Interesting!

We used similar style of jacks on the EL&WB project. While they could lift 60 tons each they only had a six inch lift and were very slow - beats doing it by hand!

Interesting. The planning that it takes and the execution. They must be well trained in re-railing things by the way they handle that

It's always easier when you have the right tools available.
