Approaching the west switch at Leyden, this coal empty is making track speed at 35 MPH with its three units (the third being on the rear). This shot is relatively close to the location of the old west end of Leyden. It used to be a fairly short siding (under 5,000 feet) with the west end lining up with the cottonwood trees to the right. It was extended to its current 7,100 feet by Rio Grande in the early 1980's.
