Cool! Does it provide power or is it pulled by a cable? It's pushing some heavy cars up a pretty steep grade.

On the front end (right side of picture) is a stout cable coming out from under the ... thingamajig. Looks like it is essentially a nearly flat elevator.

Looks like it would be used for a HUMP yard. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/satisfied.gif What exactly were you looking for on the 'net when you came across this diddy? /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif

They are called rabbits and were used to move car around some industries and car repair facilities. I wonder if they just reverse the process to get they back down?
