Remarks & Notes 
When key components on freight cars fail and the subsequent repairs can’t be made at the location said car is set out, then you got to improvise a temporary solution to get the car running again. Such is the case on this auto rack that experienced a broken coupler yoke which is the device that attaches the coupler to the body of the freight car. Steel wires and some chain do the trick in keeping the 60” E/F coupler attached to this flatcar. Now it must wait for northbound train Q610 to take it to Atlanta for a repair before it can get back into normal service.

Pictures that kind of hurt looking at, either it be graffiti on brand new trains, or derailments, or trains on the scrap yard, etc.
