At the east switch of Hillrose, a westbound unit grain train proceeds on a yellow signal. The "earth worm" (as these unit grain trains are often referred to) is will stop on the main at Hillrose to meet two eastbounds. One eastbound is a coal empty on the siding and the second is an empty just south of the siding, holding the main.

This earthworm is very beautiful, actually! The lighting makes the cigar band front really pop! Great work!
