Kevin,
I would concur with your forensic analysis of the situation. Getting the two to "shake hands" is a good way to put it.

I can't help but wonder though--if the system for automatic billing...

Original was a 16:9 crop. This is an adjacent frame, with a 6:4 crop. I thought it might be best to eliminate the CSX local in the background, since it's blocked by a sapling. Does this work any...
