Cleaning Up a Huge Coal Spill on the Railroad Track - Hulcher in for the Rescue

Hopper Cars has dumped a large pile of coal on the railroad tracks and Hulcher is ready for cleanup. See Hulcher's vacuum truck in action and his grapple truck cleaning up a coal spill with a clam bucket. You'll see them move wagons with their grapple trucks, then show you what a Skate is and what it does on the railroad. It's fascinating for me to watch how all this big mess is cleared up and I'm very happy to get it done. Fortunately the coal will be recovered, the big expense is in cleanup, but it has to be done. I love having Hulcher come because they tell me all these great railroad stories about derailments and he has some crazy stories! it really seems like it might be a bit faster to have a rig that can be swung quickly by hand rather than strictly remote controlled. Keep it held up by the arm in the vertical, but being able to swing it a little faster and more directed by closer eyes would be helpful, I think.
