At first glance, you might think this is a picture of a meet between two trains at Leyden. In fact, both of these trains are westbounds. The BNSF train got to Leyden first and went in to the siding (BNSF 5297 is the trailing DPU on the train). Never did hear why the BNSF train took the siding...perhaps it was simply the dispatcher running his own railroad's train around the competitors. But if that were the case, it seems like the BNSF train may have just been held at C&S Junction about seven miles to the east. The world may never know for sure!
