Not sure if that is a word, but...
This shot was taken at the Rook Railyard of the Wheeling and Lake Erie RR, located a couple miles west of downtown Pittsburgh.  I'm not positive of the exact operation, but I believe the train come up from a big gas processing plant built in the heart of the SW PA Marcellus Shale gas fields near the town of Houston PA, maybe 20 or so miles as the crow flies SW of here.  If that's correct, the product is then being transferred to the tanker trucks for delivery to points unknown.  (Passing Gas might have been a good title ::))
