Considering the fact that it is a branch line, the Golden Sub is still fairly busy during the course of a 24 hour period. There are four "Beer Run" trains: two from Denver to Golden and two from Golden to Denver. The Beer Run primarily serves the Coors Brewing plant in Golden. However, the westbound Beer Run also brings cars for industries along the line. Those cars are dropped and sorted in a small yard in Golden. Then, five days a week, BNSF's Golden Switch runs east out of the yard in Golden and switches industries all along the track. In this scene, the Golden Switch is headed back for the yard in Golden. Its switching duties done for the day.
