I have never before seen anything quite like them.

Nice picture and thanks for sharing it. :)

Thanks Frank. Feather River canyon is one of my favorite areas to chase trains. I just wish it was closer to where I live!

Hey, even for those of us who live in the Feather River Canyon, sometimes you get skunked.

Thankfully, Donner Pass is only an hour away via 89.

Thanks for answering and clearing up the mystery.

I have a very informative video of a beet sugar-mill; I would also like to find a video of a genuine cane sugar-mill in operation.

Regarding the picture of the derail switch above, there is also a clamp-on derail that can be clamped onto any rail anywhere and locked in place.

It accomplishes the same thing without all the picturesque drama, so not nearly so neat a device.

Such derails are most often seen where one roads property ends and another begins, yet through traffic is rare; there will be derails facing both directions to prevent errant traffic of one road from inadvertently and unexpectedly entering the other roads trackage.

Use of a derail prevents the track being severed and allows controlled transfer of traffic when necessary.

Thanks for reading.

RailfanTerry, both are good, but that top shot is a real winner; impressive capture.

It is nice to see steam handling a train by itself; UP and many others ruin the atmosphere by splicing in a couple diesels immediately behind the tender.

I did not know NS was running their steam engines; the last word I had was that they had parked them forever.

Thanks for posting. :)
