One of the most interesting features of the siding of Belden is that the main and the siding run on opposite sides of the canyon from one another! There was not enough room on either side of the canyon for two tracks, so Rio Grande just built tracks on both sides of the canyon. As you can see here, the siding is in very rough shape. Multiple rock slides have come down on the rails, completely blocking the siding.
