Upon arriving at Tennessee Yard, this NS train was departing.

A couple of views of the north end of the intermodal terminal, showing the spare wheel sets and chassis storage.

The following sequence shows a production crane picking up a container, sitting it down on a chassis and a mule pulling the chassis to storage.

The next operation was taking a container from a chassis and placing it as the top layer of a well car.

Another container from chassis to train. The chassis is seen in the foreground in the next to the last shot.

Back now to unloading a container from a well car and placing it on a chassis.

Again unloading a well car, this time with a 20' container.
