While there are no trains in this shot, I thought it would be worth including. This is looking northeast down UP's Julesburg Subdivision. This line connects in with the Overland route in Juleburg. Prior to being abandoned in the 1990's, this line continued southwest from Union, CO to Greeley, CO. It offered a more direct route from the midwest (North Platte, NE, etc) to Denver. However, today the line typically only sees a local that runs from Julesburg to Sterling and back.
