3-way meets are not a particularly common thing on BNSF's Front Range Sub. Largely because the line has no signals and trains operate using track warrants. In this shot, the Front Range Explorer holds on the main at Longs Peak. The Laurel, MT to Denver, CO manifest just started pulling out of the siding south with a new warrant. A second manifest, the Cheyenne, WT to Denver, CO manifest, is slowly following the first manifest through the siding. In track warrant territories, sidings are typically "uncontrolled", meaning multiple trains can move on them, so long as they move slow enough to stop within 1/2 the distance they can see.
