Remarks & Notes 
Looking odd at first sight, a huge pile of crossties come rolling down the mainline with a gentlemen seemingly perched on top of them... In actuality, a CSX MAC truck is traveling in reverse with this employee sitting in a crane that is attached to the truck. The truck is pushing a trailer that's loaded to the max with old ties and also the truck is loaded too. At this angle and with that much cargo, the truck is unable to be seen. Just yards away from unloading, the gentlemen waves as he passes by... Hanging around for a few days now, the (General Purpose) locomotive #6917 and two other EMDs start their morning basking in the sun.
