Post subject:  UP/Sperry Hi-rail diesel truck

1997 International diesel chassis, Supreme custom aluminum body.

Includes a 20-KW diesel genset, 240 volt AC, 3-phase, 60-cycle.
Battery tray recently rebuilt. Engine runs, truck runs, air conditioning and genset not tested. No body damage. Nice interior, with lots of built-in cabinets, etc.

241,500 miles (many on rail). Nebraska title.

Built for and used by Union Pacific as a test truck for internal rail flaw testing and detection, later used by Sperry Rail Service for same purpose.
No test gear instrumentation is on the truck, but the rear-mounted, retractable test carriage is still there.

Located in central Connecticut in a secure location, as-is, where-is.
AS IS - WHERE IS. Will not ship, you come and pick it up/drive it away.

Additional photos available.

Reasonable offers entertained - let me know.

The battery charger and load tester do not go with the truck. The can of WD-40 does.
