An eastbound coal load makes its way through the S-Curves at the base of Coal Creek Canyon. Normally, a 2x3x1 power setup (as found on this train) would indicate the train is heading east on the KP branch. Trains running south on the Joint Line are typically setup in a 2x2x2 configuration. But this is the train that disproves the rule. The train will turn south in Denver and head for Eagle Pass, TX.
