Pullers and Movers

At the Bell County Coal Company (now a Revelation Energy outfit) near Middlesboro KY, these two yard units were sitting idle.
I think this is a variation of an ALCO RS-2 EMD GP-series locomotive (see the comment below):

And this is a mobile railcar mover…not moving anytime soon, though:

    The locomotive is an EMD GP-series locomotive, by the looks of it, a GP-7, GP-9, GP-18, or GP-20. They dynamic brake blister gives it away. The rail car mover is a “Track-mobile”, which are still made to this day.
