A roster shot of Federal Railroad Administration track geometry car (DOTX 220). This car is used to check for defects in the rail that may lead to derailments. And it works well! Between Tabernash and Granby, the train found four significant defects, each requiring a slow order between 10 MPH and 25 MPH.
