BNSF ES44DC 7494 as well as another intermodal have been waiting for the eastbound intermodal train shown at Beevers in the previous frame (led by the 5394) to pass through the canyon. Now the 7494 is heading west on the single track segment down the canyon on January 13, 2009. During busy periods, trains will be waiting their turn at either or both ends of the single track segment .
