Holy crap! someone's arse is going to get kicked for that. Here in Blighty every goods yard/railway station has a 'In Gauge' tower as we've got hundreds of low bridges from the Victorian era when the system was built. If it doesn't fit through that your stuffed.

IIRC, that flyover is within the official yard limits of Enola. Which doesn't excuse whoever gave the 'pull ahead' sign. You're supposed to have spotters with good old mk1 eyeballs actually on the load when moving 'high/wide' loads anytime they're moving, even with the relatively massive loading gauge we have here in the U.S.A. Somebody's gonna get some time off to think about their behaviour, especially since there's a big ol' sign on the the flyover that says "no high cars" right on the side.

Hell, the Brits were using steam locomotives in the coal fields until the middle 80's
