A very attentive crew on this MNYRO noticed a tank car five cars back from the head end. This did not match their train manifest so they asked DS-86 to align them in to the siding at Leyden to investigate. Turns out the tank car was too close to the head end and needed to be moved further back. The crew was going to do the switch at the house track at Leyden, but discovered the frog was missing from the house track! I learned that this is done because, if the frog is missing, UP does not have to pay taxes on the house track. Who knew? In any case, after a very late westbound Zephyr passes by, the crew will perform the switching out of the west end of Leyden.
