After switching out cars near the end of the Lafayette branch, the Buck Local is now ready to head back toward Burns Junction at the main at Broomfield. The train is coming across the Coal Creek trestle. The stickers on GP40M #3005 indicate the unit is equipped with "Smart Start". If the unit idles for a long enough period, it will shut down to conserve fuel and reduce emissions, then auto-start again when it is moved out of idle.
