An eastbound coal load rolls slowly down the main at Leyden, meeting a military train that is already on the siding. The coal train will stop not too far ahead to check out the rail. There have been reports of trespassers in the area and it turns out they placed rocks and railroad spikes on the rail head! Fortunately, the debris was spotted and removed. I actually spoke briefly to the conductor and it was believed the train could have easily derailed had the debris not been removed.
