30 years ago, the area around Leyden was rather rural, with just a few houses along the tracks on the south side (which are still there). Today, however, Leyden is smack in the middle of suburbia with new neighborhoods all around an Arvada's newest high school (Ralston Valley High School) nearby as well. Running amidst it all is this westbound coal empty which is actually headed for the Savage loadout near Price, UT. From there, it will continue on west to Victorville, CA.
