Train D064-25 arrives at West Keyser with a load of new cross-ties. The Conductor rides the move thru the plant where he will dis-embark at the WAS signal as the train pulls ahead. Once clear the Conductor will ride the last car, protecting the shove into the west yard - 25 July 2015

Working west on track #1 near the Allegany County, MD Fairgrounds - 26 July 2015. Crews would work until 1400 hrs on Sunday at which time the train would return west to Keyser.
 
Monday would find the work train repeating the process until all the ties had been laid out

Great shots! It's always nice seeing the newer equipment at work, I've talked with some of the old heads that used to have to unload ties by hand from gons back in the 70's..... not so much fun.
