Remarks & Notes 
The mid-train remotes on this eastbound loaded Southern unit coal train were stacked like cord wood when there was a heavy slack run-in and a broken rail just east of Natural Tunnel. The derrick working here is N&W's Bluefield-based crew. Southern's D-1 worked the other side (replacing the Clinchfield derrick, which worked the first day of the derailment unit the Knoxville derrick crew could get there). Today, of course, contract crews with side booms would do this work, but many years ago, these big 200 and 250-ton derricks handled the clean up of such debacles. It was much more interesting, too.

Roundhouses, waiting rooms, offices, platforms, carpeted aisles, and other places. One catches these at their trade, both on and off the clock.

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