Over the last week Norfolk Southern has gone along the main railroad line in Anniston to lay down new wooden railroad crossties. Norfolk Southern is doing routine maintenance along its track in the Anniston area and part of the maintenance includes replacing worn out crossties with brand new ones. Over the next few weeks maintenance vehicles will be working to upkeep the railroad line. Here is video and photos of a train laying down brand new wooden crossties. A backhoe picks up several crossties at a time and drops them onto the gravel. Enjoy!
