Remarks & Notes 
Hot Rail After a freak snow storm the day before, the bolts of a joint bar seen on the left have broken due to rail contraction from the cold weather. The next day, an alert track maintainer has found the broken bolts and goes about fixing the break by heating up the rail thus allowing it to expand back into place so that new bolts can then be installed. After a quick fix, this CSX mainline is open for track speed again. Photo taken with permission.
