And an equally awesome portrait, made even better by the actual inclusion of a human being watching

Is this southbound train stopped? Belden Tunnel is at the summit of the climb with southbound trains coping with a 1.32 percent grade. Perhaps this train went into emergency? If so, the person on the ground may be a crewman checking the running gear?
