Remarks & Notes 
A car rolls through the computer-controlled retarders at East Hump while being sorted for eastern destinations at Union Pacific’s Bailey Yard in North Platte, Nebraska, on May 3, 2011. Retarders slow the car rolling off the hump using a sophisticated system that considers car weight, distance the car must travel on a designated track, wind speed and direction and even air temperature.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.

A far cry from the common wedgie ... and particularly well executed.
