July 1963. I find this picture interesting because with the caboose behind the helper, markers ready to go, and the helper making smoke, it is easy to assume they are headed east out of town. Yet why is a crewmen riding the loco steps and another hanging onto the side of the boxcar. I can't think of what kind of switch move they are making. If they were setting out a bad order into the yard, presumably they would have cut off farther west. I can think of two possibilities. Perhaps the helper needs to stop at the tank to top off his water. Or perhaps they are throwing out a bad order, but need to shove it down into the rip track (the swamp) from the east switch and don't want to backup all the way to the depot to get the rear end. Any other ideas?
