Shoving back at Valley Falls.
Earlier the local crew had coupled to the cut shown. To save walking, the entire cut was pulled up, so that the needed cars could be uncoupled and set over. The un-needed cars were recoupled to the yard cut. The crew man handling this, has now moved over to the left, to observe the far end of the cut, to "protect" the shove back. In another four car lengths, the cut will be stopped and he will step across and uncouple the unit.
