Took several attempts at getting a decent recording of this track inspection car. This was Union Station Chicago as I was leaving on Amtrak Lincoln Service. Federal Railroad Administration Rail Car DOTX 219 inspects rail track to make sure it is within operating specifications. You can barely see it in video. DOTX 219 has all glass rear-view for looking upon tracks for defects.
