Remarks & Notes 
Two NS MofW workers use ignited oil-soaked ropes to heat the two rails on the west side of the frog of this main line switch. The heat from the fire will expand the rails to align the bolt holes and allow the worker in the foreground to install three new track bolts. The bolts will replace three others that have been snapped in two by the contraction of the rails in cold weather.
