A look down the long stretch of empty well cars on the rerouted baretable IOADVR. It took the train almost twelve hours to get from the Moffat Tunnel to Rocky! The primary reason was due to the MNYGJ, which broke a draw bar early in the morning. The other reason is that, well, baretables are just about the lowest priority train on the railroad! Note the last unit on an eastbound coal load coming through Clay is just barely visible in the upper left corner of the shot.

That looks so strange! I thought they always found containers to go back and had never seen load of empty well cars. Good job catching the seldom seen!
