Working on the Railroad, Literally

Crossing the diamonds of in Durand while testing the rails.

Crossing the diamonds of in Durand while testing the rails.

One in a periodic series of images I made last summer.

Shown is a series of images that I made at Durand Union Station last July. A Herzog Rail Testing Truck arrived at the diamonds of the Holly and Flint subdivisions of Canadian National.

The crew members got out to check by hand the rail in the diamonds. Then they reboarded the truck and off they went on the Holly Sub toward Detroit.

A closeup of a testing shoe, or is it testing wheels?

Back aboard the truck and off we go. The guy with the white helmet is a CN employee.
