UP 5546 - UP 9042 BNSF 8291 - BNSF 7678 BNSF 6975 - BNSF XXX, with local yard pair BNSF 1560 - BNSF 60         
UP 5546 enters the mess a half hour later... catching you up to speed... starting at the left, stopped in the old-new passing lane is the northbound covered hopper train ( BNSF 8291 - BNSF 7678 ), while UP 5546 - UP 9042 sound bound mixed freight charges hard into the mix, angry exhaust is from an unknown/unimaged coal-drag lead pair behind the red on the main line, while the northbound mixed freight "crew change" (in the Vanc Misc folder: BNSF 8160 - NS 9909 - BNSF 5965) is stopped in the wiggle onto the main choking down everything else (Im presuming crew change had to happen north of the yard (curving out of the frame to the port side / east of the approaching UP) because there was no way to get through the stopped northbound double-stack and northbound covered hopper group piled up all on the new by-pass tracks) - the tailend of the triple-header northbound mixed freight visible to the right of the frame, then comes the empty line of well-car duo BNSF 6975 - BNSF XXX, with local yard pair BNSF 1560 - BNSF 60 stuffed out at the end (light visible from BNSF 60). And I think that does it.
