Remarks & Notes 
Its uncommon to find trackage this complex anywhere nowadays, let alone on an all switcher shortline! The Coke train is always wyed at J Interlocking to allow the units to push into USS Edgar Thompson. Today I got lucky and they used the lead to Kenny Yard, allowing for this shot of the entire train crossing the river. Notice the Coke train's caboose on the opposite bank of the river directly above a passing Q227.
