Rail grinder RR24M30

Operated by Speno, it is a gauge convertible 24 wheel grinder. I found at North Geelong Yard on the broad gauge, it has been working over the Melbourne suburban network in late 2009 and again in mid 2010. It has also run on narrow gauge. I have numbered the bits from the power / generator unit end
