    Seems to be a Tug built to push or pull maybe reverse forklift style chassis also appears to be solid tires a little out of place on gravel. Maybe something similar to these.

    I did it just ain't right is it! :-) Working in mining and quarries gives many opportunities to operate different equipment. Locomotives for staging and shuffling train cars for loading and shipping, haul units to bring ore and rock from pits, loaders, excavators like shovels and track hoes to get it loaded and dozers to move material and clear land of overburden. Even graders for maintaining roads and huge water wagons for dust suppression.

    It is best if you have a position where you can operate different pieces on a regular basis, any equipment can get a little old 10 hrs a day, day after day after day.

    It was parked next to another locomotive and caboose on display so I thought maybe it was used in the switch yard somehow.
