    Looking at the video, just what is left of the original Berger? Undercarriage and drum set? It sure does not look like any Berger I have seen. Quite the updating and modernization it appears. Can you really still call it a Berger?

    Kind of amazing that they would rebuild all that on a wore out set of tracks.
