BNSF has a problem. I suppose it is a good problem when compared to the types of problems the Rock Island or the Pennsy once had. BNSF is under powered, under manned, and over capacity. This McCook-bound manifest was supposed to pass this spot close to 36 hours earlier. But it got tied down in western Colorado due to a shortage of available crews. Then, when it finally reached Denver, it was again supposed to depart around 0900. A crew wasn't called for it until 1230 and then it had several problems getting going. It is nearly 1700 in this shot as the train holds at the east end of yard for westbound traffic. It would remain here until after 1830. That means that in the six hours the crew was on duty (half their time), the train moved just a hair over three miles!
