For decades, coal for the Valmont power plant has come from western Colorado. However, starting in November 2008, the coal is now coming from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming. BNSF now gets all the business (whereas UP ran the train to and from the mine). BNSF will route the loaded train down the Brush Sub and the empty north on the Front Range Sub. Here is the first train headed north on on the Sub, approaching the Foothills Blvd Underpass.
