Picking up a pusher recording ?

Another possibility is based on Swearer's observation that the time freight is going east on the WB track, and in a previous sequence, pusher 2152 has to back "2 miles" to switch over to the WB track.  Is it possible that 1218 stopped at or near Boaz siding to wait for 2152 to couple to the rear of the time freight somewhere near Vinton station instead of Boaz?

On one of the Bud Swearer N&W steam tapes, he paces 1218 on the head end 
of a train as it comes to a stop to pick up a pusher, then as it starts 
and he continues on until he comes to a road crossing where I am going 
to assume the train blocks his passage. This entire recording transpired 
over a considerable distance. I am trying to figure out what road he was 
driving on at that time. Anyone have a clue?
