A westbound coal empty rolls downgrade on the main at Granby with seven units on the point. In the distance, you may notice a dog leg in the tracks. This is because, many years ago, Granby actually had two sidings! An east siding and a west siding. The east siding was on the north side of the main and the west siding was on the south side of the main. In the late 1980s, the two were connected. The east siding got welded rail and became the main. The old main on the east siding was connected to the west siding and became the extended siding.
