An interesting find at the BNSF Northtown yard. The FRA track inspection vehicle DOTX 220. In 2007, Colorado Railcar built track geometry car DOTX 220 for the Federal Railroad Administration. DOTX 220 is equipped with a full suite of track geometry measurement and mapping systems, allowing it to take real time track geometry, laser-measured gauge, profile and ride quality measurements and record the data in its own systems at extremely high speeds. The car has crew seating for up to 20 technicians.
