Backhoe on a train 2.0

Remember the ol' backhoe climbing onto a train thread from years ago? Well, here's the updated version of that same thing happening.

He pushed himself into the back.

Notice the black steel pieces on the bottom of the bucket, directly underneath the driver and on the rear outriggers. Kinda like a little track system so he doesnt fall off. Rear tires ride on the sides of the car.

JCB in England had one of the first rigs to do that, and it's on purpose. The idea is to be able to unload cars without a siding. Or, as show above, to deliver material to a trackside worksite. Not only can they get on top of the boxcar, the operator can move from one boxcar to another.

it has sliders behind the front axle and on the outriggers that keep it from going over the sides, probably even has the pavement pads still on...also weighs a good 18k lbs
