Sort Out

Cars and trucks were sorted into piles for salvage.

Scrap Heap

Car bodies were piled up near an access road so the torches could be brought in.

Track Laying

The ground was graded then track segments were brought in and bolted together.

Balast Train

Balast was dumped and the balast train ran back and forth frequently to tamp it down.

Clean Up

Dump trucks and bulldozers were then brought in to clean up the coal and haul it away.

Job Done

After the track had been straightened and leveled, the rails were welded together and the joints removed.
