Because the rail grinder move at a relatively low speed, it often doesn't make it very far in between trains. In this case, the grinder made it about 2 1/2 miles before it had to clear for a coal load. The train is moving toward the camera in this image. The water being sprayed will help soak things to reduce the risk of a fire. Note the smoke coming further back, a result of the actual grinding.
