"Virtually all railroad wreckers were assigned an idler car (called a "jib car" on the Soo) to accommodate the boom overhang. This one has a wheeled support for the wrecker boom to enable faster transit to a wreck site. A wrecker's boom was heavy and dangerously unstable, and there were numerous examples of wreckers ending up on their sides after the boom began to oscillate while the crane was being moved too fast over rough track. The large bin at the near end of the car holds oak blocks to support the crane outriggers when the wrecker is making a heavy or angled lift." J. C. La Rue, Jr.
