Remarks & Notes 
When key components on freight cars fail and the subsequent repairs can’t be made at the location said car is set out, then you got to improvise a temporary solution to get the car running again. Such is the case on this auto rack that experienced a broken coupler yoke which is the device that attaches the coupler to the body of the freight car. Steel wires and some chain do the trick in keeping the 60” E/F coupler attached to this flat car. Now it must wait for northbound train Q610 to take it to Atlanta for a repair before it can get back into normal service.
