This westbound coal load has come to a stop, hanging out the east end of the siding of Roggen. Once the eastbound it is meeting gets closer, the dispatcher will instruct the train to pull in to the clear. Piles of new ties lay along the right of way, ready to be installed. By the end of the year, the east end of the siding will likely be behind the photographer, as BNSF intends to lengthen the siding in 2015.
