Light Crane, Vsetaty, Bohemia (CZ), 2008
One oddity that I saw in Vsetaty was this light crane. I'm not sure what it would be able to lift on a railway, given how heavy everything tends to be, but it looks like this one was being used to handle track ties (sleepers in British English), which in my experience weigh 300lbs. or less if they're wood. In this case, though, pretty much all of the ties, but in use and disused, appeared to be concrete, meaning that they would be considerably heavier.
