I take it the guy is moving the tracks so the train alters course? Nice catch. Did you know this was going to happen or was it serendipity?

Yes he is engaging the switch to take the locomotive on another track - we were aware the train was going to do this so I just waited to take some shots and hope for something worth editing/sharing. The train was quite far away from the viewing area, thus the heat wave look of the photo.

Great catch, Dan. I like the heat wave look.
