As the rain pick up in the rural mountain community of Wildwood, GA (MP J-141.0 Wildwood) haulage right NS 736 (CSX Z601-08) is slowly easing down the 1.22% Raccoon Mountain grade on the main 2 track almost at the end of it's long slow journey south on the CSX Chattanooga Sub. Under the order of SC-Dispatcher the train will have to come to a safe stop at signal at Wildwood to meet the hot "tote" train CSX Q126-07 which will diverge up the main one train and shoot north for Nashville, TN. Once the meet is complete the 7,123ft in length Scherer coal bucket will proceed down the mountain, and get back on NS trackage for Chattanooga, TN.
