An eastbound oil train roles east down the main at Leyden. This is the first UP oil train on the Moffat since April! The train loaded near Helper, UT and got held up at Bond for multiple hours. There was no rested crew when the train arrived, and then, once a crew was available, another unit needed to be added to the train. UP 8619 was the one added, giving the train five units for the climb up to the Moffat Tunnel from Tabernash.
