A company in Kanapolis, KS builds wind turbines. The bases for the turbines are shipped via rail from California. The bases are sent in the form of unit trains every couple of weeks (give or take). Here is one such train near the York Street grade crossing. It awaits a fresh crew to take it east on the KP into Kansas.

I sent an e-mail copy of your wind turbine train photograph, at York St. in Denver, to our friends at the Danish Wind Industry Association in Copenhagen. They were suitably impressed. What kind of permission do they need to get, in order to use your photograph in their monthly bulletin, which they send to members?

We get those wind trains here in Ontario too. They are built near Niagara Falls and shipped everywhere.  
 
Nice photos. No more UP power up here since the union complained about no hotplates and cloth seats.  
 
Here are some shots of a new CN 8015 hauling them in Ingersoll Ontario
