They've been working on the railroad, all the live-long day... Indeed, in Oakland the railroad has been the site of much activity over the past two days, as CSX is replacing ties under the rails. The process is somewhat fascinating to watch, and those attending yesterday's Fresh Produce Market were doing just that as the miniature cars split the rails, lifted them up, yanked out the old ties, and settled in the new. The process is supposed to be completed by today or tomorrow, according to a spokesperson at the Oakland Town Hall. Photo by John McEwen.
