UP's DS-86 set up great rolling meet at Leyden between the westbound Zephyr (on the main) and an eastbound coal load (on the siding). If you are unfamiliar with the term "rolling meet", this refers to two trains meeting at siding in which neither train actually has to come to a stop. By the time the coal train reached the east end of the siding, they had a clear signal. Same thing for the Zephyr at the west end.
