There was a time, 15-20 years ago, when you could regularly find a coal train tied down on the siding at Leyden. You could almost count on it. There wouldn't be enough room in the yard, so trains would be held out at Leyden or even Rocky to wait for a relief crew. With the construction of the bypass tracks and the decline in coal, such a sight has become rare. However, such an occurrence did happen the previous night. The crew on this coal train "died" and had to tie the train down in the siding at Leyden. Here, the following morning, the sun is shining brightly and the temperature is a bitter -5F.
