Diplory


Explanation:
Your search - diplorí - did not match any documents.
No pages were found containing "diplorí". GOOGLE

DIPLORY was found but in a Spanish page:

Máquinas y equipos para la colocación y la conservación de la vía férrea y de la catenaria. Máquinas para la conservación de la vía (clavadoras, bulonadoras, tronzadoras, taladradoras, grupos de bateo, esmeriladoras, desbarbadoras, curvadoras, colocadores de carriles, tensores, gatos, *diplory*, sustituidoras de traviesas...).

And in a German page about trains:

Die HG 3/3 1068, erbaut durch SLM 1926, seit 1966 als Denkmallok auf dem Meiringer Bahnhofplatz, wurde von der Ballenberg Dampfbahn käuflich erworben, am 9.6. vom Sockel geholt und auf *Diplory* in der Zeit von 20.15 bis 23.45 nach Interlaken Ost gezogen. Die Maschine soll wieder betriebsfähig hergerichtet werden.

Ref for both:
http://www.google.com/search?q=diplory&hl=en&lr=&safe=active...

After that I came to a complete dead-end. Sorry, but it seems to be extremely obscure. It's strange that it came up in Spanish (ending in y, which is very English) and German.

Maybe you could try submitting it as a German question - they're big on trains there.

Can you give us some more context?


Explanation:
Hi Keith,

I've searched all over for this, and I just can't come up with anything. Could it be a typo? Might you be working from a fax?

Perhaps if you gave us some more context, like what the results of applying this stuff will be, when it is to be done, etc., we might have enough key words to come up with the correct spelling/term.

And a suggestion:

Since I've answered your query, you will be sent messages asking you to evaluate the answer. Give this answer a 0, and repost your query with the expanded info.

Best of luck,
