Remarks & Notes 
Further down the line the crew works to "throw the switch" to drop off a boxcar for their test run. This, however, is an especially difficult task because the switch levers were removed long ago. The crew has to chip out wooden blocks put in the tracks to keep the switch in place, then pound another one in to line the switch for the boxcar, and then repeat to line the switch for the main line.
