Re: Hey buddy, I got your Galvanized Pipe Load. . .

They need a load shifter: there was one at the New Rip at Argentine which had been there for a LONG time. It was like a wood guillotine that was lowered until it could contact the pipe or culvert or lumber that had shifted in switching. Call in a switch engine and shove the car a little and it was back in place. Get the carmen to resecure the load and send it on to the customer. The alternative was not nearly as quick
