The vest factory would be a better choice if this was a bowtie plant, I think

Doing hotwork next to or on a petroleum tank without proper precautions is a leading cause of industrial accidents, stupid that it keeps happening since it was identified as an area for risk management by OSHA and CSB decades ago.

I was told there was no wood in a concrete railroad tie.  If this is like those wax museum movies where it's just dead people covered with wax, I don't want to know any more.

They're concrete railroad ties, they're used in place of the traditional creosote impregnated wood ties as they last longer and are more dimensionally stable and fewer are needed reducing install costs.
