    I looks like they are starting to disassemble a temporary rail track that was used to move in, or move out a big casting that needs replaced or repaired. The track base is built up with wooden sleepers and then I-beam sleepers, probably to raise the tracks high enough to clear existing tracks?

    Pig bed workers at the Jones & Laughlin Steel Corporation.

    Pig bed made up ready to receive molten iron. Molten iron from the main runner flows at right angles into a smaller trough known was the ‘sow.’ From the ‘sow’ the molten iron flows into the individual molds known as ‘Pigs.’ Hence, the term: ‘Pig Iron.’
