I was looking at the industrial locomotive thread and came across a picture of a motor at the seldom seen mine. It had Pisscutter painted on the side. With a name like that, there has to be a story. Anyone know what it is?

It's a slang term for "if it can break it will". We derailed that thing........ Twice ;)

How? Also, I thought "piss-cutter" was slang for a type of hat.
