Remarks & Notes 
Holding onto what little grab irons there are on a Difco dump gondola, the conductor of A746 keeps a 3 point stance as he rides the shove maneuver to place these gons or rip-rap into the Opelika siding for a runaround move. The lone engine of A746 will then take these cars south back to Notasulga as they complete their day of work. Of note is the new PTC antenna and CTC signal boxes along with a Verizon dish that have joined the veteran Western Railway of Alabama coaling tower at the Opelika interlocking.
