Oh yes they do!. Usually after a hard braking...


Yep, didn't UP 844's wheels develop flat spots on one occasion?

Looks like they're still converting trucks for dedicated use on rails:

Maybe they store equipment in there, I dunno.

Even if it was purchased new I'm sure it was a heck of a lot cheaper than a locomotive and extra room was just a bonus.

Anyone know which railroad owns that thing?

Two more European VW Van rail cars;



and my favorite that I've come across, the Mini, in Canada, I hear they have used quite a few Mini Coopers for rail inspection cars, over the years!
