An eastbound BNSF (empty) grain train slowly descends down from Big Ten Loop toward a red signal at the west switch of Rocky. UP's dispatcher is waiting to hear from the BNSF yard master as to whether or not they can take the train. If the wait will be too long, the train can be lined in to the siding at Rocky. As it turns out, the wait was not long, and the empty received a clear signal after just a few minutes.
