Description
Workers tearing up track and loading ties on a flat car pulled by a locomotive in the demolition of the Mount Tamalpais and Muir Woods Railway. Several workers are standing on the flat car, one waving his hat in his hand. One worker stands to the right of the photo with a metal leaning on a metal mallet. The other workers are crowding around the flat car where the ties are being loaded. Another flat car is already filled with ties. The engineer stands next to the locomotive in the background at the left of the photo.
