If you look in the distance on the right side of the frame, you'll see a trio of units on the move between the two halves of this coal load. Normally, the swing helpers on a coal train would be cut out at Pecos Street. However, on this day, a coal train was already sitting on Bypass 2, preventing the swing helpers from using the Pecos Street Crossover. So, the train had to stop at C&S Junction to set out the helpers. This was, no doubt, very frustrating for motorists on Lowell Blvd. The back half of the train blocked traffic while the units were set out.
