Valmont Power Plant in Boulder receives coal from a joint effort between Union Pacific and BNSF. The coal comes from Union Pacific's North Fork Branch near Grand Junction. Once in Denver, two UP units are left on the train and a BNSF SD70MAC is added. On this day, BN 9556 (in "green and cream") is slowing as it passes along Valmont Reservoir.
