Until the new main track is actually put in service (expected to be May 2012 at the time of this photo), the new switches at C&S Junction are hand-throw. So, when BNSF's Beer Train comes through, a UP guy on the ground has to manually throw both sides of the crossover (from Main 1 to Main 2), the switch from Main 2 to the Golden Branch and the Derail on the Golden Branch. Here, you can see the Beer Run crossing over from Main 1 to Main 2 and you can also see that the Derail has been properly aligned in the foreground.
