    Nice fix admweld.

    I believe there is another mate to this wheel on the opposite side of the bucket. The bucket is lowered on to the RR track and holds the front wheels off the rail, and then they can drive the backhoe on the rail. Since the front wheels on the bucket don't pivot the fat rear tires just follow along.

    Dave, plate welds look weak, but in actuallity the plate is probably thick enough, and large enough, it is only there to keep from caving in that portion of the bucket, that is supporting the weight. When you think about the leverage, it is far easier to rip the wheel, off the plate, than it is to rip the plate off the bucket. I think, after Billy's repair, the RR is safe.

    JS: Yeah, you're probably right, they just looked a bit tawdry compared to those nice new fillets. What do you think, 7018 H4R, or wire? Looks like 7018's. (the new ones, the old ones look like Bazooka Joe).
