In addition to the Buck Local, this picture also does a nice job of capturing the configuration of trackwork at Broomfield. The train is running through a switch that exists from the Lafayette Branch on to the siding. The new siding extension, which has just been ballasted, can be seen on the left side of the picture. It continue on for another 3,800 feet or so to the north. The track in the foreground is the main. In the distance, you can see the brakeman from the Buck Local preparing to align the north switch of Broomfield for the siding.
