Why go slow motion when No. 6 was backing in and no. 5 was pretty much almost ready to go!

I'm not familiar with Denver.  Do all trains back in, or does one of them have rear power?

They all back in.  The station is now a stub, although at one time it had a direct route south to Colorado Springs and beyond.  Even then, however, I believe that all trains heading west on the Moffat line or east from the Moffat line backed in so they could come out head end first.
