Say hello to Devonshire Sub's Mile 12 also known as Potter. Potter has been utilized for a few years now as a loading point for ONR's ballasting projects. The rock is delivered trackside by truck, dumped, piled, and loaded unto these 2000 series ballast cars. The stockpile can get pretty high at times which allowed me to capture these cars at a new angle. In this shot taken in October 2010, you can see where the torches removed the tops of the cars (these were once covered hoppers), and the centre brace that those little orange tags protect to prevent strikes by the loader bucket.
