BNSF needed to get the Beer Run out of the yard (as it was taking up two tracks) to clear room. But the train was not yet ready to head west all the way to Golden. Instead, a crew brought the train as far as Lamar Street, where it was tied down. Lamar Street (as you can tell from this shot) is currently closed as construction progresses on the new Gold Line commuter tracks, set to open in 2016.
