You are currently located at:
- Powered by a longitudinally mounted Cummins VT-12, 600hp diesel engine
- Unveiled in October 1955
- Included a main side dumping body with two side dumping trailers
On their own initiative, LeTourneau took the basic VC-22, changed the engine to the 600-hp VT-12, and changed the trailers to side-dumping bins to produce a the Side-Dump Train. The six-wheeled locomotive also had its own bin, and could operate independently. Completed in October 1955, the company was still under the moratorium period and could not sell it for earthmoving, and the train saw no orders. The vehicle could not be presented as an earthmoving vehicle because of the 5 years contract with Wabco prohibiting him to manufacture earthmoving equipment. Tested until 1956, it was never sold.
