they will be kept parked at Mt. Clemens this weekend? It would be nice to photograph freight trains passing the Loram® equipment!!!! :mrgreen:


Correction - it's not a LORAM work train, it's HERZOG. It's parked for the night in the dock track in Mount Clemens. Don't know if they work tomorrow.

I saw it on the siding in Mt. Clemens today, Sat. 4-27!!!! This equipment is not my "Favorite," but it's interesting! Yes, it's HERZOG®! The "Confusion" was the name "Loram®!!!!"
