Local speeders

Those tracks along the NCR trail up in York County aren't always empty, sometimes they are filled with track speeders, aka railroad motorcars. These little vehicles were used on railroads for track inspection & maintenance. The railroads don't use them much anymore, but they have become a hit with some railfans who purchase them to ride on local short lines & the such. I passed a few of them in Glen Rock, Pennsylvania last week and snapped some pictures.
