A bit more than halfway between switches on the main at Leyden, an eastbound loaded oil train weighing over 12,000 tons slowly rolls east on clear signals. The crew on the train, which started their day on the train at Bond, had to add a unit to the train. This, along with the slow speed of the train headed up grade on the west slope, resulted in the crew being on duty for 11 hours at the time of this picture!
