The Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad has perfected a new unloading method for continuously welded rail, which pushes the rails off the rail train rather than to pull them off. This eliminates the danger of damaging the rail as it drops from the train in the pulling method. The new method uses specially adapted flat cars located directly behind the locomotive to thread and push the long rail onto the track. A crew of 4 or 5 section men in addition to the train crew are needed to lay the rail.
