The siding of Belden is just shy of being two miles long. It is also difficult to see most of the siding as it runs along the Eagle River deep in a canyon. The east end can be viewed from above from U.S. 24. looking down toward the canyon. Due to the grade, eastbounds holding the siding would sometimes have to make multiple attempts to depart! If they could not get sufficient traction, they would stall out and back down into the siding at try again. Here, you can see a couple of rock slide, covering portions of the siding!
