Apologies for the lines crossing this shot. Normally I wouldn't include a shot with such unsightly distractions, but I did so here to show the progress of the construction of a second main track between C&S Junction at Pierce Street. Once the new track (seen here) is ready for trains, the existing main track will be severed and reconnected to the new main. The Arvada siding (middle track) and the existing main will shift to the left to accommodate the new track. BNSF's Golden Sub (running to Coors) is visible on the left. In the next five years, RTD's Gold Line will also come into the picture (quite literally) at this location.
