Although I've long since retired my Tonka Toys, I still love the sight of big machines in action. We were in the Blue Mountains this weekend and stopped in Katoomba for dinner. As we got out of the car, I noticed an interesting looking machine throwing impressive sparks off the nearby train tracks. I initially thought it was a derailed train car being dragged down the track, but on closer inspection realised that it was a SPENO Rail Grinder in action. When it came back for its second pass a few minutes later, I was ready with my camera and had already gotten along this fence to get a better look. Above is my YouTube video of the SPENO in action.
