A couple of things to note in this shot. First off, you can clearly see the unique setup of the Broomfield siding here as the mainline and siding are actually on different grades. Second, look at the explosion of development to the west! 20 years ago, there would have been nothing but empty field out there.

I grew up in Longmont and Louisville in the 60's & 70's. Throughout, either my family or my grandparents lived within a mile and a half of this line. Due to a round about airline career, I wound up in Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky, but now, I'm running trains for Norfolk Southern.  
I'd almost forgotten how beautiful the flatirons are!  
Thanks for the pics!

What about those Boeing cars and EMD lease unit? That's not something that most railfans see everyday.
