    I had never seen before...

    ASPLUNDH, the Tree Service company, on the tracks of the Northeast Corridor, high-rail truck style, cutting limbs, trimming back trees :eek: . I just watched and listened as a couple north bound AEM-7 led passenger trains blew and rang past the crew on the trestle just outside the office window.

    Asplundh Tree Expert Company: Railroad Services...

    Hi Mark,

    I'm not suprised that a MOW job like this is contracted out...

    Asplundh Tree Expert Company: Railroad Services...

    It's the same as using Sperry Rail Services for track inspection and maintenance...
