Wally comments on the attire of the switch shovelers which are about to climb off to clean out the west switch at Cruzatte. Cleaning out the switches is needed after the spreader fills the switch with any snow that accumulates

Backing out over the east Switch Cruzatte from the siding. The Dispatcher then lined the switch for movement up the mainline to plow the snow over the side of the mountain. The snow piled up on the mainline is from the spreader shoving the snow from the siding
