Good Morning--

I was on my way into work this morning and saw this engine. I had no idea there was such a thing and tried to do a little research online but didn't get much information. Are they just used for regular transport now? Was it a rare siting? I was like a little kid, though, and had to pull over and wait for it so I could snap photos. Just curious and thought I'd turn to the true enthusiasts and experts.
