*/"Of course, when you are trimming cars or doubling cars to take west, 
you couldn't hump at the same time./**/"/*

     The exception to that was when they used to hump coal off of the 
"South" hump (into the "Fifties"?) and other cars on the "North" hump. 
It was cool to watch four T-6's with torch-like flames coming from their 
stacks as they shoved the heavy cuts up the hump to be weighed and 
classified. Many times they would have an engine & slug on the east end 
of the track catching the cars.
