I enjoy the leafless Aspen in the background of this shot, and the clearly jointed rail of the siding of Crescent in the foreground. Crescent, coming in at "only" 5,550 feet long, which is not long enough for most of the coal train on the Moffat. But even manifest don't typically meet at Crescent due to the grade crossing located two thirds of the way through the siding (from the east end).
