Santa Cruz & Monterey Bay Railway : Service On The Santa Cruz Branch Line
That's the pump truck operator on the far right in pic 4, and far left in pic 12.
Of note: the piping on the boom has to be rotated every x number of hours to equalize wear on the inside and the joints wear faster than the straight parts.

Cool shooting as always 1TP !


TCS - my brother Ross ran one of these, maybe he still does.

Thanks TC. I try my best to make the shots interesting.
 
Here is another photograph showing the operator of the pump truck controlling the pump and boom remotely.

Holding and guiding that hose for an extended time must be a chore. I have been on a smaller hose when we placed 7 yards of concrete in our crawlspace and it was not light.
