CSX: Unknown Structure being built over tracks near Folkston, GA
Author: SouthEasternRailroad

I was driving to Folkston from Waycross when I noticed a weird structure being built over the tracks near the south end of Racepond siding. I have never seen this structure, and it look like it is still unfinshed. I pulled over and took some pictures. I'm curious on what it is so any answers would be greatly appreciated. Also it was a foggy day so excuse the quality.

Thanks
-Diego

I believe it has something to do with a 3D scanning system. Saw a post here (I think) a few days back.

This is what is being installed...some workers dubbed it the "Super Defect Detector"

Many locomotives currently have cell phone detectors.

We were introduced to super scanners a few years ago in a rules class.....surprised it's taken so long to put them out there. I'm sure the push to do PTC had something to do with the delay.

OSI systems has built similar structures to X-Ray containers coming off ships, or through land points of entry.

How does it avoid scanning the engineer and conductor?

It doesn't.  It scans for weight gain or loss, so they can pull you out of service for health deterioration/risk....
