After meeting a pair of westbounds, this eastbound coal load is departing the siding at Leyden. Due to problems encountered in the past, it is rather rare to find a pair of SD9043MACs on the point of a coal train. However, I was pleased to catch such an occurrence on this day! Note the polls that UP has erected (along with a gate off to the left of the frame), preventing cars from driving along the Leyden access road.

Thanks Doug! Anytime I start getting a bit un-motivated, I remind myself that nothing lasts forever. One day, SD90MACs and AC4400CWs will in fact be missed. Just as the onslaught of Tunnel Motors from 30 years ago are missed today.

I enjoy your contemporary photos Kevin. I for one, enjoy looking at the motive power in the D&RGW's latest paint scheme (Armour Yellow). Keep up the good work.
