Found this contraption sitting on the CN siding between Yorkton and Melville, SK a couple of weeks ago.

Herzog had a similar set working in Kansas City a few years ago. It's an OTM (Other Track Materials) machine. They use it to gather up or distribute material such as ties, tie plates, and steel gang scrap. It saves the railroad from having to run a work train with a locomotive and MOW crew, which is extremely cost prohibitive, especially in high traffic corridors. Nice shots!
