At 3:50 p.m. on August 7, 2020, a crew was working to move thirty empty railroad cars out of the grain receiving area to make room for car deliveries. The railr oad cars were being moved by a locomotive with help from the shuttle wagon. An e mployee was in the cab of the locomotive with the locomotive operator as part of his on-the-job training. A coworker was in the shuttle car and another coworker was operating the switch gear to help to guide the railroad cars. The cars were meant to be parked in lane five by using the number five switch gear to lead th e train down the right tracks. The coworker operating the switch gear, used the number four switch gear.
