After a night and early morning of snow and sleet, the clouds are now breaking up and making way for the morning sun to shine through. This northbound PRB coal empty (reroute) passes some shards of asphalt discarded as part of the construction going on in the area. The Flatirons Mall, built within the last five years or so, is just visible in the distance.

Very ambitious, Kevin, to scramble across the tracks to the sunside at MP 17. My days of being able to do that are over unless I do some serious rehab. I'm sorry for the construction at this point. By the way the curve in the background was the point of diversion of the line to Bouldeer by way of Superior and Marshall. The remaining grade was obliterated by Storage Tech. That point of divergence was variously named Marshall Jct. as well as Coalton. In the 80'a the point where you stood still had a slag pile from Monarch Mine Number 2. I suppose the high school gets its name from the mine.
