Lets back up further into the area where the winches are all lined up at attention in their future working positions.

Now let’s go back to her stern and take a look at what they’re up to. What you are looking at is quite interesting. The railroad sized wheels on railroad rails are attached to a¬†housing structure sitting on the railroad rails. There will be two more (I think) of these spaced and attached to the hull up to the bow. This will eventually move Americas Finest laterally and line up where she will be moved into the sea and launched.

Lets take a look at this ingeniously constructed apparatus from the other side so you can see this marvel of engineering.
