While I have no statistics to prove it, I suspect that Leyden is one of the most-used sidings on the east slope of the Moffat. Eastbounds frequently need to hold here to wait for westbounds coming out of the yard. In the case of BNSF, eastbound manifest will frequently hold here because the yard won't have space for the trains. On this morning, this eastbound coal train is going to meet two westbounds (include Amtrak) before continuing on it to town.
