On Thursday I was just outside of Barstow, CA deciding on a location to photograph 4044 next weekend when this came down the track. I think it's function is to locate faults in the track, but I am not sure. I would appreciate any information in that regard.

Thank you Pat. That is a very interesting article. I wonder if it has the capability of measuring tunnel clearances too.
