The cab cars on Oregon DOT's two TALGO 8 trainsets have been compared to the raggedy tow truck "Mater" from the Disney/Pixar movie "Cars" in terms of their awkward contours.

Here's one "Mater" getting a tow as it trails the Mt. Jefferson trainset on "Cascades" #500 through Chehalis, Wash. May 25, 2014. The car also houses the HEP auxiliary power unit for the 13-car train.
