I was called to pilot a Tamping Machine years ago and the Operator told me that all of CSX's 

equipment large enough to run by themselves (ie not like the assortment of small machines

in a tie replacement gang) was equipped with radar that beeped and got louder and more

obnoxious the closer you got tu another machine. We only had so much room on an old

hotbox siding and it was hard on the ears to get everything behind the derail for the nite.
