CSX Plasser American

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
This much-used Plasser American unit was parked a little south of Dante (winter, 2015).  I think it’s used to replace ties.  There was a lot of that going on at the time.
Note that the just-completed Gotthard Base tunnel in  Switzerland uses concrete ties, very closely grouped.
