Remarks & Notes 
BNSF yard job 711 shoved track 1231 "blind" (no one on the point or in view of the point) cut off not realizing they had shoved seven car lengths past the clearance point, through a derail (which obviously worked!) and across a street. Fortunately no one hurt and amazingly the cars did not come uncoupled and the air hoses never parted putting the train into emergency which is why the job didn't even know this had happened.

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