Remarks & Notes 
Clinchfield 1402--the company's Erwin, TN-based 250-ton capacity Industrial Brownhoist derrick--is working to clean up a derailment on the Southern at Glenita, VA. Back in the days before contractors with side booms handled this work, railroads were most accommodating to connecting roads to help clean up off-line derailments using their specialized equipment, particularly derricks. The vertical boom just visible in the distance above the Southern radio receiver car belongs to N&W's Bluefield derrick--a 300-ton Industrial Brownhoist.
