Road transferable locomotive

I reckon some confusion would occur for the average motorist when seeing this cross in front of you for the first time at a grade crossing.

very interesting. never seen a semi turned into a loco like that. but its light and easy to move between tracks where there is little or round about connections. never seemed to pan out well as a loco like this.

Some of the bridges apparently could not take full loco weight and also there was desire to move the rtl units to other lines quickly where there was not an easy path to move the loco over via rail lines.
