Military Move – JLGTV’s
Rare combination of regular freight and military equipment.
The JLTV is considered a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle which partially replaced the iconic military Humvees.
Wisconsin & Southern Railroad military move shows JLTV’s being transported after being manufactured in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The Humvee is the colloquial term for High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV). The vehicle was first manufactured in 1983 with over 281,000 being produced at a cost of $220,000 (2011 dollars) each with maximum armor.
Each JLGT comes in at a cost of $433,000 each with an operation range of 300 miles and a top speed of 70 mph.
The WSOR is a 802 mile Class II railroad that traverses areas between Wisconsin and Illinois. It hauls mostly commodities including wood, grain, consumer goods and chemicals.
