This is just about as ideal a Colorado morning as you can get! UP's MRONY has a clear signal as it approaches the west switch of Leyden.

Geoff, that is more than likely the result of an engine fire. The prime mover (or another component) probably caught fire at some point, burning the paint on the side of the unit.

What is the scorching/burning on the middle unit?
