3 male workers hold their long tools in place under a railroad track, ready to unite in a movement; one is a black man, bare to the waist; the others are also black but might be Caucasian and Asian; they are fully clothed with shirt and trousers and one has flat hat; power poles on hill in background (like 3 crosses).
