A few miles north of Palmer Lake, this southbound coal load is descending through "the Sag". This is one of the location where the Santa Fe tracks once crossed over the Rio Grande tracks in the pre-Joint Line days. Some coal trains will occasionally stop here to cool their traction motors before continuing south.
