Ever underestimate how quickly the sun will actually set!? There was a brilliant sunset on this evening and I headed to Leyden to try to get a shot of a westbound. Unfortunately, by the time the train arrived, the sun was all but gone! Headlights reflecting off the rail clearly reveal that UP 7215 is headed into the siding at Leyden to meet Amtrak 6. The "train" is actually 12 units being moved to Glenwood Springs to be used as swing helpers on eastbound coal loads coming out of Grand Junction.
