U878-14 waits at 21st. Bridge Road for the taxi to bring their Conductor back to the train.  
 
Typically the eastbound drags that pick up additional 40 cars in Keyser do so by pulling their power down thru the east yard from West Keyser and backing the loads to their train at West Keyser.  
 
If some reason the additional cars have to be pulled out of the east yard and their train is made up on the eastbound siding, then the CO has to restore the switches and derail near the keyser Station while the engineer takes the train clear of the crossings in Keyser. The taxi will then take to CO over to 21st. Bridge Road to rejoin his train - 15 May 2015

Some days, the most interesting person you meet is a river with a train running beside it.

The Rail Grinder crew goes to great lengths to ensure lineside fires are kept to a minimum from the sparks given off by the grinding operation. This shot from above shows the "Class A" firefighting foam additive being "batched" mixed in one of the tank cars.
