I think the west leg of the wye had not been used in a long time. I would suggest that these cars had been on that same west leg for a long time. Looks to me like it could have been a lot worse.I've never been there, but the aerial photos on line appear to show several cars on the east leg. There is talk here about a delivery of locos. One possibility is the cars were set from the east leg to the west leg in anticipation of that delivery, and you can fill in the rest.
