Remarks & Notes 
A westbound NS man eases downgrade into Duffield, VA on the Appalachia District. The long stick with a hook that's stuck inside the hand grab on the nose is used to tie down or release car hand brakes--a common and quite necessary practice in mountain railroading. Rather than climb up and down ladder after ladder, the stick allows a conductor or brakeman to do the work while standing on the ground.
