It's heavy enough to ride on eight axels, and it's important enough to be cut in behind the engines. As far as my research goes, this thing is a Drawwork, a large electronic winch used with Oil Rigs. Yard engine 1546 watches his train go into a yard track at Moose Jaw.
I usually don't take pictures of the track iteself, but I thought this was somewhat interesting. Let me know if you think so too. It looks as though there was on oil leak on the CSXT Chattanooga Subdivision, in Antioch TN, just south of Nashville.
