The Kansas Pacific (KP) Line - UP's Limon Subdivision - sees a lot of coal traffic. Most of the coal that comes off the Moffat runs on the KP. So, it is nice when something like a unit auto train comes rolling through every once in awhile! This empty auto train is on the move in between Sable and Mesa, heading east.

Jim, while the majority of trains are coal trains, there are at least two daily manifests (one each direction). The MDVSI and the MSIDV (Denver to Salina, KS and vice versa). Other than those two, I'm not aware of any others that are regularly scheduled.

Are there any daily freights on the KP or is it all coal with rare exception?
