Holy crap that track and facility in general are looking in tip-top shape.  Love collapsing fire damaged shed the trains still go in and out of.

So those are diesel heislers and the loader is powered with a weed wacker.

I think that was just the starter motor!  But it looked pretty funny!

Looks like there is a shortage of curved track over there, as a lot of curves are made up of many straight sections.

Called a "pony engine", IIRC. Common practice in older industrial diesels.

That processing plant in the second vid looks more like some steampunk illustration than anything real, with vague hints of a steam engine...
