crossing.

A mix of the old and new.

Herzog also makes an "automated conveyor train" comparable to Georgetown's dump train.

[There were other views of this washout that they were filling.]
