Remarks & Notes 
K221 is rolling southbound approaching the "Pusher Shack" in the small hamlet of Morley, TN, behind a matched set of UP 5900 series GEs. CSX keeps a manned helper stationed here to assist trains over Duff Mountain. However, the crew of this train politely declined the offer of help from the pusher crew, as they had the train well under control. With the severe downturn in the coal business lately, I was actually excited to see what I assumed could only be a coal train here. Only later did I find out this is actually a coke train, and not coal. That also explains why the crew didn't need the help of the pusher, as coke is much lighter than coal.
