Railroad Progress Moves Along

A logging machine takes a turn and then heads right down the railroad tracks today in South Deerfield, MA.

I watched this giant logging machine chew small sticks and move big logs around by the railroad tracks. The current project adding continuous rail track includes lots of tree removal. This guy had just finished his work and he swung the big six-wheeler right up over the tracks, the 3′ wide tires easily just bounced right over the tracks.

I am curious about the machine that will lift the tracks up and put in the new continuous rail and sidings, I saw a new machine parked in South Deerfield that appeared to be just off the factory shelf. It has picks that are about a track’s width wide. So this might be what I’m looking for.
