After leaving the mainline behind at Rocky, the West Local has backed up the spur and is in the process of crossing CO-93. As the local approached the highway, circuitry in the track detected the train (similar to a regular grade crossing) and turned the stoplight red for traffic. A stoplight facing the tracks turns from red to green. You can see the brakeman (yellow vest, left side) hanging on to the last covered hopper. He is protected the shove back and made sure no cars decided to run the red light as the train approached.
