Description

Concrete was carried from the mixing plant to the job site in four cubic yard buckets, which were loaded on flat cars, each carrying four of the buckets at a time. The trains ran out onto temporary trestle work, and cranes picked up the buckets, then swung them into location over the forms, where they were dumped.
