This machine started life as an airport pushback tractor. It was built by TUG in Kennesaw, Georgia. Eventually a railroad coupler was added, thus making it a rubber tired locomotive. It switched railcars until the late 1990s within the Bethlehem, PA, plant of Bethlehem Steel. On November 1, 2007, it was returned to service by the National Museum of Industrial History. It is NOT yet available for public viewing.
