Earlier in the day, this train in the siding at Leyden stalled out on the climb out of Rocky and backed in to Leyden. That first crew tied the train down and were picked up by a van. A second crew brought a new unit out to Leyden. The problem as the previous leader was leaking air so bad, it could not be repaired or bypassed. The second crew brought all three units from the head end back to North Yard. Most like, it'll take a third crew to get this empty oil train more than 10 miles west of North Yard!
