A Utah Railways coal load (with leased UP power on the point) is running west on the "wrong track", about to enter the Nolan Tunnels. The "wrong track" simply means the dispatcher has decided to run the train west on Main 2 instead of Main 1. Main 1 is typically used for westbounds and Main 2 for eastbounds. In CTC, however, the dispatcher can do whatever he or she pleases!
