Railroad track inspection vehicles.

Track inspection vehicles in Keystone, South Dakota

As I’ve said before, we get all kinds of vehicle clubs in the Black Hills. This is a group of track inspection cars that took over the 1880 Train Tracks in Keystone in September 2014. These inspection vehicles are now obsolete on railroads because track inspection duties are now done from specially equipped pick-up trucks.

 

 

One of the more enjoyable aspects of living in the Black Hills is that we get to see lots of unusual vehicles. And these track inspection cars that took over 1880 Train tracks in Keystone in September are some of our favorites.

Nearly a dozen of these took to the tracks for seven runs over a three day period.  These cars are now obsolete on rail roads because nowadays track inspection is done from specially equipped pick-up trucks.
