The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

CSX cribber machine

This was one of the most dangerous machines used as this machine grinded the wood ties to make a smooth platform for the new rail. If a tie plate was still attached this machine could throw it many feet like a frisbee. I was told this machine threw a spike into a side of a house.
