An eastbound coal load descends past the hot box detector at milepost 22.6. The train is running on a yellow (approach) signal as it will be meeting the westbound Ski Train at Clay. You can just barely see the first (of three) swing helpers on the right side of the image in the distance.

I just discovered your site today doing a search for recent photos of the Union Pacific/Rio Grande in Colorado. I am working on a history of Colorado railroads which is in complete draft form but as yet without a publisher. I have one PowerPoint on my website, http://www.juroba.ne, but I am not a web wizard so I haven't got the rest up. On the Rio Grande, I shot the Marshall Pass Route, San Juan Extension, Lake City Branch, and several others on a trip in August 2004. They are all in PowerPoint form if you want to take a look at them.
