         Actually, I'm curious what the chalk markings mean on the couplers and the side of the box car.

      On the cars usually has something to do with the load/destination/routing/position in the train. I dunno why on the couplers.

      So the repairs were made but the marks not removed or perhaps the cause?

      No, sorry Rooster, nothing to do with the wreck. Remember, I'm in a different country, so your rules may differ. Carmen in Canada inspect newly built trains before they leave the terminal, and they leave all types of marks and dates and initials. Rail crews must also leave marks at designated locations as proof of inspection of hot boxes and hot wheels. They are normal, and are unrelated to the wreck.

           Sorry, I know Carmen was written by a Frenchman and set in Spain, but the Italian in me keeps seeing this:

      I resisted when I saw the word "carmen"....

      Here, I think of Carmen Miranda

      String-lining? Them empty bulkhead flats probably should not have been up front.
