UP once ran trains between Julesburg, NE and La Salle, CO along the Julesburg Sub. At Union, BNSF's Brush Sub connected with the Julesburg Sub and BNSF coal train had trackage rights on the Julesburg Sub for 25 miles to Sterling. In 1993, UP abandoned the Julesburg Sub from Union to Kersey (near La Salle) and ripped the track out. Now, at Union, operations switch from CTC to TWC/ABS and ownership changes from BNSF to UP. However, BNSF dispatches the line between Union and Sterling as they have the only trains that run on the tracks! Here, a BNSF coal load enters CTC and moves from UP tracks on the Julesburg Sub to BNSF tracks on the Brush Sub at Union.
