    High, Wide and Heavy: Moving Your Big Freight Safely 08/16/2017 Join the Short Line Safety Institute on August 16th, for an educational webinar on High and Wide Shipments and their innovative aspects, including inspections and safety measures to consider. Ask our expert, Mr. Clay Gambill, an experienced railroad and operations presenter, as he walks us through big safety topics for big freight. Mr. Gambill will explore limitations, structures, research and the general movement of a High and Wide Shipment. He will also review regular train operations, speed, location in train, visibility, and other special handling requirements due to extreme dimensions, securement, measurement and inspection.
