And SwingMan, re: the visibility issue, remember this was at night in the rain and maybe whatever part of the equipment was fouling the adjacent track was not yellow like the car itself.
Dutch, does that vibrator/shaker extend out sideways from the work car? If so, that might explain what happened.

Seems that the machine next to PTS 62 has an extendable unit that could foul the other main line track.
A regular "production tamper" is compact next to that 2nd machine in Dutch's pic!
